Superintendent Wes Taylor

Welcome to the Lowndes County School System, a great place to live, work, and attend school! It is with great humility and honor that I have served the students, staff, parents, and community of Lowndes County as superintendent of schools since 2012. As I visit with staff members and parents, I am thankful for employees who are committed to providing a quality education for our students and for parents who support our schools. Evidence of this support is visible in the number of parent volunteers in our schools, active booster clubs, and community partners who enhance the educational experience for our students. As I've had the opportunity to meet with business and community leaders, it is obvious that we all want our children to achieve academically and after graduation become successful in each of their future endeavors.

We are the 34th largest school district in Georgia, serving 10,650 students in our 11 schools. We are the fourth largest employer in Lowndes County with more than 1,400 employees. Our 11 schools, serving students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, offer a wide variety of academic, extracurricular, and community service opportunities. One of our goals is to provide a quality education delivered by caring and competent professionals in first-class facilities. Our schools have excelled regionally, at the state level, and nationally. Although these accomplishments are impressive, it is the high performance of our students and teachers of which we are most proud. We strive daily to grow, improve, and perpetuate the legacy of excellence in the Lowndes County School System that was initiated by many former great and committed educators who served our community well.

I encourage you to visit our website for an overview of our school system. While visiting our website, our goal is for you to find it helpful and informative. If you need additional information, please contact us.

It is a great time to be a part of the Lowndes County School System, and the future is bright!
