Opened in 1929, Morningside is in the Grady cluster of the Atlanta Public School System. Morningside feeds into Inman Middle School and Grady High School. Our school mascot is the dolphin. Morningside Elementary School is located in the Morningside community and currently serves the neighborhoods of Morningside, Lenox Park, Sherwood Forest, Piedmont Heights, and Ansley Park.
Our mission is to nurture the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical well-being of each student while holding them to the highest academic standards. We recognize the uniqueness of each child and provide flexibility in our instructional program to address individual learning styles and maximize student achievement. The vision of Morningside Elementary school is to develop high-performing, self-directed life-long learners and leaders who are successful and take responsibility for their own behavior and incorporate self-awareness for their personal impact on the community as a whole.
