The History of Fairview Elementary School

   “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.
