Our Mission

The mission of Memphis School of Excellence (MSE) is to provide a safe and collaborative environment which will cultivate the academic and social development of its students by emphasizing math, science, and technology for the purpose of students setting and meeting higher education goals. Graduates of MSE will have the tools necessary to positively impact their communities as they pursue their personal and professional aspirations. Memphis School of Excellence believes an effective and adequate education necessary for the citizens of the future relies heavily on a multidimensional academic curriculum in which all core subjects will be blended together through various teaching methods while promoting the development of a strong character that supports and respects society. We strongly believe that MSE’s mission statement and our outlined goals relate to the Memphis City Schools’ strategic plan which is based on student achievement, accountability, parent and community involvement, healthy youth development, safety and diversity.

Executive Director's Message

Dear MSE family,
We welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year with great pride and excitement. As we look forward to another year of learning, we are recommitting ourselves to the success of every student and hope that you will join us in making MSE the finest system it can be. We all have a role to play in building a successful school year – students, faculty, parents, and staff. Our handbook is intended to help us understand how we can contribute. MSE lays out our expectations for how we can all work together to give our students the best education possible. However, we can’t do it alone. We firmly believe that when students, faculty, staff, and parents are all working together, there is nothing we can’t achieve as a school system.

We ask our parents to review the entire school policies and procedures with their students and keep them as a reference during this school year. Parents or students with questions about the expectations should contact their Principal. Most of all, I hope you will find a way to grow more involved with your school and campus community.

On behalf of Memphis School of Excellence's faculty and staff members, we wish you all the best for a fantastic year.

Samuel Beyhan, Ed.D.
Executive Director
