Even if this school is in the westside of Jackson and gets little money to fund extracurricular activities it proves it is the best school in JPS. Every year Provine does a great job in sports even without having a weight room or a field house for the football team. The team players love their school so much that the lift weights in the halls. Provine is the only JPS school with a robotic team.This travels around the world.Also it is one of two robotic teams in the stste of mississippi. Provine has one of the best bands that you will ever see or hear. Their plays show syle and core style music.
