Mount Tabor History
After being dedicated in 1965, Mount Tabor first opened its doors in 1966, serving students in grades 7-11 from Wiley and Northwest Junior High Schools. Twelfth grade was added the following year.
WS/FCS was integrated in 1971. To promote integration, Mount Tabor was changed to a 9th and 10th grade school, and its upperclassmen were moved to Reynolds, North and West Forsyth High Schools.
Due to the changes in structure in 1971, the senior class at Mount Tabor was unable to graduate at their home school, making them the famous "Class that Never Was."
Mount Tabor reorganized to its structure of today, serving grades 9-12.
Laurie Schaefer, English department chair, begins the sophomore project, "Around the World in Eighty Days." It later changes to "Another Way to Educate and Demonstrate."
Mount Tabor undergoes significant renovations, adding the 500 building and removing the trailers that were previously housing several classes.
2016 marked the 50th anniversary of Mount Tabor, which was celebrated by a multitude of events throughout the year.
For the first time in its history, Mount Tabor clinched a state championship title, defeating Cleveland High School 24-16.
