About Our School

The Menahga Public Schools consists of two schools under one roof. The building is a Pre K - 12 facility with the offices, classrooms, and other work areas. Many of our older students work as teacher's assistants and help the younger students creating a beneficial learning environment for all.

In an age of financial uncertainty, our district maintains a secure funding which allows us to keep classroom sizes small and maintain both core educational programs and extra curricular activities at little or no cost to our families.

Our school now houses a little over 900 students school wide within the two buildings. The buildings are connected making a unique community of students working with each other to achieve their academic goals.

Menahga focuses on the importance of educating our youth with a well-rounded curriculum to provide them with the life long skills needed in today's changing world and for their future. As society changes, we adjust our curriculum to meet the needs of students moving forward in their lives.
