This page is dedicated to preserving the history of the schools of Marion County, Mississippi. Please send the name, location, and brief history of the school to me and I will post it here.
Prine Springs School- submitted by John Ulmer
Prine Springs School, a one room structure that was located somewhere in the vicinity of geographical coordinates 31N22.0, 89W52.6, which is near or in present day Goss, about 3 miles from J. P. Ivy’s old property on the Pearl River. It was just south of an abandoned road bed that ran parallel to the current road, which still exists.
While Prine Springs may have been the typical one room school house of earlier days, it provided an unusually good education to its students. Joel Hitt (nicknamed Juddy) was the school master.  He must have been a very well qualified for this position because he later became head of the Department of Mathematics at Mississippi College in Clinton.
Goss School- submitted by John Ulmer
Goss School which was located on the site of the present day location of Goss Baptist Church.  Goss School hosted grades 1 – 8.  It was not your typical country school because it had 4 classrooms and a cafeteria.  The school burned down.
Established 1907, burnt down 1946.
