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
