    Hi I am a former student of North Pontotoc Middle School. This school is great. The teachers are nice. Of course. The principal is Great. Helps you with anything that she can. The teachers expecially my favorite Mrs. Larabee is Fantastic. I love her and the school. The other students are great to. Really nice and are not opposed to diffrent. Even though this school isnt brand new its not about the ag of the school. Its about the oppurtunities this school opens up fro your child. Hope this helps alot. Thanks/Love Shawna Andrew
