    Atherton Elementary of the Houston Independent School District is "striving for excellence".  The school is located in the heart of Fifth Ward, Houston, Texas and services primarily African American students, with a growing population of Hispanics.  As the community experiences redevelopment, a slow but continual change in the demographics is evident and is directly influencing the student population at Atherton.  Atherton has a mixed population of approximately 500 students.  This total is comprised of 80.74% African American, 18.5% Hispanic, and 0.76% Asian.


    Mission Statement:
    It is the goal of the faculty, staff, parents, and community of Atherton Elementary to equip each child regardless of cultural background and to provide realistic approaches to technology that will allow our students to be successful in the future.
