Neshoba Central Elementary is a great school system. I moved to Neshoba County just so my daughter could get a decent education. I haven't regret it yet. The teachers are so concerned. I get weekly grade and conduct report. I have not encounterd anyone whom may seen unconcerned. I think God for making it possible for my daugther to attend Neshoba Central Elementary. I feel , her 4th grade teachers Miss. Nick, Mrs. Barrett, and Mrs. McKinney are the best. I really appreciate them. And may God continue to bless the school. Thanks for all you do.
