There are many clubs available for a variety of interests. These include clubs for foreign language/culture, agriculture, volunteer work, athletics, art/creative writing, etc. Most of the clubs have meetings each month and sometimes even more often. The most popular club is the Key Club since so many students are interested in helping the local community. The Foreign Language Club hosts a public food tasting each year and is a another very fun option. The school's FFA chapter participates in many career development events and often places in the state levels. The faculty is very supportive and some are even members and act as spokespersons for the clubs.

I was able to graduate from this school one semester early with an advanced diploma so that I could begin attending college early also. The classes and faculty made college prep an important factor in the classroom, and that has really been great for me so far in college. It has helped me to feel more prepared for my courses, but also more secure with my decisions. They also spoke often of what the "real world" was going to be like, and all of the advice and predictions the teachers provided with have come true. Honesty is valued at Alleghany High School, and that has been one of the most important skills I acquired during my time there. The life lessons I learned there have helped me be more comfortable at college and with the major life changes that have come with it.
Sports are definitely a big deal to our students and teachers at our school. We all take great pride in competing in a great conference of the VHSL. Over sixty percent of our students are involved in a sport, and many also play multiple sports. We have a great fan support from our community. The only thing that lacks are the athletic facilities. They are very out of date, and close to no money is ever spent on bettering them.
