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.
