    School History

    Established in 1959, the school is named for James Garvin Chastain, Jr. The son of Baptist missionaries Chastain lived in Mexico during his boyhood. He went to school in Blue Mountain, MS, and later graduated from Mississippi College. He became JPS superintendent in 1933. During his administration, the Reserve Officer Training Corps (known as JROTC) was established at Central High School.

    Adopters

    We are fortunate to have a very involved community. School adopters are Christ United Methodist Church, Eaton Aerospace, and Fresh Start Christian Church. We are also proud to have a strong Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) at Chastain.
