Principal’s Corner

Welcome to the “Mustang Family”  

Tim GastawayArgonaut has strong traditions and a school culture that facilitates success for ALL students. Established in 1913 as Jackson Joint Union High School, we used that name until 1983 when we merged with Ione High School to become Argonaut High School. That year we moved near the site of the historic Argonaut Mine, featured in the book “47 Down,” and have been there ever since. 

We are a small comprehensive public high school with just over 550 students and 25 teachers. Our distinct geographic location situated in the center of the historic Mother Lode of Amador County has picturesque views in every direction. We are known for our supportive community that provides an overwhelming amount of encouragement for our students and school. We are “small but mighty,” and excited to share our academics, culture and programs that make us uniquely distinguished with ALL students that attend. 

The Argonaut High School Mustang family strives to create a positive and supportive environment in which ALL are challenged and inspired to achieve their full potential. Students are expected to have the Courage to Compete in everything they do in school and life while remaining Respectful, Responsible and Resilient citizens.  With the facilitation of our talented and compassionate faculty and staff, our students receive an individualized world-class education matched by few in our state. 

Welcome to Mustang Mountain!


Troy Gassaway
Principal, Argonaut High School


COURAGE TO COMPETE Scholarship 2023

Seniors are given the opportunity to earn this prestigious award for their overall achievements in their high school career. The number of recipients will vary each year depending on the number of qualified applicants. There is no minimum or maximum number of awards given in any year. All students selected to receive this award will be announced at Senior Awards Night in May and again at Graduation where they will receive a medal at the ceremony by a teacher of their choice. There may be a monetary and gift award. If you do not submit this application by the deadline, we will assume you are not interested. There are no deadline extensions for the Courage to Compete award. Thanks for having the Courage to Compete for this award!
