Welcome to the New Albany School District. New Albany School District is consistently ranked one of the top school districts in Mississippi. We have a strong track record of academic success and growth. We are proud to share with you our accomplishments and the value we bring to the New Albany community.

New Albany School District embraces the idea that a great educational system is the cornerstone of a thriving community. This is one of the primary reasons families live in and businesses locate in the city of New Albany. It is paramount that our community, businesses, industry, and schools work collaboratively to ensure all of our students have access to high quality programs. This will ensure our students are prepared for what the future holds for each and every stakeholder.

The New Albany community and the New Albany School District understands that academic achievement begins with a high quality teacher in the classroom.  Over half of our teachers have at a minimum a master’s degree and many more hold national board certifications.

We believe that success in schools goes beyond test scores, which is why we work closely with our staff and parents to provide an environment that is centered on the individual needs of every student. Strong schools and strong community go hand in hand. In New Albany, we all share a common goal of a high quality education, efficient operations, and a strong community. We look forward to this journey together as we continually seek to prepare our students to be the successful leaders of tomorrow.
