• Principal’s Welcome

    Hello Students, Parents, Coosa Community, Alumni, and Guests!

    It’s a GREAT day to be a COOSA EAGLE, and it is indeed an honor to be the principal of COOSA HIGH SCHOOL!  Here at Coosa High School we are committed to “Nothing Less Than EXCELLENCE”.  We encourage students to develop a passion for EXCELLENCE, over mediocrity, in all things - academics, activities, athletics and arts. We are also committed to providing students with an enriching and challenging experience while in high school, an experience that will prepare them for the many opportunities that await them post high school graduation.   As I continue as principal of Coosa High School join me in promoting and expecting EXCELLENCE for all Coosa stakeholders.  

    It’s GREAT to be a COOSA EAGLE!
