The Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science, one of the top high schools in America, is a public, residential high school for academically gifted eleventh and twelfth grade students located on the campus of the Mississippi University for Women, Columbus, Mississippi. Our students come from all over the state of Mississippi and live and work and play together on our campus. They are students who choose to spend their last two years of high school (junior and senior years) living away from home and engaging in the kind of academic rigor not found at most high schools in America.
Our mission is to enhance the future of Mississippi in the global society by meeting the individual needs of gifted and talented students through providing innovative learning experiences and leadership development in a residential environment. In addition, we will provide quality educational leadership for other educators and aggressive outreach programs that impact students across Mississippi.
