Superintendent

Welcome to the Mississippi School for the Blind (MSB) where we offer students with visual impairments and blindness an education that is differentiated for their unique learning needs.  The MSB campus offers an environment that fosters both the academic and social development of students. Even though our school is relatively small, our students have many educational opportunities inside and outside of the classroom. 

MSB has been an integral part of the blind and visually impaired community since 1848. We are blessed with the support that our parents, alumni, and community members provide, which helps our students thrive and is critical to our success.  In fact, some of our staff were once students at MSB and have returned to help prepare another generation of students.  But it is not only our teachers who help educate our students.  Our entire staff, whether in the residential setting, in the cafeteria, or on the bus, share the same desire to see each child succeed.

The best teachers and support staff are only a part of what is needed in a child's education. We need parents to be involved in their child's education. Raising and educating children is no easy task; but, by working together we can accomplish much more for the blind and visually impaired students in Mississippi.

If you know of a student who could benefit from the educational programs at MSB, we encourage you to contact us and schedule an appointment to come tour our campus and visit with us. 

Sincerely,

Jo Ann Malone, Superintendent
