Former Alabama State School Superintendent Ed Richardson once referred to the Guntersville City School System as the “Best Kept Secret in Alabama.” With a tradition of excellence, the Guntersville City Schools rank among the top in Alabama in standardized test scores, and above the state and national average on the ACT. Students attend schools in excellent facilities with small class sizes, highly qualified teachers, and access to state-of-the-art technology.

Students have access to a wide variety of courses with an emphasis on reading and math in the elementary grades. Middle school and high school students have countless electives with opportunities for college credit in the 11th and 12th grades. Numerous extracurricular offerings exist in the fine arts, i.e. art, choral music, band, and in athletics, where we have consistently been the highest ranked public school in our classification.


A wide selection of preschools and day care centers are also available to Guntersville residents. Institutions of higher learning include Snead State Community College in Boaz and Jacksonville State University, which offers undergraduate and graduate level video conferencing classes in Guntersville.
