About Gahanna Lincoln High School

History of Gahanna Lincoln

GLHS opened in 1928 in what is considered today as Lincoln Hall. The city of Gahanna and Jefferson Township merged as school districts, creating the challenge for board members to decide on the high school's name. Jefferson High School was considered, but a compromise was reached with the name Gahanna Lincoln High School.

The main high school building, Hamilton Hall, was constructed in 1963 with additions completed in 1968, 1981, 1995 and 2000. The campus most recently expanded with the addition of Clark Hall. A new Gahanna Lincoln High School is currently under construction and is set to open in the fall of 2025.
