MSMS is Coming to Tupelo!

MSMS is coming to Tupelo! Mr. Spike will be available to talk about all things MSMS. The meeting will be at the Lee-Itawamba County Public Library on Tuesday, August 11th from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.

Come learn why MSMS is regularly listed in the top one-percent of high schools in America. The Daily Beast has again ranked us as one of their top high schools, ranking MSMS #57 in the nation. The 105 graduates of the MSMS class of 2015 alone were offered more than $22 million in scholarships to universities and colleges all over the United States.

“The most remarkable thing about MSMS, is at the end of the day, it is a public school.” said MSMS Admissions Counselor Spike Harris. “We are home to students from every single background imaginable, all sharing a passion for learning. They want to be as successful as they possibly can, and MSMS is an opportunity to help them achieve that success.”

The student body of MSMS is made up of students from all corners of the Magnolia state. MSMS students spend their final two years of high school living, working, and playing with other bright and motivated high school students. Students interested in attending the school must apply during their sophomore year of high school. MSMS is currently accepting applications for the Class of 2018.
