This is a caring school. The students respect the teachers and the teachers genuinely love the students.

I have two sons that attend this school and they really enjoy it. The environment there is real good and the faculty and staff will bend over backwards to help you or your children out the best they can. Go Eagles

I moved my family 2,000 from Los Angeles so our kids could enjoy the school experience that helped make me who I am. Go Eagles!

I went to pisgah high school until recently. It broke my heart to leave everything is put together nicley. Teachers and all Facualty is well established and great with the kids. The Achedemics and Athletics are all a big part which makes it the best school in the Jackson county school district!

Pisgah. A Great school. Am not 'from' there but have seen the school function on all levels. Atmosphere is laid back, but don't let that make you think things are not taken seriously. Academics are strongly stressed, students are made aware of opportunities for learning in real world experiences like Leadership seminars, Girls'/ Boys' State, HOBY, Alabama/Auburn Leadership seminars, Model Senate to name a few. Much thought/preparation goes into scheduling so that students are able to progress toward graduation and get the skills necessary to function in the world. Students obtain scholarships through academics, technical programs, the arts, and athletics. Many of the top students are active in clubs and athletics. The faculty, as a whole, are dedicated, willing to go the second mile, and willing to put in countless unpaid hours. Not large enough in staff/student interest to have band. Does offer public speaking. Drama available at community college.

I think Pisgah High School is one of the best schools in Jackson County. I disagree wit the remark that this is the worst school! I go there & i will send my children there when am older. This school has a great athletics program; we dont spend too much attenion on the sthletics. We have many state championships in softball and basketball.

I have had 5 children at Pisgah. 2 are still there. No art, no speech classes, no drama clubs, no band, no Debate Club, no second language (until the past two years) no wrestling team, no summer classes at all! Military recruiters regularly stalk the halls as they do in most poorer school districts. Employees are sweet and dedicated but lack awareness of learning disabilities. Not being valued could be why there is so little parental involvement in that school.

I attended Pisgah High and was very satisfied with the overall experience. They are one of the top scoring K-12 schools in statewide testing, and their athletic programs are competitive. Being a small school (graduate about 70 a year), they do extremely well with what they have. If you will be relocating to Jackson County, I would definately recommend Pisgah area schools (including Rosalie Elementary) if you want the best education offered in the area.

This school is average for elementary. high school is poor. athletics are all that seem important. no band is offered. athletes are given special attention. too much school(days) are missed for athletic activities.preparation for college is not adequate. rooms are crowded in elementary. I do think the principal is very oriented toward a safe atmosphere for the children. P.T.O. meetings are not scheduled for all members through-out the school year. only officers know what is going on. this is a school that one has to stay involved constantly with.

I think this is a wonderful school, and when I have children, I'm sending them to PHS.
—Submitted by a student


Posted January 4, 2005

This school is wonderful. I moved from a great school district to this one. I had my doubts after having problems with another school in this district. Pisgah put me and my children at ease. they are preparing my child for college and for life. they are making my child strive to be the best! and another one of my children who hated school. now won't miss a day! thats a great school!

Posted October 1, 2004

I am a former student and I feel I was well prepared for college. This school does place too much emphasis on athletics and not enough on academics. However, there are some exceptionally dedicated teachers who are mainly involved in adademic areas. I do not agree with the review stating that this is one of the worst schools in the state. It could use some improvement, but what school couldn't. Overall, I was well satisfied with the education I received and I would not hesitate to send my children there if I still lived in Pisgah.

I think that PHS is the greatest schools in all of Jackson Co. It has a great acadimic program as well as athletic programs. If you need a school for your child to go to you should choose Pisgah. I go there and it is wonderful. I think people need to realize that Pisgah isn't bad at all.

Pisgah High School is a good school in the county it is in. It has great Atheltic activitys and is the #2 school in academics in the Jasckon County. The school has problems with drugs, and sexual activity. Overall it is a good school for the county it is in.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 15, 2004

This is probably one of the worst high schools in the entire state. It in no way prepares students for college. If this school concentrated as much on academics as it did on athletics, it would be the greatest school in the state.
—Submitted by a former student


Posted January 2, 2004

This is a great school that takes learning above all. If you are looking for a great elementary/ high school, this is the place.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Alabama used the Alabama High School Graduation Exam (AHSGE) to test high school students in reading, math, language, biology and social studies. High school students must pass the AHSGE in order to graduate. The AHSGE is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Alabama. The goal is for all students to pass the test.
