Our History
Welcome! The administration, faculty, staff, and students welcome you to Western Elementary School, located in the historic community of Sargent. Western Elementary has approximately 450 students in grades Pre-K- 5. The school's mascot is the eagle. Western is the oldest existing school in the Coweta County school system - over 110 years of excellence and tradition. Many of the parents and grandparents of our students attended Western. The school's commitment to continuous improvement is imperative in order to enable students to become confident, self-directed, lifelong learners. Western Elementary School is committed to student success. We work toward achieving this mission by modeling, practicing, and supporting the academic, social, and behavioral skills which foster lifelong learners.
Western School is a very special place. The community-based atmosphere makes it so. Through the rich history of Welcome community, we are positive that Western's rich heritage can provide the necessary guidance and positive reinforcement to meet our goals. We have a real sense of "Family" here.
There are several staff members who are Western High School alumni. In May, 1994, Western observed its 100-year celebration. We have an active Alumni Association which has members from the class of 1914 through 1973, the last graduating class. The highest challenge or standard that Western Elementary School can maintain must be based on what the school does for each individual student and the community that supports it.
