Mission Statement

The mission of the Hart County School System is to prepare all individuals to meet tomorrow's challenges by providing quality educational opportunities today. 


Schools provide safe, secure, and nurturing environments for all. People believe about themselves what others believe about them. Each individual is valued and treated with respect. Each individual has the right to be educated and the responsibility to learn. Quality education requires partnership which is the responsibility of the school system, the students, the parents, and the community.

Soup with Santa

On December 9th, Hartwell Elementary School held its 1st annual "Soup with Santa" family night. Over 500 parents and students showed up for the free event held by the school's PTO. Staff PTO representative Robin Pittman says, "It was nice to see all the students come together with their families to spend time at a school event." Principal, Dr. Veronica Johnson, added that building student-school-parent relationships is a huge part of the success we've seen at HES in recent years.
