Poplarville is a small school that opens students to many opportunities. Like any school, they have great teachers and not so great teachers. Most of the teachers at Poplarville do care about the student's future, and they are trying to prepare them for life. However, some teachers are only interested in the state test scores they receive. I think Poplaville could use a few changes but it over all prepared me for college and I loved my time here!

My experience at Poplarville High School has been a great one. Our school is very supportive in our academics and our sporting events. One of my favorite experiences at this school are the football games, and the swelling pride throughout our student body as we cheer on fellow peers into victory! The overall attitude of this school is fantastic and I would definitely choose this school again.
I liked how the staff of this school will go out of their way to make sure that you understand the objectives that they are teaching. They also do all that they can to make sure every student graduates and has the opportunity to either a community college or a university. Something I would like to see change in this school is the amount of dropout students. Although the staff helps in many ways, many students still do not have the motivation needed to finish their high school career.
