Parrish High School is a secondary school in the Walker County School System which is located in Parrish.

The school first opened on the site of the present Parrish Elementary School in 1925. It moved in 1935 to a new site on the hill to the west of the elementary school. That building was destroyed by fire in 1979 and a new Parrish High School was built just at the intersection of Alabama State Highway 269 and Coal Creek Road. Harland-Nelson Stadium was added to the campus some years later.

The Parrish High School Tornadoes football team won the AHSAA Class 1A State Championship in 2003.
