Public Schools

Northport area students, dependent on their location and zoning restrictions, have two school systems serving area educational needs. There are 58 public schools available to Northport students: Tuscaloosa County Schools maintain 34 public schools and Tuscaloosa City Schools maintain 24 schools. This selection of schools includes zoned schools, open-enrollment magnet schools, specialized vocational and technical schools, alternative education centers and facilities for students with special needs. Northport elementary students are primarily served by Northport and Huntington Place Elementary schools, while middle and high school students in Northport attend Echols Middle School and Tuscaloosa County High School. However, the federally funded school choice program allows students to attend schools outside of their zoning districts, so refer to the links below to determine if this option is right for your student.
