Top 10 Best and Worst Public Schools in Tuscaloosa County

The rankings for this gallery were based on the 2018- 2019 Alabama Department of Education School Report Cards for the Tuscaloosa City School District and the Tuscaloosa County School District. This data was used because many categories in the report card for 2019-2020 was waived due to the pandemic. In the event of a tie, the schools with the same overall score were ranked by academic achievement scores. In all other cases of a tie, the schools were listed alphabetically.
