Located in middle Georgia, Lamar County boasts a rich educational heritage. A relatively new county formed in 1920, our current school facilities were begun in 1975 and were formed from many community schools that existed over the years: Aldora School, Barnesville High Industrial School, Booker School which changed to Forsyth Road School, Gordon Military Academy, Milner School, and Thomaston Street School. Senator Richard B. Russell is numbered among Gordon Military's prominent alumni. We serve over 2500 students in one school at each grade span: Primary [PreK-2], Elementary [3-5], one Middle School [6-8], and High School [9-12]. We are proud to have Gordon College, Southern Crescent Technical College, and Gordon GYSTC as teaching and learning partners.
