HISTORY OF FAIRVIEW

Fairview Elementary School was established in 1929, when several schools in the area merged to form one school. The school is the oldest continuously operated public school in Henry County, Georgia. The original Fairview had three rooms, which branched off from a round auditorium in the middle. Fairview was chosen as the name because you could see a “fair view” of all its surroundings.

It served as the hub of the Stockbridge community for many years. Before the development of the Henry County Recreational Center, it served as the host facility for northern Henry recreational activities, political forums, and town hall meetings.

Several formal Principals of Fairview have gone on to become either Superintendent or Assistant Superintendent of Henry County Schools.
