On behalf of Boaz City Schools, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website. We hope you will find our website a valuable source of information about the wonderful opportunities available for our students. 

At BCS we have a vision: Through an expectation of excellence everyday by everyone (E4), we strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment to develop and empower productive citizens with the knowledge, skills, and character to achieve their full potential in a rapidly changing world. 

This statement is represented in countless ways across the district as our exceptional staff strives to expand opportunities to enhance student learning through personalized 21st century learning. For example, our elementary and intermediate schools provide opportunities for young learners to develop the foundations for future educational success. Another prime example of our vision coming to life is our Career and Technical Education programming. BCS middle school students are building foundational skills through quality electives such as robotics, and high school students are engaged in learning the hard skills necessary for a career in healthcare, engineering, culinary, and finance/business. Through authentic , real-world learning experiences, they are developing skills required to be competitive and highly employable in a global job market. 

Our commitment to our vision reaches much further than these few examples, and I challenge you to learn more by exploring our website or by contacting me via email at or via phone at 256-593-8180. 

At BCS, we strive to ensure our schools remain a source of pride for our community. We value community support and input as education is really a partnership involving community members, school personnel, and of course students and their families. I encourage you to become involved in our schools by being a volunteer, attending student events, or serving as a mentor for our students. 

I invite you to return to this page often as I will be providing updates about important and exciting happenings as BCS continues to strive towards our mission: an expectation of excellence everyday by everyone (E4). We Are Boaz!


Best Regards,


Dr. Shannon H. Stanley
