About Pelham City Schools

We've made great strides and have accomplished many things since our school system's beginning in 2014. 

With a new elementary school opened in 2016 and a new middle school opened in 2017, the footprint of our school system has changed and improved 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 parents, 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.
