Dr. Jill Pittman

At Overton we are more than just a school; we are a family. It's not just a place to teach and learn, it's a place to build relationships, to build character, to build a bright future. With 1,900+ students from countries all over the world speaking over 46 languages, we are proud to be called Tennessee' s most linguistically and ethnically diverse high school.

We recognize that teenagers do not have all the answers to life's hard questions, but we give you our pledge that we will guide them developmentally, academically and socially so that no matter where they go after high school, they will leave us with a strong set of skills that will serve them well into the future.

If you are looking for an educational setting that provides a safe but spirited environment, a place that values diverse perspectives, and one that embraces parent and community involvement, you have found it at JOHS.
