Public Schools K-12

A commitment of excellence that travels well beyond the horizon. A commitment of quality that plans for the future but never loses sight of the present. A commitment to educate the children of Polk County, adequately preparing them for their next steps in life. These statements define the character of education in Polk County.

The public school system in Polk County provides a quality education to 7,200 students countywide. Our community realizes that the students of today soon grow up to be the leaders of
tomorrow.Classrooms are equipped with the latest technology; every student in the county’s 10 public schools has access to a computer and the Internet. Incorporating technology with tried and true methods of educating young minds is paramount in Polk County.

As the county continues to grow, educators continue to progress right along with it. In recent years, two new middle school were constructed and a new high school on the east side and two new elementary schools were just completed. 
Our schools are institutions of excellence, receiving a wide range of state distinctions year after year. From academics to athletics, Polk County schools are focused on the future of our youth. The Polk School District is governed by a nine-member board of education.

Board members have met the requirements of becoming an eBoard, which allows parents and residents of Polk County to access meeting times, meeting agendas and Polk School District policies with the click of a mouse.

The Polk County Board of Education is named as a Board of Distinction by the Georgia School Boards Association. This was a well-deserved honor after more than a year of hard work and effort by our local
board. Our district is one out of 35 with this distinguished title.
