Washington High School (Atlanta)

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 was the first public high school for African-Americans in the state of Georgia and the Atlanta Public Schools system.Booker T. Washington High School was transformed into four small schools. Starting in the fall of 2014, the school transitioned back to the original one school, with four assistant principals, one academy leader, and one principal.Administration Dr. Tasharah Wilson, Principal Antonio Mattox, Assistant Principal, Ninth Grade Yvette Williams, Assistant Principal, Tenth Grade Tracy Harrell, Assistant Principal, Eleventh Grade Kimberly Moore, Assistant Principal, Twelfth Grade Joseph Williams, Academy Leader, CTAE & Fine ArtsHistoryDesigned by Atlanta-born architect Eugene C. Wachendorff, the building incorporates medieval and Byzantine elements, including the dramatic main entrance with five arches in two tiers. Six additions have been made to the original four-story building, which is situated on 21.4acre of land. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.It is fitting that visitors pass the statue of the school's namesake on the way to the entrance. One of the foremost black educators of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Booker T. Washington was born into slavery in 1856 on a small farm in Virginia. He founded the Tuskegee Institute in 1881.
