Being a senior attending Alcorn Central High School, I am very involved. Having a good environment is important to me, and that is provided at my school. The staff, academics, and clubs are my favorite! I think the food could be a little better. I highly recommend my school to any student looking for a great place to be fed good experience and excellent education.

Alcorn Central High School is an excellent school focused on the overall success of students. The teachers and administrative staff is very welcoming. Through my past two years as a student, I have noticed that they really care about the students as individuals, instead of test scores. The academics are suitable for any level of education necessary. The school offers challenging courses, dual-enrollment/dual-credit college classes, and plenty other opportunities to grow academically. There are several clubs and organizations that help shape the lives of future leaders. These include FBLA, FFA, FCCLA, FCA, Beta, SGA, Math Club, Academic Team, Drama Club, Yearbook, etc. ACHS has an "A" rating from the Mississippi Department of Education and has been recognized by REACH and USM for the positive and welcoming school environment. This is a really great place to go to school.
I have been going to Alcorn Central since 1st grade and overall I have had the best time. Bullying is never really a problem, the teachers know what they're teaching, and the students are overall nice. I've always had good grades and never really had trouble at this school. The principles, teachers, and faculty are always encouraging and do their best to make sure that we have the best school year possible. Everyone is so loving and honestly this is the best school and im so glad i get to graduate from here.
