Newest Elementary School Opens in 2020

New Elementary School to be Built in Northwest Forsyth.

At last week's meeting of the Forsyth County Board of Education, board members unanimously approved a $21.7 million agreement with Carroll Daniel Construction for the construction of Poole’s Mill Elementary School in northwest Forsyth.  Carroll Daniel Construction  was  previously, contracted to build five county school-system buildings and projects, including Alliance Academy for Innovation, Kelly Mill, Brookwood and Whitlow elementary schools, as well as an addition to North Forsyth High School that was completed in 2007.

At this time, Poole’s Mill has been planned with a design similar to Brandywine Elementary School in south Forsyth, with the capacity for 1,125 students.

Poole’s Mill, like East Forsyth High School, is a property that was purchased by the system in the early 2000s but was tabled due to the severity of the economic recession that the country experienced after the crash of 2008.
