Amanda Elzy High School was named in 1959 in honor of Amanda Elzy, a pioneering black educator. It was a part of the Leflore County School District until that district's merger into Greenwood-Leflore Consolidated School District on July 1, 2019. It is one of 3 high schools in the Greenwood-Leflore Consolidated School District and is situated in East Leflore County off Highway 82 in a rural community. Amanda Elzy currently services approximately 400 students from the rural areas of Greenwood including the towns of Sidon, Money, Slaughter, and Minter City.
Even in the midst of the COVID 19 pandemic, signs are pointing to another incredible and productive school year. Our skilled and devoted staff is already planning and preparing for your child(ren). Our enthusiastic office team is registering new families, ordering needed materials, and updating student files. Our hard working and conscientious custodians have spent the entire summer thoroughly cleaning the facility. We are indeed a joyous and caring community with the common goals of nurturing responsible, caring students and promoting high-level learning.
