  About The School  


Image for Welcome

Welcome to Ithica Elementary School at Graben-Garrett Farm! We invite you to explore our website and discover the Ithica difference. Here at Ithica, IES doesn’t just stand for Ithica Elementary School …it also means “Inspiring Every Student.”

Our dedicated faculty and staff are passionate about inspiring each student as they celebrate excellence and effort. This collaborative spirit is contagious, resulting in a school that is characterized by its strong sense of community and warm, nurturing family atmosphere.

At IES, we respect individual learning styles because we know and value every child. This passion for inspiring each student has produced a region Georgia Young Author, five County Young Author Winners, a Jr. Beta Spelling Bee Winner, a County Bus Safety Poster Winner, a State Poster Winner for Fire Safety, a County winner for Black History Bookmark Contest, and a State 4-H Winner (livestock division) in the short time Ithica has been open.

We serve a student population of approximately 760 students, ranging from Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade.
