Tupelo high school is a great school that offers tons of extracurricular activities and has a great variety of class options. I love the teachers and the sporting events! I would, however, change the administration involvement and strictness.

I'm currently a senior at Tupelo High School, and I've been in this school district since kindergarten. Like all districts, there have been ups and downs, but I honestly have no major complaints. The policies are tolerable, the teachers are hospitable (most of the time), and there aren't any major complications. I have loved my time here, and every year has been better than the precedent. The schools have provided me with opportunities to figure out what I like and don't like. We have an excellent sports program in addition to an amazing arts program. The elementary schools are all run very well, and most of the people are friendly.
Overall the Tupelo Public School District offers a tradition of excellence, but the high school offers in depth learning and a multitude of classes. The teachers are known for preparing their students for college successfully, while also forming bonds that will last a lifetime.
