Biloxi Public Schools

Located on the Mississippi Gulf Coast in historic Biloxi and serving a mobile and ethnically diverse student population, Biloxi Public Schools currently holds the highest accreditation rating awarded by the state, 5.0. A low pupil-teacher ratio coupled with excellent community support and quality instruction, accounts for student test scores at or above the national average in all grades assessed by the state of Mississippi.

A new Biloxi High School opened in August, 2002, and two new elementary schools (Nichols and Gorenflo) opened in 2004. North Bay Elementary School opened in the fall of 2001; the remaining elementary schools were renovated extensively in the past few years.

The district’s three junior high schools were consolidated for school year 2002-03, to maximize educational and extracurricular opportunities for students. All seventh grade students attend Michel 7th Grade School; students in grades 8 and 9 attend Biloxi Junior High School.

Students at Biloxi High School are offered over 100 courses annually in the areas of technology, fine arts, business, foreign languages, Advanced Placement (AP) and traditional college preparatory classes. Numerous sports are available to those students who thrive on competition from swimming to golf to football.
