Corner High School is a four-year public high school located at 10005 Corner School Road in the Bagley community of Dora in northwest Jefferson County. It is one of fourteen high schools in the Jefferson County School System. The school's colors are black and gold and its athletic teams are called the "Yellow Jackets". The principal is Pat Keedy.
The first school serving the Corner community opened in a one-room log building in 1884. That schoolhouse was damaged in a tornado in 1908. A new four-room wing was added in 1922 and the high school was accredited in 1923. Another addition, housing a library, auditorium and office, was completed in 1928. Piecemeal construction continued to update and expand the school's facilities over the years. A new library and home-economics building was completed in 1976 and gymnasiums were completed in the late 1990s.
A new school building was completed in 2010, using funds from a $1 billion bond issue supported by a 1¢ increase in Jefferson County sales taxes proposed in 2005 by then-Jefferson County Commission president Larry Langford. The building, designed by Davis Architects, features an 8-column portico with a blue-domed cupola.
