Rankin County School District Reviews

Overall, my experience at Northwest Rankin could have been better, but it wasn't awful. I had a lot of excellent teachers and a handful of not so good ones. I learned a lot about academics and life while attending school here since kindergarten. I made life long friends and two very special teachers I will never forget. I think the school definitely needs more funding and to put it into something useful to help students learn, adapt and grow more in school. They have improved tremendously over the years but there is always room for improvement. Go Cougars!

I currently go to a school in the Rankin County School District and I personally like it, the teachers are wonderful and very helpful. Some of the teachers are strict on everything, but there are a lot that will help you understand everything and then go on to the next thing. The teachers and staff do an amazing job at running things! Very pleased!
I love how connected everyone seems. It's very organized and planned out! I never really understood why classes had to last all day, but now that I've graduated and am in college, I actually still wonder the same thing. However, Rankin County School District makes those "all days" better.
