Open Quote This is a great school that prepares students for college and careers by engaging them in learning. As a former student, I can say that I would not send my children anywhere else! Close Quote

Open Quote If this were not a great school staffed by teachers who truly care about kids, we wouldn't have the number of visitors from other school districts coming from distant places to see what we're doing right. One walk through the halls reveals the positive learning environment. Hall bulletin boards display student work outside almost every classroom. Peek through the window in any classroom door and you'll see students engaged in meaningful learning activities. Curriculum is Common Core and very challenging, and extra help is provided for students who need it. Parents are interested and involved. You can't do better than to send your child to a school like BVMS where building caring relationships with students and their parents is such a vital part of what we do. Come see us! Close Quote

Open Quote My son attended Bayou View Middle School after I took him from the Biloxi School System to come over here to school because I felt his needs were not being met. My son is dyslexic and AD/HD, and the Biloxi School System was so rigid in the programing they offered and the way they handled his issues in the classroom, I felt he would have his needs met better in the GSD. He has gone on in his educational career and been quite successful, and I feel that this is due in great part to GSD and the great teachers beginning in the middle school. The teachers at this school are top drawer; you can't find any better! Close Quote

Open Quote The Gulfport schools have been blazing the trail for the state of MS by being the only school district in the state to fully implement the Common Core State Standards on behalf of the state department of ed. The teachers have received statewide and local notoriety for their efforts. Two members of the instructional department were selected to serve on the state's national PARCC team. Our district is progressive; for example, all 9th-10th grade students have been provided en e-reader to lighten the load of the book bags. Other technological advances are being made available to our teachers, students, and principals. All core classes have interactive whiteboards. We have redesigned our high school to give students career-based opportunities and early college experience during their junior and senior years. The arts are important to developing a well-rounded student. Our music programs (band, choir, and strings) are among the best in the country and world! How do I know? We continue to win sweepstakes awards each year and have been invited to Disney and Germany to showcase our talents! Athletics? We are the home of state champions in soccer, basketball, and weight lifting. Our Marine ROTC teaches leadership and continues to win state and regional competitions as well. We hold ourselves and our students to high levels of excellence. Gulfport is a great education destination!

SN: Those of us who work for the district may bring our children with us if we live out of district. I'm proud to say, we chose GSD. Best decision we could have made. My children's feeder pattern: West-Gulfport Central Middle-Gulfport High led my sons to honors programs and academic scholarships. This school is no exception! High standards coupled with hard work leads to a successful child. Close Quote

Open Quote In 2011, the Mississippi Department of Education selected the Gulfport School District as one of three school districts to participate in a pilot program called Excellence for All. As part of this program, selected school districts were given the opportunity to develop innovative programs for their students that would prepare them to compete on a national and global setting in the core subjects as well as improve students' career and college readiness. Due to a major shift from Mississippi Curriculum Standards to Common Core State Standards, the data on this site does not reflect this shift. Please see the Gulfport School District's website to see actual testing information for the Gulfport School District. (You may also sign up to follow us on Twitter.)

A highly functional school district, the District's selection as a pilot program represents the progressive and passionate commitment to be internationally competitive as the community and district work to meet the mission of the Gulfport School District.

The mission of the Gulfport School District is to inspire each student to become a problem solver, lifelong learner, and productive member of society. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
