Mountain Park Elementary

Full Description


Mountain Park Elementary is located at 1500 Pounds Road in Lilburn. The school opened in the fall of 1966 and has served a population as small as 370 in grades 1–7 and as high as 1,024 in grades K–5. The school, which originally had 14 classrooms, was built to relieve overcrowding at Snellville Elementary. At that time, the school served a section of the county presently within the attendance zones of Arcado Elementary, Camp Creek Elementary, Mountain Park Elementary, and Lilburn Elementary. All of the above schools were built in later years to relieve Mountain Park Elementary School. By 1995, the enrollment grew to 633 students in grades K–5.

The current enrollment is approximately 600 students. The school has had three additions to the building, as well as a renovation to the original building. Mountain Park Elementary, which was named for the local community of Mountain Park, has a quiet, serene campus conducive to learning.

Over the years, Mountain Park Elementary has experienced many changes. When the school opened, Brownlee Road and Pounds Road were dirt roads. It is said that one rainy day, a parent had to take a tractor and pull a school bus out of the mud. This is a very different scene than what is found on today’s busy roads near the school.

Another stark difference is in the amenities available in the school. In 1966, the school opened with no office furniture. The principal brought a card table and his typewriter from home. Today, Mountain Park Elementary teachers have laptop computers and students benefit from instructional technology labs.
