About Us

Hattiesburg High School is exactly what you are looking for in a high school for your teen. In our classrooms you will find challenging instruction, highly qualified teachers, innovative teaching and leading technology. 

Our campus has 50+ teachers who have received their Master’s or higher degrees and are prepared to offer your child their best. We have 20+ Advanced Placement (AP) and Accelerated (ACC) classes, 13 Career and Technical Education (CTE) classes, 50+ elective classes, required core classes, and extracurricular activities (see the list to the right).
In fact, Hattiesburg High is leading the way with 21st century skills through our extensive use of modern technology. Our school is fully wireless, and all students are encouraged to use their personal technology to complete assignments.
Our students develop and grow within an environment that is safe and conducive to learning. With the commitment of all stakeholders – the parents, students, administrators, faculty, staff, and other community leaders, we are able to graduate productive citizens who will be contributing members of their community. The faculty and staff are so dedicated to the learning process that after school tutoring is offered on a daily basis.

The success of our school is based upon the development of the whole student. Therefore, students often excel in academics, arts, activities, and athletics. In 2014 HHS achieved numerous accolades: MHSAA Speech and Debate Champions, National Beta Club – National School of Distinction, National Forensic League – National School of Excellence, and Youth About Business Southeast Champions. The skills and knowledge gained through the experiences of high school will guide our students after high school – in college, their career and life.
