Georgetown Elementary School (GES) is a K-5 based school that promotes teamwork and helping students focus on learning. The mission, vision , and values of Georgetown Elementary School align with that of the Muscogee County School District. We are committed to inspiring and equipping all of our students to achieve unlimited potential and to aggressively teach, empower, and motivate our students by providing a nurturing learning environment through varied learning experiences. We work hard towards instilling respect for self, others, our school, and the community. This is done by communicating high expectations for all, including not only our students, but our faculty and staff as well, and by encouraging our students to become lifelong achievers. Here at Georgetown, we strive to be a beacon of light for every student, every day, so that our students can perform on or above grade level in all core academic subjects. The staff of GES uses data to drive our instruction in an effort to provide learning experiences that meet the needs of all students. The faculty and staff of GES maximizes and organizes instructional time to efficiently maximize the learning experience. GES instructors work collaboratively to align the curriculum and to offer educational experiences that are characteristic of the 21st Century Classroom. Our faculty and staff also develop instructional strategies that are interactive, hands-on, and engaging and that challenges our students. We provide a rigorous curriculum that aids in the development of critical thinking skills and that teaches students to become effective problem-solvers.
