Welcome to EXCEL BY 5 Petal.
The city of Petal became Mississippi's first certified Excel By 5 early childhood community in 2006. Parents and educators, as well as city and business leaders joined together to achieve this designation as an "Early Childhood" community. We believe that investing in our youngest citizens will mean a brighter future for our city.
