The first Zanesville High School was built in downtown North 6th Street 1849 and opened its doors in 1855. In 1908, a new Zanesville High School was built across the street and named Lash High School in honor of Superintendent William D. Lash. The fourth version, was opened on September 9, 1954 on Blue Ave. This land was willed by John McIntire for public park/education. At the time of its opening, the Times Recorder said of the $4 million school, "you have to see it to believe it.".[2] Old Lash High became Hancock Jr High until it was demolished in the early 1980s.

The fifth Zanesville High School opened its doors on Tuesday, September 7, 2010 built on the same land as the old ZHS on Blue Ave.
