  • At Morningside Elementary School, we believe every student has the potential to succeed, and we are dedicated to making a difference in their lives
    by encouraging them to open their minds to learning, discovery, and achievement.  

    Opened in 1929, Morningside is in the Grady Cluster of the Atlanta Public School System. Morningside feeds into Inman Middle School and Grady High School. Our school mascot is the dolphin. Morningside Elementary School is located in the Morningside community and currently serves the neighborhoods of Morningside, Lenox Park, Sherwood Forest, Piedmont Heights, and Ansley Park In 2016, the U.S. Secretary of Education, John B. King, Jr., announced Morningside Elementary School as a National Blue Ribbon School in the Exemplary High Performing Category.  Morningside was most recently designated as a 2016 Green Ribbon School for their commitment to sustainable practices and leadership in facilities, health, and environmental education.
    A high-performing community school where teachers inspire, families engage and students excel.
    With a culture of collaboration and high standards, all students will be nurtured and well prepared for their future.
