Etowah High School (EHS) is a 9-12 public high school in Attalla, Alabama, United States. It was established in 1909 and is part of the Attalla City Schools district. It is currently housed in the fourth building of the school's history and located on Case Avenue, the former site of Alma Hinson Middle School.

This school replaced Officer's Club Jr. High which was housed in the officer's club on the Camp Sibert Army Base which was built during World War 2. The Old Building, Stone Building and New Building were located in Attalla on South 4th St. The Junior High School is located in the " New Building", the old and stone building being torn down.

Part of the changes at Etowah High include its transitioning from a combination county-city school system to a "city only" school, which dropped the school's enrollment from more than 1,000 in the mid and late 20th century. The current enrollment after dropping to a point between 400 and 500 now numbers around 750.
