• As a resident of Athens and the parent of two Golden Eagles, I welcome you to FAME Academy at Brookhill Elementary School and Athens City Schools. We pride ourselves on our academic success, empowering our students to be leaders of their own learning through innovation and discovery, and building student leaders that will impact our community in the future.

    The staff at FAME Academy takes pride in building everlasting relationships with our students that instill value, character, and impact lives every day. Every child at FAME Academy is “our child.” We pride ourselves in building partnerships with our parents and encourage our parents to be involved in their children’s education journey. I invite you to visit our school to observe a student-centered environment and the dedication our teachers put into our students every day. There is a place in our community that we refer to as “One Athens.”

    As a father of twin sons, I cherish the role of a parent and every child that walks into the doors at Brookhill. I will treat them as if they were my own daughter or son with love, dignity, and respect. The safety and security of your children are my top priority. I have an open-door policy to listen to anyone’s questions, concerns, suggestions, or ideas. Any situation that you are concerned with regarding your child is a concern of mine and will be addressed promptly as I would with my own children.

    It is an honor to work with your students and be a part of the FAME Academy Family and Athens City Schools.

    Jeff Mathheus, Ed.S.
