Brantley High School was ranked one of the top 10 for athletes in Alabama by Niche, a website that grades high schools on everything from academics to diversity. Brantley ranked No. 8.

Rankings are based on several factors: student and parent reviews of athletic programs; student participation in athletics; and the number of sports offered at the school. Rankings don’t factor in performance by individual teams, facilities or the number of athletes the programs send to the college level.

The Top 10, in order of ranking were: Bob Jones High School (Madison Co.); Hewitt-Trussville; Saraland High School; Oxford High School; Mountain Brook High School; Ft. Payne; Homewood; Brantley; Hoover; and Wetumpka.
