Welcome to Haralson County Middle School! My name is Jodi Cash. I am truly honored to serve as Principal of HCMS. I am a life-long resident of Tallapoosa and a proud Haralson County High School graduate. After graduating from college, I had the distinct privilege of beginning my educational career with the Haralson County School System. Whether you are a lifelong resident or a newcomer to Haralson County, I thank you for choosing the stellar HCMS faculty and staff to educate your student. Over the years, the faculty, staff, and students of HCMS have successfully transitioned HCMS from one of the most consistently underperforming middle schools in Georgia to a middle school with a 5-Star Climate Rating, a CCRPI score significantly above the state average, and a “Beating the Odds” designation by the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement.
At HCMS, student success is our priority, student focus is our expectation, and innovation is our norm. All students receive STEM education through relevant, innovative, and rigorous learning experiences designed to inspire students to develop a strong work ethic and higher-level critical thinking skills. Being a 1:1 school, students are empowered daily to become innovators and technologically proficient problem solvers. HCMS faculty and staff work diligently to ensure every student receives a quality education and is given the opportunity to achieve at the highest levels during their school years and in life after school.
As a PBIS school, HCMS has successfully implemented and earned high ratings for our school-wide approach to building a highly effective, student-centered, and positive school climate. Students are expected to adhere to “The Rebel Way” by continually modeling respectfulness, responsibility, and reliability. Parents are strongly encouraged to be actively engaged and work alongside our school to create a more successful student. HCMS students, parents, faculty, staff, and community certainly have a lot to be proud of, but I challenge each of you to continue our collaborative effort as we strive to reach levels of excellence once considered impossible.
Jodi Cash, HCMS Principal
