About Our School

Mission Statement  

The mission of Riceville Elementary School personnel, in partnership with our stakeholders, the parents, and the community, is to provide a child-focused curriculum for the development of each student through a variety of educational experiences.  It is the desire of school personnel, community, and parents to produce students who will become life-long learners and productive citizens.

About The School

Riceville Elementary – Grades Pre-K – 8

Riceville Elementary School was first established in 1857.  The building and site of this first school were utilized until 1908.  

Throughout the years, Riceville’s parent-teacher organization (PTO) has worked hard to give Riceville students a diverse and well-rounded education.  PTO has provided funds for computer equipment, “Reading is Fundamental” (RIF), playground equipment, and many extra items for students.  The parents also work long hours giving their time to many other projects and individual student tutoring.

Riceville Elementary School lies in the small rural area of Riceville, Tennessee, which is south of Athens, Tennessee.  Riceville Elementary is not a community school.  While most of our students live in the Riceville area and surrounding communities, many of our students live in the city of Athens and other communities around McMinn County.
