About Us

BES has been designated a 2018 Title One Highest- Performing Rewards School by the Georgia Department of Education. A highest-performing school is among the 5% of the state’s Title One schools with the absolute highest performance, over 3 years, for the“all students” group on the statewide assessments. Our CCRPI (College and Career Ready Performance Index) score is 86.0 and our financial efficient star rating is 4.5.
CCRPI is a comprehensive school improvement, accountability, and communication platform for all educational stakeholders that will promote college and career readiness for all Georgia public school students.
 
At BES, we believe the teacher’s role is to design and lead engaging work, the students’ role is to contribute their effort and abilities to increase learning, learning occurs in a safe, nurturing environment., communication, collaboration, and connection at all levels builds a positive school culture, and community involvement is essential to school success.
 
BES focuses on teaching students important leadership habits as a part of our character education program. These habits help students to make positive, effective, and responsible choices. We focus on the 7 Leadership Habits from Stephen Covey’s book “The Leader in Me”. Students learn and apply one leadership habit per month. When taught and practiced in a school environment, these 7 habits have been proven to improve academic engagement, comprehension, and performance by strengthening individual work habits and improving social interactions.

Berrien Elementary School’s faculty and staff have a genuine love of the students. They truly want to see the students succeed and have high standards set for all students.
