A Collected History of School Shootings in the United States

Here is a handy navigation tool to explore the only full History of School Shootings in the United States ever written (as of 2023); featuring an in depth look at every mass shooting on record that involved a school between 1776 and 2022, with a particular focus on the most recent “major shootings” such as Columbine, Sandy Hook, Isla Vista, Parkland, and Uvalde. As a bonus, although we did not look at 2023 or beyond as a whole, we’ve added a detailed examination of the 2023 Nashville Covenant School shooting.

We also look at the 5 most deadly mass shootings not to involve a school in “Other Mass Shootings,” and the “Trends and Conclusions” wrap up looks at patterns of motivational factors involved in mass shootings, and breaks down the statistics of mass shootings, with a focus on the statistical manipulations common to the subject.
