Welcome to the 2017-2018 Academic School Year!  I am thrilled to once again lead the academic charge for the Mighty Dragons.  Much to your credit of the staff, students, and community, last year we saw a lot of instructional improvements and an increase in the school’s culture.  I believe we will be eager and energized for the start of a new year and we look forward to passing that energy on to our wonderful students on a daily basis.  M.S. Palmer continues to be a school built on 4 roots that are aligned with the Quitman County School District’s Strategic Vision and Goals:

  • Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships
  • Cultural Proficiency
  • Professional Learning Communities
  • State of the Art Technology

We will continue to work hard to ensure every child will enjoy a successful, exciting experience here at Madison S. Palmer High School.  Our continued goal, as always, is to create a positive school climate that maximizes instructional time for student learning, while developing strong physical, social, and emotional characteristics in a safe environment.

As, the 2017-2018 school year progresses, I look forward to working with you to make this a successful and productive year.  It is a privilege and honor to be a part of a family that takes opportunity to improve the lives of children daily.  I am excited as we travel together on this educational journey towards excellence.





Walter L. Atkins, Jr.

Madison S. Palmer, Principal
