About Pelham City Schools

From the Superintendent

We've made great strides and have accomplished many things in our short time as Pelham City Schools, and we’re transforming our school system into an excellent learning environment for all students through our commitments and investments. 

With the construction of a new elementary school and a new middle school, the footprint of our school system is changing and improving to meet the needs of our growing community. Meanwhile, significant investments and facility improvements are taking place in our schools, and our administrators, teachers, and staff are committed to implementing innovative ways to teach, engage students and raise achievement.

With the support of our community, city leaders, and board members, we’re dedicated to providing excellent instruction and opportunities that cultivate the well-being and success of our students every step of the way.
