New Bethany Bend High School In Milton Georgia Names Principal For Opening!

The Fulton County board of education has named
Ed Spurka as the Principal for the new Bethany Bend High School in Milton, Georgia.

Bethany Bend is scheduled to open its doors in August of 2012. Ed Spurka is currently the principal at Roswell High School.
The announcement comes right before the start of the redistricting process, which will create new attendance zones for the area high schools.

Bethany Bend High School Milton Georgia
The school board felt it was important to have a principal in place prior to the redistricting process, especially someone like Mr. Spurka , who is a well known, liked and respected figure in the North Atlanta community. This is sure to excite local parents and students who may be part of the boundary change as Ed Spurka will be a familiar face.

The school board typically looks to veteran principals to open new schools, as it becomes a challenge to pull off the opening of a school, of this size and magnitude. At this time, Ed Spurka is the longest serving principal among area High Schools.

For More About Area North Atlanta Schools

Spurka’s tenure at Roswell High School has been met with great success, as the school has excelled in academics and sports while under his watch, including being listed in Atlanta Magazine as one of the top High School’s in the Metro Atlanta area.

Spurka will be extremely busy over the next couple of months, as he will finish the school year at Roswell High, while at the same time forming a local community committee to help develop the school’s identity, color’s and mascot.

Bethany Bend High School Milton Georgia
On a personal note, I drive by the new Milton High School on a daily basis and it is a mammoth site. They are just finishing up on the foundation and grading. Framing should be going up in the next month. I will keep you posted!

New Bethany Bend High School Location-Anxiety And Rumors Abound!

With less than 18 months before the new Bethany Bend High School opens in Milton Georgia, rumors and anxiety over the boundary and attendance lines have started. Fulton School officials are adamant that attendance and boundary lines have not been established and have created a process that will seek community input before coming up with a redistricting proposal.

The Fulton School System has set up and scheduled a series of three meetings where local residents can attend and voice their opinions.

The 3 meetings are planned from 7pm to 9pm at the Alpharetta High School.
-February 23rd
-March 16th
-April 13th

For More Information On Bethany Bend Redistricting

The first meeting will provide the community with board approved criteria that shows how boundary lines are determined. Local Milton residents will take part in small group meetings to voice opinions and provide their input. This information will be used by the planners to develop draft maps which are then presented at the next meeting on March 16th at Alpharetta High School.

At the second meeting, local Milton residents will again be able to voice opinion and input on the maps, and based on input, will present this refined proposal at the third meeting on April 13th at Alpharetta High School.

After these meetings are finished, the Fulton School Board will likely receive the staff recommendation sometime in May with final approval around June or early July, giving parents and students of the Milton area over 1 year of advance notice of the new boundary and attendance lines.

A 2009 Post Written November 13th About Bethany Bend High School Plans and Location

Typically, the school system appoints a principal a year in advance of the opening of the new Milton High School in order to allow the new principal to become involved with the community and its residents to work with each other in creating the naming of the Milton High School, as well as selecting the school’s mascot and team colors, which are critical to the identity and uniqueness of every school.

One interesting policy that has just been updated regards how rising Sophomores, Junior’s and Senior’s can determine whether or not they wish to change Milton, Ga. schools based on the new boundary and attendance line. These students have the option to remain at their current school if they feel moving to the new school will create too much of an emotional burden because of friendships that may not transfer with them based on the new lines.

Within the City of Milton Georgia, to a small group of residents, the new plans for Bethany Bend High School were revealed. This Schools projected redistricting process for Fulton Schools will begin in 2011, a year prior to the opening of Bethany Bend High.

Bethany Bend High School’s total acreage is 65 acres with 25 acres remaining undisturbed and half of the usable land will be devoted to playing fields and landscape design. A Sports Complex, which can seat up to 3,700 spectators will accommodate a football, soccer, track and field, softball, baseball, lacrosse and tennis, as well.

For Homes For Sale In The 30004 Zip Code-Both Milton High And Bethany Bend

The cost of Bethany Bend High has now totaled $70 million and can accommodate up to 1,900 students, scheduled to open its doors in the fall of 2012. It appears, at this time, that there will be only 2 entrances into the school,1 off Cogburn Road and the second entrance off Bethany Bend. Restrictions do not allow for a Highway 9 entrance, which residences were hoping for.

Plans for the design of Bethany Bend High School will have the grandness resembling Milton High School’s Columns and a Johns Creek Clock Tower look alike. It has been said that the design actually resembles a ski lodge with heavy beams, dark woods and stone accents. Described as a “Main Street” design. This new high school will relieve the overcrowded conditions at Milton High School, which is estimated to have 2,800 students by 2011.

UPDATE!! Board of Education Abandons Freemanville High School Site!!

The Board of Education announced they have moved its plans for a High School off Freemanville Road in Milton. It seems the two factors that led to the announcement is the community complaints from deep pocketed neighbors along with a preferred parcel that became available.

The school system has now purchased the 64 acre parcel of land at the southeast corner of Bethany Bend and Cogburn Road, from local developer David Chatham, where it will build the new high school.


The preferred parcel, also in Milton, was originally slated for housing, but due to the continued weak demand for new construction, David Chatham went back to the school board and offered it for sale.

Visit Current David Chatham Communities

The original 117 acre parcel on Freemanville Road will still hold the middle school, with any unneeded acreage to be eventually sold off for other development.

The new Milton High School will sit directly across from
Kings Ridge Christian School
and has easy access to Highway 9 and the Georgia 400.
