Out in rural Robertson County in the middle of rows of cotton fields, a small but flourishing school proves to be a magnet for families from many neighboring communities. Mumford Elementary is known for its "Academic Excellence" by having consistent, high expectations, and by holding all involved in the educational process accountable. While the town of Mumford has a population of only 60 people, the elementary school has grown exponentially from having 70 students in 1980 to a current enrollment of 380, grades Pre-Kindergarten – sixth. The elementary school works closely with the high school, sharing many of the same activities, administration, staff, and facilities. This enables students to feel a part of something bigger than themselves, have a sense of family, and an environment that encourages collaboration among students and staff.

This positive environment allows students to create, explore, and engage their whole selves in the learning process. When you give students a safe environment to learn and encourage everyone to work together, students will be successful. Every person, whether a student, parent, custodian, teacher, or administrator, is a valued team member. Each person has a clear understanding of their responsibilities and roles, and holds each other accountable, which is key to success. With a strong school leadership, it is a simple concept - there is no need for frilly programs and fancy classrooms but solid teaching by caring, quality staff, structured discipline, consistent expectations, and a safe, welcoming environment for a student to grow and develop into a well-rounded individual.
