Our schools embrace this attitude and provide excellent educational opportunities for all our students.

The mission of the Alcorn School District is to promote a life-long love of learning that enables students to master the skills necessary for success in a rapidly changing, technical world. Progress toward accomplishing our mission can be observed by the national, state, and local recognition our students and schools receive.
