Our mission is to offer a high quality education for all students and to prepare them to be successful adults. The vision of the North Panola School District is to be an “A” rated district with all “A” rated schools. Our core values serve as the foundation upon which we execute our mission. Here in the North Panola School District, those values include:


  • Leadership

  • Striving for innovation and excellence

  • Collaboration at all levels

  • A focus on success for all students

  • Family engagement

  • Dedication to continuous improvement and best practice

  • High quality instruction

  • Transparent governance  


We are committed to providing students a safe and caring learning environment, stellar instruction, access to cutting-edge technology, and relevant learning opportunities that will prepare them for success beyond high school in the 21st Century.  The North Panola School District values, respects, and supports our teachers because we believe the key to student learning is great teaching. To help inspire and engage students in their learning, we provide teachers ongoing useful professional development and technology tools to bolster their instruction for the purpose of advancing student learning to the highest levels.


While the North Panola School District has faced challenges in the past, it is our belief that we can be one of the top schools in the state of Mississippi. We value the privilege of working with children and young people who amaze us each day with their talents and genius and we welcome the support of a wonderful parent community.


Thank you for supporting us in the important work of educating our community’s children and young people. We sincerely appreciate your support and our community’s commitment to building “A” rated schools. Our students both need and deserve nothing less if they are to reach their potentials.

For Mississippi’s students, summer is a fun break from the classroom, but those weeks away from school can result in a loss of knowledge and reading ability. The Mississippi Summer Reading Challenge raises awareness of the summer loss epidemic, shares compelling research on the importance of personalized reading activities and provides access to a variety of free resources to support reading during the summer. 

The Lexile-based "Find a Book, Mississippi" tool offers students over 140,000 books from which to choose. This book-search tool enables individuals to build custom reading lists based on a Lexile range and personal interests and to check the availability of books at the local library.
