Welcome to Rankin Elementary School! Rankin exemplifies the tradition of excellence consistent within the Tupelo Public School District having served our community successfully for more than 60 years. The efforts of our faculty members, students, and educational partners have been nationally recognized. In 2001 and 2009 the United States Department of Educational presented Rankin Elementary with the prestigious National Blue Ribbon School Award. We pride ourselves on being in partnership with the Mississippi Arts Commission and serving as an Arts in the Classroom school where we integrate the arts through the curriculum. Consistent with the mission of the Tupelo Public School District, Rankin Elementary serves the community by engaging each student in an excellent education that develops skills and citizenship needed for success in a global society. It is my personal belief school should be a safe haven for children to learn and grow socially and behaviorally, as well as academically.
Celebrating small accomplishments nurture confidence and build excitement within learners as they progress.
Meeting students’ individual needs help us ensure success for all.
Parental involvement is vital as we foster the relationship between school and home. When parents and schools work together with common goals, greater success is guaranteed for any child. Please know you are welcome at Rankin Elementary and your input and
suggestions are valued. I am extremely excited to welcome you to Rankin Elementary and am honored to serve alongside you.
