Welcome to Matilda Harris Elementary School
Dr. Heath Heron, Principal

Home of the Jaguars, Matilda Harris Elementary School (MHES) is named after Matilda Tompkins (Ann) Harris.  Matilda Harris was the first female African American teacher in Camden County who began her 60 year educational career in 1871.  Admired for her personal qualities and her leadership abilities, the General Assembly of the State of Georgia designated the Camden County Training School as the Matilda Harris Elementary School on February 18, 1964.

Camden County Schools, in alliance with Southeast Georgia Health System, Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the American Cancer Society, invite you to wear pink in support of those in our community who are currently fighting breast cancer, in recognition of those who have lost a loved one and in celebration of our breast cancer survivors.
