Students in grades nine through eleven will take part in ICAP on November 3 and November 4.  "ICAP is a multi-year process that intentionally guides students and families in the exploration of career, academic and postsecondary opportunities.

    Lender Luse

    Ms. Luse was one of the first African American students to attend Byhalia High before desegregation. She graduated from BHS in 1972.
    Afterwards, she received a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Rust College and a Masters of Science in Teaching (concentrating in Biology) from Jackson State University. Ms. Luse taught Biology for over 28 years with the bulk of her teaching experience being at Pearl High School and Jackson Public Schools. In 2005, she was selected Mississippi's Biology Outstanding Educator and Metro Jackson Outstanding Educator. Fortunately, Ms. Luse returned to Byhalia in order to give back to a community that had given so much to her. She stated, "The education I received at Byhalia High School prepared me for a very successful teaching career."
    We cannot thank Ms. Lender Luse enough for stepping into the role of teacher once more for the sake of our students at BHS.

We expect each student to make a commitment to learning.

We will work together to have a great school year.

The football field, baseball field, softball field, and track are located behind the main building on our campus.
