- Mortimer Jordan High School was named after Captain Mortimer Harvie Jordan, a soldier who died in 1918 in World War 1 in France and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. He graduated from the University of Alabama and later opened his own medical practice before joining the military during World War I.
- The school opened in 1920 in Morris, Alabama, a rural city in northern Alabama that has a population of about 1,800 citizens. MJHS first hosted a total of only 90 students in the first year in a five room building. The first water system for the school was installed in the 1930's and the first gym was built in 1936 and 1937. One of the most notable staff members was Mr. Jimmie A. Trotter, who worked as both a coach, teacher, and principal for 36 years. The school just recently changed in 2004 from a 7th-12th grade school to only 9th-12th with the opening of the new North Jefferson Middle School in 2004.
