Alleghany was where I grew up so it was destined for me to go to high school here. It’s great that everyone knows each other, but that is also a huge downfall because of drama. I have never been more excited to leave somewhere in my life.

I would only recommend this high school to kids and families that only want there kids to succeed at a community college right down the road that will only get you a job around the area with no benefits.
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.
