Abney's School History


W. C. Abney Elementary 
Georgia School of Excellence

W.C. Abney Elementary School in Dallas, Georgia, is located in the New Hope community of Paulding County, approximately 45 miles northwest of Atlanta. The New Hope community has historically been small and rural but in the last decade has become a fast growing suburban area.

Abney began as a one room school known as New Hope School in the late 1800's.  For fifty four years, Abney was located along Dallas-Acworth Hwy.  The new Abney facility was built in 2009-2010.  It is currently the largest elementary school in the county and could house up to 1200 students.  

Our school currently houses thirty four kindergarten through fifth grade classrooms. We are ready for future growth. 
W.C. Abney's primary strength is a unified staff with a vision of high achievement for all students. The school motto, "Abney Eagles Soaring Together," expresses our shared commitment to student success.
