Garrett Serve Days
We appreciate Woodstock Church // Austell and participating fellowships from Knoxville, Tennessee for all of their efforts in making our campus look so beautiful in June. They persevered in the heat and helped to provide landscaping on our school campus. An additional thanks goes to Mr. Boggs and Mrs. Kamhout for all of their hard work painting inside our building. It takes a village to raise a child. Today the village stepped up.

Garrett Middle School is excited to open the doors to our community for parents, both veteran residents as well as new to Austell, to visit our school and tour our amazing campus.

New Partnership with MUST Ministries

We are proud to have opened the 30th MUST Ministries food pantry! Through the efforts of the Garrett Middle School staff and community, our new food pantry will help feed and assist Garrett families in need as a part of MUST's Save It Forward Program. Approximately 40 families have visited the food pantry and shopped for items such as groceries, school supplies and more. For more information or how to get involved, contact our school secretary, Shannon Fritts through email or by calling 770-819-2466.


We Believe:

  • that all students are capable of meeting or exceeding state standards in all disciplines given adequate time and instructional support.
  • that it is the shared responsibility of teachers, staff, administrators, students, parents, and the community to ensure learning and social success for all students.
  • that the collaborative efforts of our school community will enable each student to become a responsible, contributing citizen.
