Let's do the math.

91,000 Students ÷ 129 Schools + 12 School Districts ÷ 6 Counties = 1 workforce in training. Future employers and employees are graduating every year from our local schools. They're enrolled in International Baccalaureate courses and Academic and Performing Arts Complex courses--all while learning a trade in various votech schools.

The results are enough to make any parent proud. The A-rated Clinton Public School District has maintained the best and most improved state testing scores in the state for several years. Meanwhile, the Jackson Public School District's Northwest Middle School has donned the honor of being named one of the 50 Best Middle Schools in the Nation.
