Alcoa High School has fantastic teachers and staff. They're friendly, nice, caring, and truly want to see you graduate. You don't have to be afraid to see them after or before class if you're struggling, and you're free to talk to them without feeling like they will make fun of you. The academics are amazing, the sporting events are fun, and everyone is nice!

I loved Alcoa High School! Alcoa is a very welcoming community and the school is just the same. There are children from all different types of backgrounds who share all different types of ethnicities; however, they all come together. They also provide a high academic as well as athletic atmosphere.
Great experience! Caring staff that goes above and beyond for the students. Small school where you are not just a number but a name.
