    Athens Elementary is an awesome school. The school has a tenure teaching staff that has an abundant amount of knowledge and experience in teaching students. My son was new to the district a couple of years ago and has so far enjoyed attending the school. He makes excellent grades and speaks highly of all the teachers he has had!!!
