Our School

We are a proud, small school of just over 300 fourth and fifth graders, allowing us to focus on the curricular and educational needs of a small demographic. We boast a “Star School” status from the Mississippi Department of Education, and we regularly meet yearly growth goals. It is because of the community-based relationship we have with our students and their families that we continue to see excellence in our students’ behavior and educational results.
