Principal's WelcomeDr. Adams

It is an honor to welcome you to Thomas E. Kerns Elementary School. Our teachers and staff work diligently to optimize the conditions for your child’s success. We are committed to each student’s care and well-being, social and academic development, and continued school improvement.

I have enjoyed a long career as a teacher, coach, and administrator in Spartanburg and Laurens counties, and I am proud to serve Greenville County Schools and Thomas E. Kerns Elementary. In addition to my duties as school administrator, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, participating in my church, music, reading, and exercise.

Most importantly, our leadership team supports a teaching and learning culture that meets the needs of each student. School staff, parents, families, faith-based and business partners, PTA, and our community all play a major role in preparing students for college and career readiness and productive and contributing citizenship. The foundation for the Greenville County Graduation Plus initiative begins here at Thomas E. Kerns. CATCH the Wildcat Spirit!

Please visit our website and let us know how we can serve you and your child.


Mark Adams, Ph. D.
