School Information

 Mrs. Ruth Hill
In the early 1950’s, Newnan resident Mrs. Ruth Hill was approached about 
donating land she owned for the construction of a new school. The neighborhood 
had outgrown a nearby structure, Mount Sinai Baptist Church that served 
children in first through fourth grades. Mt. Sinai was part of the 
Newnan Public School System with four teachers on staff.
A seven room wooden structure was originally built on the 
property donated by Mrs. Hill, located on Keith Street. With ten 
teachers now on staff, the school became known as Ruth Hill School.  
This facility soon became overcrowded and the original wooden 
structure was replaced by the present brick building, completed 
in 1956. Mrs. Hill passed away during construction, but the new 
facility was named Ruth Hill School in her memory.
In the summer of 1987, the school underwent a major remodeling 
effort that included air conditioning, new carpet and paint.  
New bathrooms, office space, and a media center were added to 
the facility, as well. In 1994, a fine arts building was also 
erected on the growing campus.
During the 2005-2006 school year, Ruth Hill School experienced
a significant renovation project. A new classroom wing, cafeteria, 
and office space were completed in addition to a new entrance and 
parking lot. The remainder of the building received a major facelift 
that included new lighting, flooring, and paint.
Since a redistricting in 1988-89, Ruth Hill has housed elementary 
grades, kindergarten through fifth.  Enrollment has remained 
steady at slightly more than 450 students.
