North Bay Elementary

North Bay Elementary

North Bay Elementary is a public school in Biloxi, MS with a diverse population of over 700 students in kindergarten through fourth grade. As a Title I school with over 55% of our students receiving free/reduced lunch, our staff works diligently to differentiate instruction to meet the academic, social and emotional needs of all of our students. Through an unwavering commitment year after year to excellence from all and for all, we set high standards for academics and discipline. This is the school's second USDE National Blue Ribbon School recognition, as we first received the award in 2011.

We offer not only the core academic subjects to our students, but additional opportunities to excel in other areas such as art, music, computer science, physical education, publishing and broadcasting. At North Bay Elementary, each day starts with a morning television broadcast produced, directed and delivered by our students on WNBAY. Our staff and students come together each morning in their classrooms to make a commitment to our core values, as those are taught and modeled daily. At North Bay we truly live our vision and mission.
