About Tritt Elementary School

 

 

 

 

Our beautiful and spacious school is located at 4435 Post Oak Tritt Road in Marietta, GA, on a picturesque twenty-four acre site in northeast Cobb County. Construction began in the fall of 1979 and was completed in the fall of 1980. Tritt opened in September of 1980. The centrally air-conditioned and heated facility is primarily of brick and houses kindergarten through fifth grade students in self-contained classrooms. The building has several structural advantages including a personnel services suite, individual study rooms, storage rooms, teacher workrooms, a spacious media center, and a clinic staffed by a nurse sponsored by the PTA.

Tritt Elementary School was named for Will Tritt (born February 1, 1887 - died February 12, 1955). Mr. Tritt was a lifelong resident of the Tritt school area. He was a strong advocate of public education. He served as a trustee for Mountain View School from 1938 to 1945. He held a strong belief that the whole purpose of learning should be to apply knowledge in new and better ways toward the advancement of mankind. Mr. Tritt also believed that the fabric of our lives depended upon a tight interweaving of both knowledge and wisdom. We believe that the educational foundation we provide for the children in our community is consistent with the educational beliefs of Mr. Will Tritt.

Tritt Elementary School is one of 66 elementary schools in the Cobb County School System. Tritt provides educational instruction for children from kindergarten through the fifth grade. Tritt is the feeder school to Hightower Trail Middle School for the 6th through 8th grades and Pope High School for 9th through 12th grades.

In 1991, Tritt received the Georgia Association of Elementary School Principals' School Bell Award for our accomplishments in implementing programs in the area of global education. In 1992, Tritt was selected as a National Talents Demonstration School and was recognized by Cobb County School Board. In 1994, Tritt was selected as one of ten Pay for Performance schools in Georgia. In 2005, Tritt was certified as a National PTA School of Excellence.
