MSMS Statistics

MSMS students come from every corner of the state of Mississippi. Each of our students is unique, but all are bound by the innate talents they each possess and an incredible will which drives them to meet the fruits of their potential. Our students are not only colleagues in the academic sense, but they very quickly become friends for life.

Since each student at MSMS is unique, it is impossible to encapsulate or expound upon the "typical MSMS student." At MSMS, we don't do "typical." Rather, we celebrate the individual and revel together in the accomplishments our friends make in striving for true excellence.

Below, you will find statistical information about our student body as well as a list of the universities our graduates from the past couple years are currently attending.
