About Our School

Mansfield Elementary School is a fully accredited school since 1975 by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.It is a public rural school housing Pre-K through 5th grade classes.It is located in a natural setting away from the mainstream of suburban Atlanta, in the small town of Mansfield, Georgia. Agriculture, small businesses, and light industry serve the area; however, most parents commute to jobs outside the immediate school area. Recently, small subdivisions and homes are replacing previous farmland.

Mansfield Elementary School experiences a high level of community involvement, including community volunteers, Partners in Education, and the PTO. The school's motto, "We Are Family", reflects the close, caring atmosphere of our school community. With its long history of serving the community, Mansfield Elementary School receives excellent parent and community support. Seven businesses, civic and community organizations are currently formal Partners in Education. Numerous volunteers, parents and business partners assist with school programs such as tutors, clinic workers, clerical aides and chaperones, etc… Many of Mansfield Elementary School special activities are designed to encourage community involvement. These include our annual book parade, Veteran's Day observance, curriculum fair, awards programs, and local field trips. Youth serving organizations such as Boy Scouts are granted use of the facilities. One of the local churches has helped house the summer reading program.
