High Point Elementary was built in 1961.  It was originally built for Grades 1 through 7 with less than 400 students.  At that time, High Point had no Kindergarten or PreK classes.  There was no air conditioning at High Point until the 1970's!  In the past 50 years, there have been quite a few changes.

High Point has had two major additions since it was built.  The Kindergarten wing was added in 1987.  The Fourth and Fifth grade wing was added in 2007.  We now have a student population of approximately 800 students in Grades PreK through 5.

In 2012, High Point Elementary earned Title 1 Distinguished Status.

Title 1 is a federal program that provides additional funding to schools serving children in high poverty areas and who are most at risk for not meeting the state's performance standards, such as Adequate Yearly Progress ("AYP"), a key piece of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (often referred to as "No Child Left Behind") and a measure of a school's academic success and improvement.  Title 1 funds are distributed by the federal government under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act to assist in educating students who are economically disadvantaged.  In Fulton County, schools are eligible for Title 1 funding if 35% or more of the children in an attendance zone qualify for the free and/or reduced price meal program.  High Point Elementary qualifies as a Title 1 school.

To be named "Distinguished," Title 1 schools must achieve AYP for a minimum of three consecutive years.  High Point Elementary earned the distinction and received a recognition certificate this year.
