Our vision is that all are inspired to embrace authentic learning, to excel, and to own their future.
Matt Elementary opened in 2001 with approximately 600 students. It was named after the original Matt Elementary, which was located on Bannister Road. The “Old Matt” school was named after the Matt community, which was named after Matison Martin. The original Matt school held 75 students in multiple grades. Rather than desks, students sat on slab benches around an open fireplace. Their drinking water came from a nearby spring and students walked to school. Ms. Mary Harwell was the first principal of the new Matt Elementary. The school was a new design concept (the same as Cumming Elementary) and was built to relieve overcrowding in north-west Forsyth County.
