Etowah High School is a public high school located in Attalla, Alabama that educates students in grades 9-12, and was founded in 1909. Its mascot is the blue devil. It is currently housed in the fourth building of the school's history. The current school is located on Case Ave, 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.

The school is known for its football athletes.
