About Sprayberry

Sprayberry High School is located in Marietta, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. We are a comprehensive senior high school (grades 9-12) with a current enrollment of approximately 1700 students. The school opened in 1952 at a location on Cobb Parkway and then moved to the current location at 2525 Sandy Plains Road in 1973. We are proud that Sprayberry is a microcosm of Cobb County in that we serve students from a variety of ethnic groups, socio-economic levels, and academic abilities.

Our success has been measured by consistently high scores on the SAT, Georgia High School Graduation Test, and State End-of-Course Tests. We have made AYP every year since its introduction, and in 2011 we were named a Georgia School of Excellence. We were also recognized with a Platinum Level Award by the Governor's Office (one of only a handful of schools who were recognized for both highest achievement and greatest gains).

We have been featured in Atlanta Magazine, Newsweek, and the Washington Post as one of the best high schools in the city and in the nation.
