About Us

Hawkins Elementary S.M.A.R.T. School is a Title I school located at 526 Forrest Street in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. We currently serve approximately 275 students in pre-kindergarten to fifth grade. Our school's motto is "I have a purpose, I have a plan, I have a position, possibilities and responsibilities. You believe and I believe that I have been prepared by the S.M.A.R.T. things I do everyday." 
Hawkins is one of six schools in the state named a Gold Ribbon School by the Mississippi Department of Education for its efforts to rapidly improve student performance. Our assessment given three times per year is a great indicator of how the students will do on the state assessment. Students are made aware of their scores. Afterwards, their goals are set accordingly. Each individual student knows exactly what it takes to reach their goals.
According to the Mississippi Department of Education, Hawkins Elementary S.M.A.R.T. School earned a "C" accountability rating in the year of 2013 and has maintained this level.  Our ultimate goal is to reach an "A" rating!
