Hinds County School District


The Hinds County School District in Mississippi operates 9 schools, including 5 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, and 2 high schools, serving a predominantly African American student population with high rates of economic disadvantage.

Among the standout schools in the district, Carver Middle School stands out with the highest statewide ranking, earning a 4-star rating and boasting the district's highest test scores in math and science. Raymond Elementary School also impresses with the highest percentage of white students and the district's top English Language Arts scores. Meanwhile, Raymond High School benefits from the lowest student-teacher ratio among the high schools.

While the district's test scores generally lag behind state averages, the data reveals pockets of excellence, such as Carver Middle and Raymond Elementary, that could serve as models for improving academic performance across the district. However, the persistently high rates of economic disadvantage, as evidenced by the free/reduced lunch rates exceeding 96% at all schools, present significant challenges that the district must address to ensure equitable opportunities for all students.
