\"Once a Tiger, Always a Tiger.\"

School Vision/Mission Statement

School Vision:
We aim to provide a safe learning environment with a welcoming atmosphere that creates a sense of belonging amongst the families. We maintain an inclusive environment that acknowledges and respects children from diverse families and cultural backgrounds. Our community strongly believes "Once a Tiger, Always a Tiger." 
District Mission:
The Lauderdale County School District's mission is to educate all students so they can become competent contributing members of society. The LCSD is committed to meeting the needs of all students we serve as we prepare them to be productive, contributing members of our community. In this pursuit, we know students must have a passion or a desire for something – whether it’s academics, sports, or the arts. This passion is the driving force that gives them one reason to come to school, and thus, they are more likely to experience success.
