On my behalf Talladega High School is one of the most amazing schools that you can attend. The faculty there is loving and caring. The pricipal (Darren Douthit) is a pricipal who cares about your future and wont give up on nobody. The sports, Band, and other extracurricular activities are also wonderful. Talladega High School has a lot to offer to the City of Talladega. We also have a wonderful Director (Dr. Joanne Horton) she has came and change a lot of things at the high school and has done a lot of school improvments and we gladly thank her fot that.
