"A School With Four Walls...And Tomorrow Inside!"
Welcome to M. Agnes Jones Elementary School On-line!
 
THEME: "Pushing Forward, Moving Higher and Reaching Greatness" 

M. Agnes Jones Elementary School provides a learning environment that facilitates standards-based instruction connected to the world outside the classroom. We provide personalized educational experiences that strengthen the skills, talents, and self-esteem of each individual student. Daily, we demonstrate and reinforce the value and benefit of hard work and foster the belief that each child is capable of being a productive citizen. We recognize that students' needs vary according to background, ability, motivation, and values and that the emotional and physical environment should be conducive to learning. We operate from the premise that learning is a constant process and individuals learn from each of their experiences. We recognize that the school is not the sole influence in our students' education. We believe that education is the combined responsibility of the school, home and community.

    Atlanta Public Schools is appreciative of the leadership demonstrated by all of our principals, particularly those who have served the district for many years.  Like all school districts, APS conducts an annual assessment of where we are as a system, as well as a review of any revisions to state law. Necessary changes are made to ensure the district remains in compliance and that all of our students are prepared for the next level and long-term success. This process includes an intense and methodical performance review of all of our schools and their leadership teams. For the full statement, please click here.
