Graduating Competitive Students
Director's Message

July 7, 2016


Welcome to the Alcoa City Schools’ webpage! I hope you find it useful and informative. It is an honor for me to serve Alcoa City as your Director of Schools and I want to thank you for your interest in and support of our school system and our students.  We take very seriously the challenge of our mission statement: Graduating Competitive Students.   I am proud to be a part of a School System and a community that has a rich tradition of educational exceptionalism, and I pledge to you that all my efforts will be to maintain and enhance our outstanding tradition of cultural diversity, teaching excellence, and strong academic performance.


As educators, one of our biggest challenges is to prepare our students to live, work and succeed in an ever-changing world.  They must develop skills that allow them to solve complex problems, collaborate with others, think critically, and possess the skills necessary to be successful in college and a career.  I am confident that Alcoa City Schools will produce competitive graduates prepared to succeed in all their endeavors after leaving Alcoa City Schools.


Again, I welcome you to our school systems’ website and invite you to visit our four exceptional schools and see our focus on providing an engaging educational experience for all of our students.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance to you.


Thank you,


Brian Bell, Ed.D

Director of Schools
