Cherokee High School was founded in 1925 as Cherokee Vocational High School as it was the first designated vocational school in Colbert County.  The original high school building was located where the current gymnasium stands. As the school expanded with the end of segregation in 1968 the old high school became the junior high school. That building burned on January 21, 1971.

Cherokee High School is located in Cherokee, Alabama and serves the western portion of Colbert County as part of the Colbert County School system.  It is located along County Road 21 (North Pike) off of U.S. Highway 72.
