Oglethorpe County Superintendent of Schools
Message from the Superintendent
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year in Oglethorpe County Schools. As a former teacher, assistant principal and principal in this district, I am fortunate to be part of a professional learning community that strives to promote excellence for every student, every day! We work each day to offer our full support to students, staff, parents, families, and other stakeholders that make up the Patriot community! Our common goal is to graduate every student with strong principles and prepared for college, career and a successful life. In partnership with our community and families, the Oglethorpe County School System provides excellence for ALL to achieve their full potential.
The Oglethorpe County School System educates over 2,100 students in grades Pre K-12 and employs about 350 people, making the school system the largest employer in the district. The district has one high school (grades 9-12), one middle school (grades 6-8), one elementary school (grades 3-5), and a primary school (grades k-2). A close working relationship between teachers and parents is necessary for this to be accomplished.
The Oglethorpe County Board of Education, administrative team, faculty, and support staff work tirelessly to promote student learning in the classroom and through our extra-curricular activities. However, we recognize that we cannot do it alone, so we rely on our families and friends in the community and beyond to help us in this endeavor. As such, we seek to promote an atmosphere of collaboration, open and honest communication, hard work, and extreme dedication to our mission. We welcome you to join us!
If you have any questions about our schools, I invite you to contact our primary, elementary, middle, and high school offices. Do not hesitate to call or email us. Our staff and I look forward to serving you!
