Message from the Superintendent

Hello MGSD Community!

I want to take this opportunity to welcome each of our students to our district for the 2022-2023 school year!  I’m excited to join the Mooresville Graded School District family as your new superintendent.  MGSD is a special place for me as this is where I live and where my children go to school.  Our team will be working hard this year to ensure that every child receives what they need to succeed in school as well as to be prepared for whatever pathway they choose to take upon graduation.

We want you to know that we believe we have the best schools and the best staff in North Carolina!  We are committed to excellence in education for every child, every day.  MGSD’s first priority is the overall well-being of our students, and we want to make sure both our students and our parents realize this. If you ever have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

There are several exciting events occurring this new school year. The renovation and expansion projects at South and Park View Elementary Schools are nearing completion. The extra space and updates are much deserved for our staff and students at those two elementary schools. In addition, the construction of our second middle school is well underway, and we will be welcoming students and staff into it next August 2023!

We are fortunate to have strong community support in Mooresville Graded as we believe it truly takes a village to provide excellence for every child, every day.  Thank you for all that you do to make MGSD the best school district in North Carolina!

Yours in Service, 

Jason Gardner, Ed.D.
MGSD Superintendent of Schools
