At AEHS, is filled with amazement and educational experience. We have pep rallies for our football players to show them and let them know we have there back. We have cheerleaders, a marching band, and a dance team. That shows that no child will be disobedience in any way to no one.

Amanda Elzy High School is physically motivated, but mentally inclined. Every year books are shared, lunch is horrifying, and pettiness is stirred. I like that Elzy has emotionally stable students, but I dislike he support that we receive from not only the district but the staff! If I could change one thing I would change the administration!
Being a student here at Amanda Elzy High is challenging. Not very good support from grown ups, and even your peers. You have to push yourself and really teach yourself to be better in life. You have to have a certain mindset to be at this school. This school is really at the bottom of the boat in Mississippi. But you can still succeed here with a positive mindset to do so. I love my school and I’ll forever will.
