history of fairview

“The doors of Fairview Elementary School swing open wide on welcoming hinges. We provide essential academic challenges, support, and structure, yet remain a nurturing school community necessary for the development of each child entrusted to us.”

  • 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
