Weakley County Schools is home to 10 schools in Northwest Tennessee. Over 300 innovative educators in the towns of Dresden, Gleason, Greenfield, Martin and Sharon serve over 4,100 students in local community public schools. Our faculty to student ratio is 1 to 19.
Our mission is to provide an educational environment that will encourage students to achieve their full potential as they prepare for unique roles as contributing members of our complex and changing society. Parents, teachers, staff members, and administrators work cooperatively together to accomplish our mission.
We believe all children can learn, should begin school ready to learn, and continue to learn throughout their lives.
We believe all children benefit when the focus of the learning process is on student achievement with high expectations and parents, educators, and members of the community collaborate in the learning process.
We believe all children deserve highly qualified administrators, teachers, and support staff that use research-based practices and strategies that provide clear direction; and all children benefit when curriculum and instruction are properly aligned, research-based, and data-driven and technology is used to enhance the learning process.
We believe all children deserve a safe, positive, and physically comfortable school environment to promote learning and all children gain when mutual respect and integrity are displayed among students and members of the educational community as they engage in adequate and appropriate internal and external communication.
Come and enjoy the success of our communities, our schools, our students.
