  • Zora Ellis Jr High School is a part of Talladega City, not Talladega County. It houses students in grades 7th and 8th. The school challenges students acdemically and encourages them to participate in a wide variety of school related and community activities. The staff and leadership are great. It might not be a newly built school, but new learning approaches are used to get students learning
