With an enrollment of just over 200, West Hardin Elementary serves children in grades Pre-K through 5 in the communities of Crump, Saltillo, Milledgeville, and Morris Chapel. Located on State Highway 69, the current campus was completed in 1976, consolidating several smaller schools in surrounding communities. Mr. Kenny Harris has served as principal since 1999 and works with county-level administrators to provide a smooth academic path. West Hardin offers the complete state-mandated academic coursework as well as Related Arts classes that enhance academic lessons for a complete, student-centered curriculum. After-school and summer school programs are also provided for students that include tutoring and enrichment activities. West Hardin also offers extracurricular activities that include basketball and bowling teams as well as a Student Council and Beta Club.
West Hardin works to provide a quality instructional program that develops the academic, social, emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of its students. West Hardin believes that parents are a child’s first teachers and that education does not stop when the child enters school, therefore parents are strongly encouraged to be actively involved in their child’s education. Parents are always welcome and encouraged to visit the campus and participate in school activities. There is a Parent Involvement Coordinator who organizes events to provide parents with learning and informative opportunities.
