Paris High School was located near Paris Mountain, southwest of Greenville, SC. (Their address was actually Taylors, SC.) The school was situated within the boundaries of Camp Sevier, a major Army training center for soldiers destined to see action during World War I. The first graduating class was in 1930, the last in 1960.

In 1960, Wade Hampton High School was created by consolidating Paris High School and Taylors High School along with some students from Greenville High School.

[from Facebook info:]
Paris High alumni have a Reunion once a year, usually at Lake Robinson in Greer, SC. They also have a breakfast meeting once a month at the Country Ham House on Rutherford Road on the fourth Tuesday of each month, starting at 8:30 AM.

[Just an odd note…]
In 1950, Wade Corn, a standout college football player, graduated from Wofford College. His first coaching job was that fall at Paris High School where he compiled a 10-1 record. He left in 1951 to coach Lancaster High School where he led them to 3 state championship games, winning a state title in 1959.
