Saraland has good students and a beautiful school however there is not much else positive to say about it. Very unorganized and poor communication from administration. No clear expectations to teachers. Teacher morale very low.

Great school! Awesome band program, one of the best in the area. If you are looking for a great school with community support, then Saraland High is it.

It is a beautiful school, with all the bells and whistles. With that being said..they seem to be trying to run it like a prison. They seem to be much more focused on discipline for very minor uniform issues, etc..rather than trying to provide a great education.

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.
