All children can learn and learning is the chief priority of the school.


All children have choices and are responsible for the results of those choices.


Children’s self-esteem and achievements are directly related to positive relationships and mutual respect among and between parents, staff, students, and community.


Parents, teachers, and community members have tremendous responsibility in preparing our children to be successful and contributing citizens in our society.


A safe and physically comfortable environment promotes learning for our children.


Our children will apply knowledge gained by solving real life problems.




Success for Every Student as we Build Our Learners Dynamically by being respectful, being responsible, and being ready to learn.

Statham Elementary has an incredible history. The school is over 100 years old. In 1906 the first all brick school building was built. This was known as Statham High School. The cost to build the building was $8000.00. In 1909 the school had its first graduating class. The three members of its graduating class were all girls. In 1940 a project to build a gymnasium was started but was stopped because of World War II. The gym was finally completed in 1942. The last year Statham served as a high school was 1956.
