About our School

  • Located north of Atlanta, Georgia, just a few miles east of downtown Alpharetta, Alpharetta High School opened in the Fall of 2004 to serve students residing in north Fulton County. In 2018, Alpharetta became an International Baccalaureate World School authorized to offer the Diploma Programme to eligible Juniors and Seniors. As the Alpharetta Raiders, our school colors are black and silver with an accent of burgundy.

    At Alpharetta High School we believe that education creates opportunity. As a learning community, we seek to inspire intellectual curiosity and stimulate personal creativity by setting high expectations and developing engaging environments to promote a culture of continuous learning where hard work is a contributor to success. We respect the diverse perspectives, beliefs, and backgrounds of others and strive to build a foundation of self-governing integrity that recognizes each of our unique contributions to both our local and the global community.
