Welcome to Matilda Harris Elementary School
Dr. Heath Heron, Principal

Home of the Jaguars, Matilda Harris Elementary School (MHES) is named after Matilda Tompkins (Ann) Harris.  Matilda Harris was the first female African American teacher in Camden County who began her 60 year educational career in 1871.  Admired for her personal qualities and her leadership abilities, the General Assembly of the State of Georgia designated the Camden County Training School as the Matilda Harris Elementary School on February 18, 1964.

Georgia Milestones Assessment Results
Show Progress and Opportunity for Camden County Schools

The Georgia Department of Education recently released student scores from the 2014-15 administration of the Georgia Milestones Assessment System which includes End of Grade (EOG) tests in grades 3-8 and End of Course (EOC) tests in grades 9-12. Results from this first year of Georgia Milestones reveal areas of accomplishment and opportunities for growth.  As expected, due to the more rigorous standards assessed by Georgia Milestones, statewide scores were lower than teachers and parents are accustomed to receiving. Camden County’s students’ scores were, once again, higher than the state average in most areas.
