• About Pope


         Pope School, located off Highway 51, serves grades PreK-8 in the southern portion of Panola County.


         The mission of Pope School is to build a strong community of students, parents, faculty, staff and community members who will work together with mutual trust and respect to create a safe, positive and supportive learning environment. We will provide a strong educational foundation by nurturing, guiding and challenging all of our students to develop a love of learning, and a sense of pride in their achievements.
