• Hartsfield Elementary – Home of the Hawks


    Welcome to Hartsfield Elementary

    Hello Parents, Teachers, Students, and Friends of Hartsfield Elementary School! It is truly an honor and a privilege to serve as principal of Hartsfield Elementary and I am excited about the things we will accomplish together in this upcoming year!

    My goal is to inspire greatness in each teacher to build champions of learning in the classroom one day at a time. Our students deserve a learning environment that is safe, nurturing, fun, and where educators maximize the potential of each child through their expertise, love for children, and dedication to their craft.

    An Exceptional Education

    Hartsfield Elementary is proud to offer an outstanding education to every one of our students. With a student-teacher ratio of 14:1, we are able to give each pupil individual attention and support.

    About Our School

    Hartsfield Elementary is a Conscious Discipline and Trauma Informed School. We implement practices that focus on developing the whole child, with an emphasis on the socio-emotional health of each learner.

    Our Conscious Discipline strategies help students learn to regulate their own behavior, and in the process create a culture of connectedness and caring. In tandem with the Conscious Discipline curriculum, we implement additional strategies to accommodate students that have experienced trauma to help mitigate the impact of adverse experiences on their learning.

    H.E.S. is also home to a variety of student groups and enrichment activities. For example, our award-winning Chorus has received numerous state competition awards, been the recipient of monetary awards, and has been invited to sing at Carnegie Hall. Additionally, the H.E.S. Garden Club is the 2018 recipient of a Farm to School award sponsored by the Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services.

    We believe that learning can and should continue outside of the classroom. In partnership with the United Way, H.E.S. has created an after school program to bring Reading and Math Pals academic enrichment to our students.

    The H.E.S. faculty are the backbone of our ability to serve our students and families. Our faculty has been recognized for excellence by the receipt of numerous Leon County Schools Foundation Grants over the past several years, including a recent award for Ms. Oakley’s “Math on the Move” program.

    Our students leave H.E.S. and go on to achieve success in a wide variety of fields. Some of our notable alumni include Judge Nikki Clark and County Commissioner Diane Williams Cox.

    Bringing the World to Hartsfield

    School History

    Our school has been present for over 20 years. We make the most of all our students.


    Hartsfield Elementary School serves students and families in the Indian Head Community. Our community has a long history associated with the Seminole Indians. The streets have authentic Seminole names ending with Nene, which means trail. Three ceremonial mounds containing Indian artifacts were discovered when the community was being built in the early 1950s. Hartsfield is named after former Leon County School Superintendent Francis S. Hartsfield, Sr. We're proud to represent our community and its history, while building a brighter future for residents of Indian Head.
