The school is a great school. People would not know just by looking at sites, such as this. If I am not mistaken the scores were higher in Math and Reading. All of this is about politics and economics. I do believe this site needs to do fact checks. This school needs improvement, but I quite sure all schools in Mississippi can stand a little improvement.
