Pell City High School is the sole public high school in the Pell City School District, which split from St Clair County Schools in the 1980s. As Pell City has grown, its student enrollment has surpassed its capacity of 900 students. The recent construction of a multi-purpose building with a new gymnasium has only partially eased the overcrowding.
In 1997 a number of students protested an October 29 ruling by District Court Judge Ira De Ment describing precedents for constitutional limits to prayer in schools. They left class unexcused and were suspended for three days.
