Resident of Alcoa, my family and I love it. Springbrook park neighborhood is exceptional!!! The schools and community are very welcoming and there is so much diversity in this little city, it’s truly surprising! People genuinely care here! It’s literally a modern day Mayberry in color!!

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.
