Welcome

As a prospective parent of Jones County Schools, we would like to welcome you to our Web site. We pride ourselves in making sure that student achievement is first and foremost. Every one of the eight schools in our district is a firm believer in our motto, Success For All. Please take time to look through our website. If there is anything lacking, please feel free to contact us. 
 

The Jones County School district is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and the Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI).

Jones County School System's vision was developed through involvement of all stakeholders committed to the district's mission to graduate students with the necessary tools of empowerment for confident, self-directed, life-long learning. Communicated among and highly regarded by all stakeholders, the vision, mission, and beliefs are visible, as well as understood to provide the direction and purpose of the school district.

 
The district engages in an on-going and highly collaborative process of continuous improvement driven by the established vision, mission, and beliefs. Strategic goals and actionable objectives have been developed and are supported by the district's balanced score card (BSC) and continuous improvement plan (CIP). Internal and external stakeholders are involved in a systematic process for the development and monitoring of district goals in order to ensure collaboration and a collective focus on student achievement and success.
  In today's fast-paced and bustling society, it may seem impossible to find a place that offers both tranquility and excitement within the same area. Jones County, in Middle Georgia, is such a place, offering businesses, families, and retirees an endearing and affordable lifestyle. If safe streets, green space, rambling river, abundant wildlife, excellent schools, and down-home folks are important to you, then Jones County can offer you a place you will be proud to call home. The quality of the country air, the warmth of neighbors, and the proud county-wide history found here are sometimes hard to find close enough to urban areas for convenience. However, Jones County is conveniently located within one hour of Atlanta, 15 minutes from Macon, 20 minutes from Milledgeville, and it is within three hours of the coast, the mountains, or the swamplands.

The Jones County School System is proud of the professional credentials of its teaching staff and will furnish to you, upon request, the professional qualifications of any of your child's classroom teachers.
