Principal: Mr. James Wyatt
Greetings Parents, Families, and Stakeholders of Morgan County Primary School (MCPS):
I'm extremely excited to join the staff of MCPS as the new Principal. I am very passionate about education, and I look forward to partnering with you to provide our learners with a rigorous, engaging, and high-quality primary school experience. It is our vision to set the stage for student success!
Before coming to MCPS, I served the past eighteen years of my career working as a teacher and administrator with Clayton County Public Schools. I grew up in Morgan County, and I am a proud graduate of Morgan County High. I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Education (B.S.Ed) from the University of Georgia, a Master of Education (M.Ed) in Administration and Supervision from the University of West Georgia, and a Specialist in Education (Ed.S) in Educational Leadership from the University of West Georgia as well.
I believe that great schools are the result of the faculty and staff working collaboratively with parents and the community to ensure that all students succeed.
I will be working closely with our teachers, counselors, Academic Coach, and Assistant Principal to guarantee that all of our learners are intellectually challenged and have access to the social and emotional support critical to students during their primary years, I encourage each of you to get involved. Whether it be through the PTO, the School Governance Team, or as a volunteer, your contribution is an investment in our students' future.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve you in this role!
James D. Wyatt

I taught 1st and 2nd grade at Morgan County Primary for eight years. As an educator, I am a lifelong learner who is passionate about helping individual students reach their fullest potential. I believe that the primary school years are critical in the future success of a student and that the instructional program must be a unique one that considers physical, social, intellectual, and emotional development. I am also committed to providing the support and professional development that teachers need to meet the needs of today’s 21st century learner. I am excited to see what this school year holds for us here at Morgan County Primary School.

On a more personal note, I am married to the wonderful Dustin Mitchell. We have a beautiful 9-year-old daughter, Riley. All three of us are looking forward to moving to Morgan County and joining this amazing community.
Educating children is truly my passion. I am dedicated to working with my fellow colleagues to provide a world-class education for our students. It is my goal to ensure that all children are successful, in their individual ways, so that they become productive citizens in this ever-changing society.
Here to serve,
