West Gadsden High School is the home of the Mighty Panthers. This is a community-based public school, located in Gadsden County's smallest municipality (1 square mile), Greensboro, which is about 30 miles west of Tallahassee, Florida.
West Gadsden High School was formed during the summer of 2004 when Chattahoochee High School was closed and the students were merged with students who attended Greensboro High School. Our students are those who formerly attended Chattahoochee Elementary, Greensboro Elementary, and James A. Shanks Middle School. The school name [West Gadsden High School], colors [black, white, gray and maroon], mascot [Panthers], and many other aspects were planned by a council of students representing Chattahoochee and Greensboro High School. The 2007-2008 school term marked the beginning of an era at our new site which is located at 200 Providence Road, on the corner directly across the street from the former Greensboro High School, currently Greensboro Elementary School.
