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.

I like the diversity of students as well as how involved the faculty is in making sure that students learn the material. It isn't all about test scores, although the school always performs well. It is more about the overall education that the students receive. They have an outstanding selection of Early Postsecondary Opportunities (EPSOs). Opportunities for success are endless.
The school itself is relatively new. It was clean and kept at all times (shoutout to the janitors). The food in the cafeteria was much better than many other schools that I have gone to in previous years (again, shoutout to the lunch ladies). The teachers actually cared about their students and made sure that every student understood the content we were learning at the time. Overall I felt welcomed by the teachers and faculty and it was one of the best schools I have went to.
