Our Community

Whether it is annual festivals, good southern food, historical museums, or a chance to canoe on the Mississippi, you can find it in Clarksdale. But the beauty of living and working in Coahoma County surpasses the normal attractions.

What stands out most to us are the people who live here who make this one of the most welcoming places in the country. Because we are so deeply rooted in this small community, we build connections with our scholars, families, and partners in everything we do from going to the grocery store to walking downtown. We have developed partnerships with diverse organizations across the county so we can work together to build the best possible tomorrow for Clarksdale and the Mississippi Delta as a whole.

We believe that our community and the people within it are our school’s greatest asset!
