Meet our Principal


    Greetings Hamilton E. Holmes Elementary School Community,

    Filipe Jackson

    Filipe Jackson

    I hope this letter finds you in great spirit. I am excited and thrilled at the opportunity to be the new principal of Hamilton E. Holmes Elementary School. I'm beginning my 14th year as a principal, with 10 years in Fulton County Schools. I am grateful for the opportunity honored to bring my skills as an educational leader to Hamilton E. Holmes and work with you as a partner in education to ensure that we are successful. I look forward to supporting your scholar's academic and social emotional growth as we begin our 2023-2024 educational journey.

    I will work hard to make the transition as smooth as possible. I will work hard to put us in position to increase our CCRPI score, increase student achievement within our subgroups , and promote a positive school culture and climate by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners.

    This year we will focus on our use of data to inform instruction, implementing the literacy and math framework, strategies to increase student achievement with the Georgia Milestones, and providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students. We will be departmentalizing in grades 3 through 5. We will focus on building strategic relationships and schoolwide initiatives through our work as a PBIS school; hosting Royal Lion nights and Royal Lion events and assemblies that help to foster a nurturing safe environment for our scholars.

    I anticipate a most successful year as the teachers, administration, staff members, and I are committed to the academic, social, and emotional growth and development of our Royal Lions at Hamilton E. Holmes Elementary School. My door is always open, and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet!

    "Good, better, best; never let it rest; until your good becomes your better; and your better becomes your best!" At Hamilton E. Holmes, "Our Royal Lions are getting smarter by working harder."
