From The Daily Tribune News: 

"For Bartow County School Board member Anna Sullivan, the 115,000-square-foot building at 118 North Franklin St. in Adairsville isn't just a new schoolhouse.

'This piece of land and this beautiful building represents so much more than bricks and glass and pavement and grass in this community,' said the board's District 5 representative. 'This represents a new day in education for our community, but it also represents a very special homecoming. This is the site where, almost continuously, generations of our community have been educated for almost 100 years.'

Construction on the $18.9 million facility began in late 2016 and wrapped up in July. Bartow County School System (BCSS) Director of Maintenance and Construction Pankaj Daiya said the new building is about 66 percent larger than the elementary school at 122 King St., which opened close to four decades ago."
