The students and teachers of Laurel Magnet School of the Arts took to the streets to celebrate their recent designation as an A-rated school. Led by the Laurel High School Marching Band and LMSA Principal Dr. Kiana Pendleton, the students paraded around school in celebration of their accomplishment. Laurel Magnet School of the Arts has been a Mississippi Arts Commission Whole Schools Initiative school since 1999, a Model School for the Arts since 2003 and is one of only two Exemplar Model schools in the state. This initiative expands regular classroom instruction to include visual and performing arts as a creative and engaging learning tool across the entire curriculum.
