I've moved all around the Knox area and Alcoa has by far been the best, the teachers are supportive and always around to help. It feels very safe and I feel like I have learned a lot.

Alcoa is very friendly. The people are all welcoming and kind. The area is also very lush and green, with the exception of some litter. It is also safe at night, though certain places could use more light.
This is an awesome small town with lots of potential. It has been a great town for a starter home. The market is very affordable. Another plus has been that we have had no issues with neighbors or safety.
