My experience with Handley High School was absolutely great! I had amazing administrators, that helped me get through my high school years. They always cared about our safety, academics, sports, health, and pretty much anything they knew they could help us withstand. My school is also awarded for bronze of the State of Alabama. I would recommend Handley High over any other high school in the State of Alabama.

Handley was one of the first schools in our area to go one-to-one with laptops for students; additionally, they issue backpacks to each student so everyone has a high-quality backpack for his or her computer. It is, overall, a great school that cares about students in their current growth and future success; the teachers take the time to know students and ensure every student has the chance to succeed. Additionally, they have quality coaches for all sports and phenomenal music and drama programs.
Over the past four years, Handley High School has helped shape me into the strong-willed, hard-working individual that I am today. We have so many great extracurricular activities that allow students to become involved in something positive and build lasting friendships. The faculty and staff is dedicated to preparing us for life after high school. Our counselor makes a huge effort to aid each student in creating a plan for their future. We have a resource officer that ensures our safety each day and escorts our sports teams to every event. In ninth grade, we start a teacher advisory program (TAP), and are assigned a teacher that serves as a mentor for all four years of high school. This has made a significant impact on my success and at HHS. When I walk out of the doors of the front office of Handley High in May for the last time, I feel confident that I will be prepared for whatever lies ahead.
