School would be so much better if they had a superintendent who actually cared about the children and not so much about his paycheck.

I really do enjoy sending my child to Natchez High School! My child gets great academic programs,a lot of different extracurricular activities to choose from,and the security knowing that parents will always be at the school to help out when needed!

The rating system does not provide a realistic view of the educational options in Adams County. Natchez High represents the best educational opportunity in Adams County - period. The facilities are far superior to anything available in the area and the faculty is as good or better than those in private schools in the county. The difference in individual student performance is parental involvement, regardless of the school. An excellent education is available through the Natchez School system. Anyone who would say otherwise has probably not tried it.

I think that Natchez High School needs to improve especially on it principal quality and the way he handles situations that go on at the high school. We students should not be treated as prisoners but as individuals who are at school to not only learn but have fun and enjoy our youth in school as well as out.

About the tests


Until 2011-2012, terminating in 2012-2013, Mississippi used the Mississippi Writing Assessment Program (MWAP) to test students in grades 4, 7 and 10 in writing. The MWAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Mississippi. The goal is for all students to score at or above 2 on the test.
