With a tradition of excellence, the Guntersville City Schools are 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 mathematics in the elementary grades.  Middle school and high school students have many options for electives with opportunities for college credit in 11th and 12th grades.  Numerous extracurricular offerings exist in fine arts (art, choral, music and band) and athletics, where we have constantly ranked high in our public school classification.

Vocational and technical education courses are taught at Guntersville High School. High School students may also take courses at the Marshall Technical School located in Guntersville.

In addition to the regular instructional program in grades K-12, special needs programs are tailored to the gifted, the average learner, the slow learner and the handicapped.
