Overall, the school has been very helpful towards others in need. Whether students are struggling in a subject or a student needs some financial support, the teachers and the administration have always responded in a helpful manner. They are simply determined to help. The only thing that prevents from this school getting a five star from me is that they seem to concentrate a little too much on athletics, which is not a bad thing, but a great disadvantage towards others activities like a band. But even then, I would heavily reccomend this school. After all, what school is perfect?

I started at Muscle Shoals High my freshman year. The students were very welcoming and the teachers are wonderful! There is strong school spirit and support for all extra curricular activities. They have a strong sports program but also have lots to offer the less athletic students. I love the tight knit community and community support!
I feel like the Muscle Shoals City Schools have really prepared me for college. My teachers take a genuine interest in my success. The Career Academy is top notch and offers so many electives that I always have a hard time deciding when it comes time to register for classes. They have lots of programs where you can get certifications too. The campus is big, but still easily navigated. Although academics has been my focus, I feel like there is something for everyone. We have tons of clubs you can join, band, or just about any sport you can think of. I feel like Muscle Shoals excels at whatever they go to do, be it football, golf, or a math competition. We are here to win.
