Our History

North Elementary opened on September 8, 1959, to 280 students in grades 1 - 4. The staff consisted of eight teachers. North was rezoned in 1975 with the opening of Tussing Elementary and again in 1983 with the closing of Flora M. Hill School.

Today, North Elementary serves approximately 325 students in grades Pre-K - 5. North has 50 staff members and a number of part-time and itinerant personnel. North Elementary has been fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools since 1976.


The North Elementary Parent Teacher Organization generally meets the second Thursday in September, November, December, March, April and May. The P.T.O. has worked cooperatively with North Elementary School on projects designed to support the teaching staff in its efforts toward instructional excellence. They sponsor the annual North Field Day, Scholastic Book Fairs, and the Secret Santa Shop. They have purchased basketball goals for the gym, a digital camera, playground equipment, and many other items.
