There are four public schools in the county. Three out of the four are elementary schools that serve grades K-8 and the county has one lone high school, Alleghany High School, which serves students in grades 9-12. All of the Alleghany County Public Schools are high performing schools and students in the Alleghany County School District perform average or above in all categories that are usually tested.
