Welcome to Prattville High School!


Dr. Farris is thrilled to be starting his fourth year serving as principal at Prattville High School. Building upon the school's rich tradition, Dr. Farris is dedicated to ongoing improvements that directly benefit students. Over the past three years, significant strides have been achieved, including an impressive 10% increase in the graduation rate and a noteworthy 12% rise in College and Career Readiness among our students. Moreover, the 2023-2024 school year saw a remarkable 10% decrease in chronic absenteeism, thanks to our families' understanding of the critical importance of regular school attendance.

During this time, Prattville High School has also made substantial capital improvements, such as painting, flooring upgrades, and the installation of smart panels in all classrooms. Additionally, providing 1:1 Chromebooks has enhanced students' preparedness for their future beyond high school. Dr. Farris remains steadfast in serving the Prattville community by ensuring an educational experience that meets the diverse needs of all students while encouraging them to reach their highest potential in academics, the arts, and athletics.

Looking ahead, Dr. Farris is eager to collaborate with students, parents, teachers, staff, and stakeholders to continue fostering success at Prattville High School. We will continue a focus on enhancing instructional opportunities to further prepare students for college and career readiness (CCR) upon graduation. Dr. Farris aims for every senior to leave with a credential that signifies their readiness for post-secondary education or the workforce. Support will be provided for students pursuing credentials such as the ACT, ACT WorkKeys, college credits, career tech certifications, or military service. Dr. Farris encourages parents and guardians to join in motivating students toward achieving these goals as starting with the class of 2026 students must earn a CCR to graduate in the state of Alabama.

Prattville High School offers a wide range of extracurricular activities, providing students with opportunities to engage in clubs and organizations that enrich their high school experience and foster personal growth. Dr. Farris emphasizes the importance of student involvement outside the classroom as a means to cultivate motivation and a sense of belonging.

Dr. Farris invites everyone to participate in Prattville High School's journey towards achieving excellence in all endeavors. Looking forward to the upcoming school year, Dr. Farris is enthusiastic about the positive experiences that await students. Building upon the strong foundation and legacy of Prattville High School, Dr. Farris is committed to continuous improvement and ensuring that every student thrives.
