History

North Delta School, Inc., was organized in May 1987 from a merger of West Panola Academy and North Delta School. The WPA Green Wave and NDS Eagles began their educational services in the mid to late 1960s to provide an alternative educational experience to the existing school systems. The synergistic effect of each school’s strengths, personality, and patronage has led to an organization which has achieved new heights in student performance and growth.
