A Message from Our Principal 

Mr. Josh Weatherly 


We are a Schoolwide Title 1 school! 

Our students are the best at GES!  We are so proud of the incredible progress that our students continue to make in all areas.  We have a high standard for our students and we continue to raise the bar on a yearly basis.  We have found that if we continue to raise the bar for our students that they continue to meet and even surpass their goals.  Currently on our state assessments (reading and math categories) we are above the national average in 7 of 8 categories.  Teachers in grades K-2 do an excellent job in laying a solid foundation for our students tested in grades 3-6.  Teachers in grade 3-6 do a great job taking the students to a new level of excellence.

In addition to our high standard of academics, we also strive to produce leaders of tomorrow.  We teach our students habits that will help them to be successful when they leave for the high school.   We have an assembly once a year to show our community leaders the leadership skills the students have learned. 

All in all, we have wonderful students, teachers, and staff at GES!  Please call me at (205) 468-3433 or email me jweatherly.ges@mcbe.net if I can be assistance to you.

God Bless,

Mr. Josh Weatherly
