Coahoma Agricultural High School is a historically black, public high school established in 1924. Coahoma County was among the first of the counties in Mississippi to provide an agricultural high school for Negroes. In 1924 county superintendent P. F. Williams proposed the organization of a school system which included a number of elementary and junior high schools and one central agricultural high school. Upon adoption of the proposal by the Board of Supervisors in that year, Coahoma County Agricultural High School was established. The junior college curriculum was added in 1949, and the name of the institution was changed to Coahoma Junior College and Agricultural High School. The system operated under the then-existing "separate but equal" doctrine of education until 1965 when the school opened its doors to all students, regardless of race, color, sex, national origin, or disability.
