About School


Pitner Elementary Home of the Patriots.png

Welcome to Pitner!

Pitner Elementary is located in Acworth, a nothern suburb of Atlanta, Georgia.  We opened in the fall of 2003 to relieve several overcrowded neighboring schools, and were named for former Cobb County Board of Education long-time member Harmon Wayne "Buck" Pitner.  

Mr. Pitner was a school board member for twelve years, worked in the Acworth banking community for over 44 years, was a member of the Acworth  City Council, and served at Acworth United Methodist Church.  Like its namesake, our school is known for pride in the community, commitment, and service!

Staff describe our community as:

  • CARING.  We are a family where everyone cares, everyone pitches in, and we celebrate our kids and their accomplishments past the year we taught them.
  • DIVERSE.  Our students and staff are diverse and we honor culture, heritage, and the richness that each student, family, and staff member bring to our school.
  •  COMMITTED.  We have multiple staff members who have served at Pitner since it opened in 2002!  Others have spent over a decade invested in our students.
  • FORTUNATE WORK WITH THE BEST KIDS!  Our kids are AWESOME!  They work hard, want to learn, and are the best!  WE LOVE OUR PITNER PATRIOTS!

We are proud of our Pitner Patriots and look forward to sharing our amazing school with you!
