Welcome To The Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science
MSMS is the state of Mississippi's only public, residential high school specifically designed to meet the needs of the Magnolia State's most academically gifted students. Each year, MSMS graduates are offered millions of dollars in scholarships - the Class of 2015 alone was offered more than $22 million.

MSMS is pleased to announce that this summer we will be offering special workshops specifically for science teachers. The workshops will focus upon creating engaging and cost-effective labs that teachers can take back to their classrooms. MSMS is home to some of the most innovative and experienced science faculty in the country, and we are pleased to offer this professional development opportunity to the state's amazing professional science educators.

Did you know there are other schools like MSMS all over America? MSMS is a member of the National Consortium of Specialized STEM Schools (NCSSS) as are the North Carolina School for Science and Mathematics (NCSSM). In mid-April, a group of students from NCSSM paid a visit to MSMS. During their time on the school's campus a forum was held between MSMS and NCSSM students. Take a look at the forum here and discover what makes NCSSS schools so very special!
