QUITMAN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL - WHERE QUALITY EDUCATION STARTS
Quitman Elementary School opened its doors in 1992 as this county’s largest elementary school and still remains the largest elementary school in our system. There are currently 55 certified teachers on staff, two administrators, one technology specialist, a counselor, an academic coach, a nurse, and 12 classified paraprofessionals that work diligently each day with our students. Our janitorial team has six members and our cafeteria crew has ten team players. Our school serves a population of approximately 604 students, kindergarten through grade 5. We are a diverse community of learners with a wide range of backgrounds and income levels. Quitman Elementary is one of four Title One schools in our system. Over one hundred students receive additional tutoring and small group help through this program. Gifted and talented services, as well as special education services, are offered to all qualifying students. At QES students are engaged in enrichment and interventions, based upon their own individual formative data, in order to grow academically. Please view school as a priority, and see to it that your child attends every day except in cases of illness or emergency. Students learn by example; that is, if parents value education and educational routines, their child may very well do the same.
ALL Schools in this district participate in CEP (Community Eligibility Provision). This Means that All students in the Brooks County Schools eat at no cost.
