Our Main Campus houses our 3rd through 5th grade students. Our wonderful Backyard is the result of countless hours of effort from staff, parents, students and local community members who enjoy the space in non-school hours. Our campus is conveniently located on the corner of W. Wesley, Howell Mill and Dover Road. A perfect location!
The Main Campus hosts a full array of classrooms, each equipped with 21st Century technology, in addition to a bustling Media Center, Fine and Performing Arts classrooms, and a gymnasium. Additionally the Main Campus maintains a full computer lab along with a Mac and iPad cart for student use.

Situated on a wooded lot in the Margaret Mitchell neighborhood, Brandon Primary Center is home to our littlest Bees, our Kindergarten, First and Second Grade students. Opening its doors in August 2009 with a renovation that was completed in August 2016, Brandon Primary is a remarkable renovation of the former Margaret Mitchell Elementary School, which served generations of Atlantans since 1954. With impressive state-of-the-art aesthetic upgrades and Silver LEED certification, the existing building was completely renovated from top to bottom. The campus is designed to accommodate up to 450 children in 25 kindergarten, first and second grade classrooms. Currently, there are 20 active classrooms. Each one is outfitted with computers that use the Linux Operating System, as well as a Promethean Board. The Primary Center also includes an art room, music room, media center/library, cafeteria, auditorium/gymnasium and facility space for speech, ESOL and other special needs students.
In addition to the neighborhood setting and lovely classroom views, the students enjoy two playgrounds which have been specifically designed to suit the needs of kindergarten, first and second grade children. The playgrounds are equipped with an adaptive swing and ramps to allow access and play opportunities to children of all abilities.
Brandon Primary Center provides a unique and nurturing learning environment specifically for our younger students before “graduating” to 3rd grade at our Main Campus, less than 2 miles away.
