At B.H. Macon Elementary School, our mission is to value the individual child, to promote self-esteem, and to provide an education of excellence in a safe and nurturing environment.
Over the past four years, B.H. Macon has implemented many innovative programs and research-based instructional practices, placing student academic performance on an upward trend. We pride ourselves on challenging students to perform to their utmost potential.
The school staff connects with parents and the community to ensure student success. Parents are valued partners and are encouraged to participate in school activities. Our staff hosts support workshops for parents on subjects from health to homework. Other parent involvement opportunities include assisting in classrooms, participating in PTA, and serving on the Site-Based Decision Making and Campus Improvement Planning committees.
Macon Elementary has established "The People's Garden," which is an outdoor classroom where students and parents reconnect with nature and the true source of their food. Teachers teach valuable gardening and agricultural concepts and skills and integrate this learning with subjects such as math, science, art, health, physical education, and social studies, as well as several educational goals, including personal and social responsibility.
