Guntersville in Marshall County, Alabama — The American South (East South Central)
Claysville Junior High School
Construction of the Guntersville Dam and its accompanying relocation of people in the area increased the population of the Claysville community resulting in the consolidation of the schools at Bakerís Chapel and Henryville. By 1950, indoor restrooms and five classrooms had been added as well as a lunchroom. By 2003, the campus had grown to two classroom buildings, an activities building, a lunchroom, and a gymnasium on twenty-two and one-half acres.
Although many teachers, support employees, and generation of students have walked these hall since the schoolís first days, pride in the community and the school has not waned. This pride and unending community support have accompanied the evolution of the 1928 fledgling school to the present
