Welcome to Vardaman Elementary School, a Mississippi Department of Education A rated school.  It is my pleasure to serve the people and community of my hometown of Vardaman as principal.  It is an honor to lead a school with such a rich history of academic success.


VES currently serves 382 students and is home to 49 highly effective teachers and support staff.  Forty-three percent of our certified staff is Nationally Board Certified, and seventy-one percent hold a master’s degree or higher. 


At Vardaman Elementary our mission is to produce life-long learners who can be successful, caring, productive citizens who are able to make a positive impact on their community. 


Our motto is a quote from George Washington Carver: “When you can do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world.”


At Vardaman Elementary School, we believe in EXCELLENCE!


“Preparing more than others care to expect, practicing more often than the average person believes is necessary, believing in the quality of every moment in every day—this is what excellence is all about.


It comes from striving, maintaining the highest standards, the highest beliefs, looking after the smallest detail, using the basics, and going the extra mile.


Excellence means caring—caring enough about making a difference—it means making a special effort to do more than is asked and to expect more of oneself.”
