  • Corinth School District Schools

    The Corinth School District is composed of three schools and around 2,700 students. Corinth Elementary School services pre kindergarten through fourth grade with around 1,275 students. Corinth Middle School services fifth through eighth grades with around 765 students, and Corinth High School services ninth through twelfth grades with just over 600 students. The district has over 63% of the student population that are eligible for free and reduced meals. The demographic breakdown of students is a bit different that the city data as well. The demographics of the schools are 58.4% White, 30.7% African American, 9.6% Hispanic, 1% Asian, and the remaining 0.3% is made up of American Indian and Pacific Islander. There is a trend with an increase in the number of Hispanic students we are servicing now at all levels. The increase in the Hispanic population is forcing the district to provide services to make sure we are meeting the needs of our English Language Learner (ELL) population. At the elementary they are well over 12% with the Hispanic population, so the district must make adjustments to make sure these students are serviced appropriately.

    The Corinth School District’s population is one that is extremely transient due to the location of the school. As parents move into various housing options, they might move out of our district into a neighboring school. There is a great deal of student movement between the Corinth School District and the Alcorn County School District. We also have a large number of students that are transient back and forth from Tennessee as well due to our location. We are also seeing a large increase in the number of our students that are in need of mental health support therapists due to various reasons.

    The Corinth School District being on a different calendar than any of the other districts in our area, it makes it difficult for students transferring in at various times. The current calendar allows for remediation to be completed in a timely manner. There are breaks at the end of each nine weeks to provide remediation and enrichment for the students that need the additional support. The Corinth School District also implements a different curriculum that is more rigorous than the current Mississippi curriculum. Corinth utilizes the Cambridge International Examination Curriculum that is an internationally based curriculum that requires higher levels of reading comprehension to be successful on all of the examinations. These innovations must be taken into account for prospective families that come into community and as a district, we must be aware and willing to provide the supports needed that make it where all students can be successful.
