The Athens City School Board approved a plan to designate themed academies at the system’s four elementary schools. In the Fall of 2018, Athens Elementary will be designated as Computer Science Academy. Brookhill will focus on Fine Arts and Julian Newman will target Health and Medical. Beginning in fall 2017, SPARK Academy at Cowart Elementary will be a complete STEM academy for all students. A fourth theme, Environmental Studies, will remain open for future development should another K-3 school be built in Athens.
Athens Elementary School is excited to welcome our new principal Ms. Cindy Smith Davis. Ms. Davis began her career in Florence, serving as a teacher at Riverhill School and Harlan Elementary. She later became the principal of Riverhill, serving in that position for 12 years. Since 2009 she has served as the principal at Phil Campbell High School, assistant principal at Sparkman High and Principal at Moores Mill Intermediate. For the past two years she has served as the principal for the Collegiate American School in Dubai, UAE. The Athens Elementary family offers a warm welcome!
