MSMS to Host a Public Open House

MSMS will be hosting a public open house next Tuesday, Sept. 22nd. We want everyone to come see why we are consistently ranked one of the best high schools not only in the south, but the nation. 

Many of you may know who we are but have never visited our school. We want you to see first-hand our campus, from our academic buildings to our resident halls. There is something special about meeting the students, faculty, and staff members that make up the MSMS community. 

Our students come from all over the state of Mississippi and live and work and play together on our campus. They are students who choose to spend their last two years of high school (junior and senior years) living away from home and engaging in the kind of academic rigor not found at most high schools in America. Our students are those who are passionate about their futures, sincere in their efforts to be successful, and talented enough to be capable of extraordinary things. 

Registration for our public open house will begin at 1:00 p.m., followed by a general session starting at 1:30 p.m. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions as well as time for you to tour the campus with some of our students. 

We are located on the campus of the Mississippi University for Women (MUW), located at 1100 College Street in Columbus. When you get to the front gate of MUW, let the guard know you are here to attend the MSMS Open House. They will guide you to our school.
