About the School

J.S. Abrams School was built in 1960 to serve grades 7-12.  In 1980, a new J.S. Abrams Primary School was built.  After building the new primary school, J.S. Abrams High School served grades 6-12 until 1987.  In 1987, the high school closed; sixth grade scholars became a part of Abrams Primary School.  Seventh and eighth grade scholars transferred to J.A. Davis Middle School and 9th-12th grade scholars transferred to Jess Lanier High School.

The J.S. Abrams High School building became a part of the Abrams Primary School, which is now known as J.S. Abrams Elementary School serving grades K-5.
