Pelham High School Earns GreatSchools College Success Award
Posted on 09/27/2022
The Alabama State Department of Education recently announced the Alabama high schools that have earned the 2022 GreatSchools.org College Success Award, and Pelham High School is one of 66 schools in the state of Alabama to be recognized. The award celebrates public high schools that are successfully preparing students to enroll and succeed in college.

On average, 86 percent of students from College Success Award-winning schools do not require remediation in college. The College Success Award also focuses on educational equity, recognizing schools that excel at preparing K-12 students from households of all income levels.

Now in its fifth year, the College Success Award is based on data that show how our school prepares students to succeed after high school, including whether they enroll in college, are ready for college-level coursework, and persist into their second year.  Learn more about the College Success Award and promising practices for college success.
