Principal's Corner



It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Athens High School website.  Your interest in our school and the many programs offered is greatly appreciated.

 Athens High School is located in the heart of the Tennessee Valley and the only high school in the city of Athens, Alabama.  It is my pleasure to serve as the leader of a school rich in tradition with a proven record of outstanding performance.  Since being founded in 1937, Athens High School has continued to achieve local, state, and national recognition for student achievement in community service activities, academics, and athletics.  Community stakeholders, students, and school personnel strive each day to continue the pursuit of excellence.

 Athens High School has approximately one thousand students and one hundred faculty and staff with the unified goal of providing quality educational experiences for all students.  Athens High School offers programs designed to provide each student the opportunity to reach their individual potential.  Academic programs focus on preparing students for college and career choices.  Strong academic programs, competitive extracurricular experiences, along with our focus on service, makes for a unique school experience.

 I trust that your visit to our website will provide the information needed and supply you with a brief introduction to our school.  I invite you to not only view the information, but allow Athens High School personnel to provide you with a greater understanding of the feeling of community within our school by calling or visiting our campus. 

 Again, thank you for your interest and we look forward to assisting you!

 Go Golden Eagles!
