LearnBoost welcomes Munford High School
Munford High School is noted in West Tennessee for its diverse academic offerings, high quality teachers, and its commitment to athletics and the arts, most notably its band program, regarded by some to be one of the best in Tennessee. The test scores show the school to be about the state average if not above average in some areas such as math. Munford High School's English and EOC Gateway exams were the highest in the state for the 2005-2006 school year and its 2009 State Writing Assessment scores were in the 99th percentile. The principal as of 2010 is Darry Marshall. The assistant principals are Dr. Sharon Ivie, Dr. Courtney Fee, Steve McCullough, and James Walker.
The school's location since 1983 is 1080 McLaughlin Drive. Previously, it was located on the current site of the Munford City Hall. Its mascot is the Cougar, adopted in 1983. Previous mascots were the Black Cat and the Tiger. The yearbook at one time was called the Conqueror, at least from 1947 to 1957, but is no longer published under that name. The school graduated its first class in 1930.
The school offers several academic courses, with many options in agriculture, health sciences, and industrial arts/vocational tech courses. A small number of AP courses are offered. A Dual Enrollment program with Dyersburg State Community College is also an option for some core classes, including English and History. A number of visual arts courses are offered, but few other arts courses are part of the curriculum.
The school receives most recognition for its band program, established in 1946. The band has won eleven University of Memphis Bandmaster's Championships since 1995. In 2007 the band was named USSBA State Champions, and placed 3rd in their class at the USSBA National Championships in Baltimore, MD. In 2009, the band returned to the USSBA National Championship, placing 2nd overall, as well as receiving Highest Visual Score, Highest Percussion Score, and the United States Marine Corps "Esprit de Corps" award. Barry Trobaugh is the Director of Bands and Gary Fite (MHS c/o 86) and Peter Colin, Jr. (MHS c/o 05) are the assistant directors. The school is also known for its baseball team, which was the 1991 state champions with a 29-1 record  and perennially performs well in the regular season and postseason. The football team has made it to the state championships and was previously coached by former Kansas coach and Houston Nutt's replacement as head coach for Murray State Mike Mahoney. Other noted and acclaimed activities include FFA chapter, girl's volleyball team, and Academic Knowledge Team, which have been recognized for outstanding achievements in recent years. The school also offers basketball, soccer, softball, track, HOSA, BPA, DECA, FCCLA, National Honors Society, SADD, Key Club, choirs, theatre arts, and other activities.
