Student-Led Transition Program

Our Cougar Ambassadors are dedicated to welcoming new students. They provide school tours, assist with locating classes, explain school procedures and answer questions.  The Cougar Ambassadors also check in with our new students periodically to help direct them to the resources they may need.

Military life can be very stressful.  In addition to the 3 school counselors on site at Northwest Rankin Middle School, Rankin County School District provides additional resources and supports.
