Sprayberry High School was founded the day after Labor Day in 1952 in Cobb County, Georgia, United States.

The high school was originally founded in the building now occupied by the The Walker School (a private school), on Cobb Parkway at the north corner of Allgood Road. It is now located on the west corner of Sandy Plains Road at Piedmont Road. Since then, the area historically known as Sandy Plains has come to be known as Sprayberry, stretching somewhat northeast from the intersection to Post Oak Tritt Road, and to the Sprayberry post office at Ebenezer Road.
