Carbon Hill High School is a high school in the Walker County Schools system serving about 400 students in the city of Carbon Hill. Gypsy Stovall is the current principal.

Carbon Hill's athletic teams are known as the Bulldogs, and the school colors are blue and white.

Carbon Hill High School was founded in 1936 as a city school, and was absorbed into the county school system in 1983. The high school building was destroyed by a fire on June 27, 2002. The next fall classes were held in a group of temporary buildings nearby. When a tornado destroyed the nearby Carbon Hill Elementary-Junior High School in November of the same year, students alternated half days in the temporary buildings.

Based on test scores from 2017, Carbon Hill High School was deemed a "failing school" under the terms of the Alabama Accountability Act, permitting parents to claim tax credits to transfer students to another school.
