The Proud Straughn Tiger Tradition Begins here at Straughn Elementary School. Straughn Elementary School is a rural public K-5 school-wide Title I school in Covington County, Alabama, geographically located in south central Alabama, and operated by the Covington County School System. Straughn Elementary School serves the rural communities of Straughn, Heath, Antioch, Rose Hill, Babbie, Gantt, and Harmony. Since its creation in 1996 when Straughn School, a K-12 school established in 1886, separated into an elementary (K-6) and high school (7-12), our student enrollment has increased to 560+ students, with over 75% of our students being transported to and from school on school buses, and 22% of our students attending afterschool programming on campus. In 2006, Straughn Middle School, a 6-8 school, was created. All three schools are located within walking distance of each other.
Community expectations, state accountability, and student-centered learning attitudes among the faculty, staff, administration, and parents/guardians have been the catalysts for Straughn Elementary School meeting its Adequate Yearly Progress in reading, mathematics, and science proficiency every year to date, a 95-97% attendance rate, 100% of teachers and paraprofessionals being highly qualified, and few incidents of discipline. Straughn Elementary School has been an Alabama Reading Initiative School since 2005, and is the recipient of a 21st Century Community Learning Center grant for the next three years (grant totaling $600,000).
