It is the vision of the Macon County School System to provide all children with a safe and inviting environment to ensure their success.  We want to instill in each student high expectations, morals, and respect enabling them to graduate with the knowledge and skills to become productive and responsible citizens.



The Macon County School System inspires and empowers students to meet high academic standards, lead ethical lives, and demonstrate responsible citizenship.



Education, which is an on-going process that begins at birth and continues through the adult years, is the responsibility of educators, parents, businesses, and community populations.

All students have the right to educational opportunities that will provide them with the skills, knowledge, and resources which enable them to become healthy, successful, productive citizens.

Student achievement is directly related, but not limited to, a high degree of parental and community involvement through meaningful communication in planning and implementing educational programs and opportunities.

Our system maintains a high focus on improving the achievement of all students.
