Sylacauga City Schools is the cornerstone of big things happening in our community. The school system supports four schools educating more than 2,300 children in grades PreK through 12. Of our 180 certified teachers, 16 are National Certified Board teachers. More than half of our students ride school buses on one of 16 different routes throughout the city. Last year Sylacauga High School seniors rose to a 90% graduation rate, earning more than $2.5 million in scholarship opportunities.
Nearly half of all high school students are enrolled in Advanced Placement courses, and more than 1,500 students are enrolled in Career Tech courses preparing them for future success in college, their careers, and the community.
Last school year more than 91,000 breakfasts were served and over 255,600 healthy lunches were eaten by hungry kids.
Twelve different athletic sports are offered, as well as Art, Band, Choral Music, and Theatre. Additionally, a wide variety of extra-curricular clubs and organizations provide enrichment experiences for a well-rounded education and teaching social and leadership skills.
The Sylacauga City Schools Foundation provides grant funding to supplement the classroom experience for students.
Both Indian Valley and Pinecrest elementary schools are designated “Leader in Me” schools, and Pinecrest was named a 2014-2015 CLAS Banner School.
