Several SR Homes Cumming Communities Zoned for New Poole’s Mill Elementary

Several SR Homes Cumming Communities Zoned for New Poole’s Mill Elementary

Believe it or not, the back-to-school season is around the corner, and several SR Homes Cumming communities are zoned for the new Poole’s Mill Elementary, a long-awaited Forsyth County school slated to open this fall.

Named after historic Poole’s Mill Park, Poole’s Mill Elementary is located at 7110 Heardsville Road in Cumming. Originally purchased in 2005, construction was delayed due to the Great Recession (2007 to 2009) and later upturn.

After receiving a bond in 2017, construction started back up to create the school that now stands today. The building itself showcases a distinct one-story design inspired by the Poole’s Mill Covered Bridge with wooden lattice and stone column details on the exterior and a wall-mounted replica of the historic water mill inside.

Boasting the school colors of yellow, blue and grey, as well as a pirate parrot mascot, Poole’s Mill Elementary is scheduled to open in August for the 2020 – 2021 school year. The school’s principal, Ms. Paige Andrews, will head the elementary school with over 30 years of experience in education and 20 years in Forsyth County. As the district’s 22nd elementary school, Poole’s Mill will house grades K-5 and have the capacity to hold 1,125 students.

Along with the primary grade levels, Poole’s Mill Elementary also offers special area education such as physical education, music, art and STEM. Like other Forsyth County schools, Poole’s Mill Elementary will also have an online learning plan in place for its student to help balance their workload. Additionally, the school has several student services available including special education, instructional technology, ESOL, speech, gifted education, counseling and much more.

Poole’s Mill Elementary was built with the hopes to relieve overcrowding at existing schools in the area including Coal Mountain, Kelly Mill, Sawnee, Matt and Silver City elementary schools. SR Homes communities included in the new rezoning for Poole’s Mill Elementary include Montebello, Churchill Crossing and Chimney Creek, the newest Cumming community located off of Pisgah Road. Children residing at these Cumming communities also attend top-rated Forsyth County schools including Liberty Middle and West Forsyth High.
