School Information

Monteagle Elementary has been in operation since the early 1900’s.  A new addition and a complete renovation of the old part of the building was completed in 2004.  Two additional classrooms and the expansion of the cafeteria occurred during the summer of 2007. Many other renovations have been made to the gymnasium as well. Monteagle Elementary School is a SACS accredited school with approximately 240 students in grades PK-8.  We have high standards as well as high achievement scores in all grades.  MES is a pilot school for SWPBS, a positive behavior support program.

MES provides art, PE, character education, and computer classes for all students in addition to all the academic subjects.  Extra curricular programs include basketball, cheerleading, volleyball, 4-H, and student council.  We are an integral part of the Monteagle community and welcome visitors and volunteers at the school.
