Superintendent's Message

John S. Aitken, Superintendent
Collierville Schools


These are exciting times in Collierville Schools and the Town of Collierville. The 2017-18 school year promises to be a busy but exciting time for all of us in Collierville Schools. We are one year away from opening our new Collierville High School facility, and the next year will be full of planning for the move in late summer 2018. We will also be busy preparing for the conversion of the current high school facility into a middle school facility, as well as the conversion of Schilling Farms Middle School into our 6th elementary school to accommodate the growth in our Town. Needless to say, all of us in Collierville Schools will be busy!


We continue to be blessed by an exceptional Board of Education whose members epitomize commitment and dedication. Our community is an exceptional community, and the amenities we sometime take for granted are envied by those across the state and region. I am proud to be the leader of such a great school district, but also a resident of this wonderful Town.


The administrators, teachers, and staff in all of our schools are dedicated individuals who tirelessly work for the students in our community. We continue to explore new programs to better prepare our students for post-secondary education and careers. We are also excited about our partnership with the Collierville Chamber of Commerce as we both seek to find ways to provide a better prepared work force for our community.


Our school district continues to excel in so many areas, yet we must still continue to look for ways to improve and provide opportunities for all of our students. It is also imperative that we instill in all of our kids the traits of Scholarship, Integrity, and Service that were adopted by our Board of Education as the district motto.


We look forward to another exciting and successful year. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at


Proud to be a Dragon!


Mr. A.
