Wesson Attendance Center is a small K-12 school that does a great job educating students. The school is not perfect, but the school’s leaders and teachers and parents work very hard to improve every year. I taught at Wesson for 18 years, and I sent my children to this school for many years. 100% of the employees at Wesson want what is best for the students, even if they have different methods of trying to provide whatever it takes to help the students succeed. Parents need to remember that no school is perfect. Whatever ills exist in the surrounding community will inevitably manifest themselves some way at any school, but parents who are involved and faculty members who care go a long way to make Wesson one of the best schools in the entire southwest part of Mississippi, and the successful graduates and high test scores support that claim.
