Dr. Maria Hargrove

I am excited to welcome you back to school for the 2023-2024 year at Social Circle Primary School! At SCPS, we strive to support your child by addressing his/her social, emotional, and learning needs in the most appropriate way. In addition to that, we do everything in our power to foster a genuine love for learning for our students. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me (email is the quickest).

As principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through the doors of SCPS--staff, students, parents, and visitors--are happy and excited to be here! A positive attitude enables us to all meet the challenges of academic excellence in a fun, nurturing, and supportive environment. We want students to believe they can succeed and give them many opportunities to be successful.

At Social Circle Primary School, our mission is to Support Children to be Proud STARS. We have an outstanding faculty and staff at SCPS that works relentlessly to ensure that all of our students succeed. Our teachers are dedicated, nurturing, and highly-qualified individuals who deliver standards-based instruction through best practices in education. If we work together we will accomplish our goals! I encourage you to stay in contact with your child’s teacher about how they are progressing academically and behaviorally.

As principal for both Social Circle Primary and Social Circle Elementary, I strive to be available to students, parents, and staff as much as possible. Please always feel free to reach out to me at any time. Since I work with both schools, the simplest way to reach me is via email. From there, I can call you and/or set up a time to meet with you.

I am here to support you and your student during your time at Social Circle Primary School. Remember, my door is always open. I look forward to connecting with you throughout the year!
