Welcome to Ripley Elementary School!

The mission of the South Tippah School District is to properly and safely educate all students within the school system so that all students can be successful at their next level of endeavor.

Principal's Message

The staff at Ripley Elementary School welcomes you and your family to the 2017-2018 school year.  We are committed to doing all we can to make this school year a successful experience for every student.  We firmly believe that a home/school partnership is necessary for the success of all of our students.  Learning is not an easy process!  It involves sharing ideas, making mistakes, and attempting new experiences.  Learning involves hard work by everyone, the teacher, the parent, the principal, but most importantly the student.

I look forward to partnering with you to make this an exciting and successful year for our students.  Thank you in advance for your support and commitment.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at (662) 837-7203 or


Ruby Bennett, Principal
