Addison Elementary School opened its doors for the first
time in August, 1988. The school was named for Cobb County
educator and businessman, Walter Pinkney (W. P.) Addison.
Addison became Georgia's first Charter School in 1995.
Subsequent Charter renewals in 1998, 2003 and 2008 have
ensured high academic achievement for all Addison students.
W. P. Addison was an educator and a successful businessman.
He was a man of vision with a strong commitment to
excellence in all that he did. In the mid 1920's, the only
schools in Cobb County were a few one-room school houses
scattered over the county. Mr. Addison wanted a better
educational system for his own children as well as all
children throughout the county.
Addison houses approximately 600 students grades K-5 from
the neighborhoods surrounding the school. Students will
attend JJ Daniell and Simpson Middle Schools and Sprayberry
