The school is located in the Virginia-Highland neighborhood and serves students currently residing in Ansley Park, Midtown, Morningside, Sherwood Forest and Virginia-Highland.

Through the years, the school has been renovated and newer editions to the facility were added and, in 1978, the elementary school was converted into a middle school.
