Booker T. Washington High School, named for the famous educator, opened in September 1924 under the auspices of the Atlanta Board of Education, with the late Charles Lincoln Harper as principal. It is the first public high school for African-Americans in the state of Georgia and the Atlanta Public Schools. Booker T. Washington High School is composed of three small schools:
Early College (Mr. George Rutledge, Principal)
Health, Science, & Nutrition (Dr. Sam Scavella, Principal)
After receiving hundreds of votes and exhibiting stellar athletic ability on the field, the Washington High School bulldogs were recently selected as Fox 5’s High 5 Sports Team of the Week during the month of October.
Atlanta Public Schools parents are encouraged to participate in the Georgia Parent Survey administered by the Georgia Department of Education.Data from the Georgia Parent Survey will be used along with the Georgia Student Health Survey and the Georgia School Personnel Survey to calculate the School Climate Star Rating within the College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI).
The Georgia Parent Survey has 20 questions and should take no more than 5 - 10 minutes to complete it. Data results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.
