Putting Kids First Since 1910

Putting Kids First Since 1910

Woolmarket Elementary School began as Woolmarket Vocational High School in 1910 and was the first school consolidated of its kind in the state of Mississippi. In the many years since some buildings have been added or taken away and the focus group adjusted but the mission of the school has been the same.

The Woolmarket community is tucked away between much larger schools and two of the largest cities in Mississippi: Gulfport and Biloxi. The community is also very diverse but primarily of a more rural, blue collar and working-class variety. The diversity comes in socio-economic and racial/ethnic categories. There has been a recent influx of English learners into the community which the school embraced and rose to push to growth in every area. Woolmarket Elementary School has been a uniting agent in a diverse community over all these years by catering to the educational needs of the community and is valued as such by its stakeholders. This will continue to be the mission of Woolmarket Elementary as it moves further into its second century of serving its grateful community.
