About Our School

Rankin opened its doors to students in the year 1929, now it is just one of the four third through fifth grade schools in the Tupelo Public School District paired to a sister kindergarten through second grade feeder school, Joyner Elementary.

Rankin continues its commitment to be partners with parents and the community to ensure that all children receive the best educational opportunities possible.

The mission of Rankin Elementary School is to encourage all students to apply critical and creative thinking skills, to demonstrate responsible behavior, and to be accepting of individual differences of peers. The faculty and staff at Rankin are committed to the achievement of academic excellence by students in the core areas of math and reading with an emphasis on application of knowledge.
