As a SHS Alumni ..The school is great. However the time I went through we had two new counselors and neither one was prepared for the job and did not help the senior class at all on getting scholarships and getting prepared for college. Also the Board of Education needed and still needs some changing. If that happened then this school would be no comparison to any.

As an SHS alum from a few years ago, my information may be a little out of date, but I feel it is still pertinent. Most of the teachers did their honest best and were as helpful as they could be. Also, it was a safe place to be. I never felt at all worried while wandering around late or in the crowded halls, etc. Even when I was a student, though, I was disappointed with some aspects of the administration. There didn't seem to be much emphasis on getting students prepared for or into major universities. The classes simply weren't offered, for one thing. Once I started college, I realized how under-prepared I was for math and science courses. I really don't think the teachers could have done a better better job of teaching their classes. The problem seemed to be that the school was not set up for this.

Scottsboro High School is a beautiful school and the staff and teachers are so helpful and friendly.My son is even receiving extra help in math before school starts.The teachers care enough to go out of their way to help a student.I can't say enough.

A Scottsboro High alum, I am always more than happy to share my opinion about SHS. It is a truly great school with a caring, compassionate faculty, a hard-working administration, and a challenging curriculum. The faculty honestly want the students to succeed, and you can always hear words of encouragement floating through the halls. Safety was never a difficult issue while I was there, and I'm sure that tradition continues. Extracurricular activities are abundant, and opportunities for leadership are at every corner.

Scottsboro High School is the best school in north Alabama, Our student to teacher ratio is perfect. I had three children to go from K - 12 and could not have asked for a better school system.
