I am a student at SHS and I am VERY proud. This school is my family. Everyone is treated by the teachers as if they are the teachers own children. My experience has been amazing. I am in the Eleventh grade and I have lived my high school years to the fullest thanks to Sylacauga High School. This is a good way to narrow it down as to how this school is... "We are family".

I went here my junior year and will be leaving for my old school by senior year. The teachers are typically good, but they take their sweet time updating the online grading system. Also, this is not a private Christian school but is treated like one by most of the students and teachers. It is a very stifling environment for non-Christians. Separation of church and state exists for a reason. Overall, I did learn a lot although my self esteem suffered a blow from the social ignorance that runs rampant in this small town.

My children had a terrible experience. I had three kids go through there and none of them enjoyed it at all. To this day my oldest son can't stand most of the teachers there. They are arrogant, uncooperative, fake, & inconsistent with rules & policies. Their principal that they have now was a teacher there prior and he is no different. You would think that out of three kids that one of them would have enjoyed some of their high school experience. It ashame but most students who have a great experience there or more of the well connected students. Call it what you like but I know many parents in the community that feel the same way. My daughter who never gets into trouble got a detention for asking for her locker combination. Who does that? I email the teacher and she had a smart attitude! That policy wasn't even in the student hand book. In many cases I believe that they get caught up in rules, regulations, & "principles" than they do in what is the best interest for the kids. Teachers will fail kids with no concern or conscience & not even have the dignity to call the parent. I would never recommend this school to anyone.

This is the high school I attended. It was great then, but is awesome now. I have several Grandchildren who will be attending here. Sylacauga is a great place to raise a family and all of their schools are wonderful!

This is a wonderful school. The teachers and the faculty are just awesome. I'm a junior this year and I am so sad to be leaving next year...I just hope the time goes really slow. Almost every teacher I have ever had went out of their way to help me understand the material and one has even inspired me to become a teacher myself. I have formed relationships with other kids and even teachers that I think will last forever and I don't believe it would have been this way if I was in another school system.

I'm freshman at Sylcauga High School, and I make pretty good grades, but ever since I started here, I don't understand anything, and the teachers don't take time to help me. But everything else here, like sports etc. is wonderful.

My son was failing a class and even though I had spoken to the teacher and checked the computer's every week, I had no idea. The teachers do not keep the computer system updated for us to see what is really happening with our children. I found out he was failing 6 weeks before the end of the year. I had to call a conference with the teacher...not the other way around.

I am a senior at Sylacauga High School (2005) and the school is great. Some of the rules are outragious, but the discipline is good. You receive a good education from teachers that care.

I graduated from Sylacauga High in 1994 and can say that is the best school for Academics and Extra-Curricular activies in the area. I may be biased, but the staff pushed for Academic excellence and it really helped me as I continued my education through college to discipline myself and utilize my time wisely.

I am a junior at Sylacauga High School (2004-2005). This is a terrific school when you actually take time to get used to the faculty, teachers, and others aroound. What makes Sylacauga High the best school around here is it works just like the community. everyone is treated like family and if you are having trouble with anything someone is always happy to help you.

Hello I graduated from sylacauga high back in 2002. I really enjoyed everyting about it. But since then I have lost all of my math skills and others. I believe they need more one on one with the students. So, they can comprehend more in the class. They have plenty of time to work with the students. But on the over all score would be a 10 the academics are great and very up to day on things.
