Superintendent's Message

Superintendent Matthew Madding

“It's a great day to be an Eagle!”

I would like to welcome you to Graves County Schools.  Our primary goal is to provide a world-class educational system that will prepare your child to be ready for the transition to college or a career upon graduation.  To achieve this goal, our work each day will focus on developing your child to his or her fullest potential both academically and socially. This work is built on the foundation of our five core beliefs:

  1.   1. All students can learn and rise to our expectations.

  2.   2. Everything we do should be student centered.

  3.   3. Teachers influence learning more than any other factor.

      4. Students learn more when authentically engaged.

      5. As a team, schools, parents, and communities help students reach their highest potential.    

These core beliefs keep us focused on teaching to high standards, addressing specific needs of our students, and working to build productive relationships with all stakeholders in our schools.

Graves County is a district that has high expectations for all students, and we provide an atmosphere that is safe and supportive of student learning.  Graves County Schools has a rich tradition of achievement academically, in the fine arts, athletically, and in other extra curricular activities. Being an Eagle is a point of pride in our schools and community.

I believe that Graves County is a special place and that our school district is a district of excellence.  Thank you for visiting our website, and if you have any questions about our district, please let me know. It’s a great day to be an Eagle!

Thank you,

Matthew Madding
