Welcome to Florence Elementary School. Florence Elementary School is a 3rd-5th grade elementary school anchored in the wonderful community of Florence, Mississippi located just minutes from our state’s capital city of Jackson.

The staff and faculty at Florence Elementary School are committed to providing the best possible education for every child in a safe, nurturing environment. We firmly believe that success in school leads to success in life, and we strive to provide a learning climate that promotes positive attitudes and builds each student’s character and academic success.

Here at Florence, teaching and learning focus on meeting and exceeding the Mississippi Common Core State Standards for every child. Varied levels and differentiation of instruction provide a framework to challenge advanced students and support those who are struggling, while creating a solid classroom experience for students learning at grade level. Our teachers at every grade level are trained to give support and opportunities for all students, assuring that all children have access to the core curriculum. It is our intention for each one of our students to leave Florence Elementary School prepared for higher education, equipped with critical thinking skills, and empowered with a love of learning.

We consider parents to be our absolute partners in every Florence student’s education, and we welcome volunteers in our classrooms, activities, and programs. Our teachers invite ongoing communication with families, and our door is always open. We appreciate your input, and we look forward to partnering with you and your child in these formative years of school.

FES teachers are working hard this summer to prepare for the 2014-2015 school year. Several teachers attended "Math Boot Camp" conducted by RCSD.
