Crisp County School System
Learning Today… Leading Tomorrow
“Learning Today…Leading Tomorrow” is more than just a slogan for the teachers, staff and administrators employed by the Crisp County School System.
This district-wide vision statement reflects a collective commitment to empower students to optimize their potentials as a result of mastering rigorous and relevant academic standards while they are enrolled in the Crisp County schools at all levels Pre-K through 12th grade.
Complementing the district’s pursuit of academic excellence is its commitment to fine arts, drama, music, vocational readiness, and athletics.
Carefully sequenced and rigorous academic curricula, complemented with opportunities for students to explore their artistic, athletic, and vocational interests, perpetually prepared our community’s youth for their destinies as students in post-secondary schools, as contributing members of the local workforce, and as leaders in Crisp County for generations to come.
