About Whitfield County Schools

  • Sign at Whitfield County Schools Central Office We know every student is different. They live in different parts of the county. Some have brothers and sisters and others don’t. Academic and financial support varies from one home to the next. The staff members of Whitfield County Schools want to learn from students, parents, and stakeholders in the community. We strive to respond to their needs and provide a safe and supportive environment to challenge students with meaningful work.

    Our team of educators work together across grade levels, content areas, and among all of our 24 schools. We believe all of our employees are leaders and encourage them to learn from each other. This open dialogue helps each teacher design a portfolio of customized work that helps them teach students how they learn best.

    Then and now

    When the Whitfield County School System was established in 1872, its primary purpose was to educate children when they were not needed on the family farm. A lot has changed since then! We are now the 28th largest of Georgia’s 180 public school districts. More than 13,000 students attend 24 schools that include:

    • 13 elementary schools
    • 5 middle schools
    • 3 comprehensive high schools
    • 1 charter high school career academy
    • 1 special-purpose high school
    • 1 alternative school

    We believe the best way to learn about our schools is to see them in action. We encourage you to visit any of our schools for a firsthand experience of the teaching and learning happening in Whitfield County Schools.

Website Usage Guidelines
