    I used to attend this school about 5 years ago... and It was a really great school. I had the best teachers. I had great communication with them. The great thing about these teacher at Mississippi is they never give up you. They're always offering help.Including when they see their students in not a good mood their sad or something bugging them they are always their to listen. These teacher really love their job and their students.

    I cannot pull together words to describe what this school did for my individual development. My sister and I both went there for k-6 and have the fondest memories. Pairing amazing teachers with the encouragement to try grow creatively I was empowered to become the well rounded person I am today. I left there to be successful in my following academic ventures now in grad school and making 65K+ at the age of 25! Thank you for giving me the jump-start I needed to be a success!

    I attended this school twenty-something years ago. I do attribute some of my strengths to this school and the teachers I was fortunate enough to have. I had to move schools just before middle school and realized that other children my age had not had such an enriching experience in grade school; a time that I think matters a lot in development. We had formal dance class drama class art class amazing music lessons and great team building extra-curricular activities. Diversity and open-mindedness was a huge theme throughout my time there. I would happily send my children there if I hadn't moved out of state. If you are considering this school please take some time to get to know the faculty and see for yourself how the students are eager to participate. I loved this school I hope you will too!
