I love that the South Tippah School district is committed to providing an excellent education to every student. And that it allows community involvement as well. I believe school and parents working together is what it takes for a student to succeed and that's what we have here in The South Tippah School district. Whether it's academically or in sports the students here in The South Tippah School district are encouraged,supported, and given every opportunity to excel.
I liked the faculty at my particular school although I wish the rules set out in the hand book would’ve been more closely followed by each school than by each school taking free reign on which rules to follow.
