Rankin County School District Reviews
I have been in the Rankin County School District (RCSD) ever since kindergarten, that is 13 wonderful years! RCSD has treated my family and I nothing short of amazing. I have two older sisters who have also attended RCSD, and they can both attest to this. I attend Pelahatchie Attendance Center, and the school board and the staff and faculty are always so opened to helping any and everyone. The students are, I would say, all unique and I believe that is what makes the school district the best! I would, by far, recommend this school to anyone who is looking for a dependable district to join!
I have been in the Rankin County School District (RCSD) since kindergarten. I've had an excellent experience with RCSD. Every year our school district improves the rules, expectations and quality. Our academics are amazing! We are offered numerous DC and AP classes, which looks amazing on transcripts! The one thing I would change about RCSD is our dress code. As you know the South is extremely hot and humid, but we are expected to wear jeans and non-shoulder showing shirts. I want a dress code, just one thats more understanding of Mississippi weather.
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!
