Allegany High School is the oldest high school still inoperation. In 1926, the building was completed. "Camp Hill", the site of the present day Allegany, was a federal army camp during the Civil War.
Allegany High School, with an enrollment of approximately 800 students, focuses on student achievement and success in all areas of education through a combined effort of students, faculty, staff, home, and community. The class of 2008 marked an important milestone for Allegany: the students were the 120th class to graduate from the long-standing institution.
