The Meigs County public schools represent the future of the children in Meigs County. These schools represent the welfare of our citizens, county and country.   Therefore, in the Meigs County School System, we are committed to an equal and quality education for all children. This commitment has led to the following advances within our educational program:

  • Continuous building program throughout the school system
  • One of the lowest teacher/pupil ratios in East Tennessee
  • Fine arts instruction
  • A commitment to advances in technology. All schools are equipped with computer labs
  • A wide range of extra-curricular activities including clubs, athletics, band and special annual events
  • A comprehensive discipline code including a strictly enforced drug and tobacco policy.
  • Dual credit classes are offered in conjunction with Cleveland State Community College.

Meigs County parents encourage their children to honor the rich history of the area while preparing themselves for the challenges of the future. The traditions of yesterday are not relics from the past, rather, they comprise the foundation for a dynamic future. The values instilled by a rural community such as respect, compassion, and hard work are just as important in building the future as they have been in constructing the past.

Civic organizations, industry leaders, concerned parents, and interested citizens generously invest time and money in the school system in recognition of the crucial role it plays in making Meigs County a rich and vibrant community.
