HISTORY OF JEFFERSON DAVIS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

Davis Elementary School's Philosophy is to inspire all students to cultivate marketable 21st century skills. These skills include reading, writing, mathematics, computer knowledge, collaboration and the integrity of being a responsible and productive citizen.

The Davis Elementary School building, located on the corner of Cotton and Church Streets, had its beginning in May 1990. The initial plans and contract were awarded to J. F. Baines of Greenville. Plans called for a two story, brick and stone construction. The first floor was to consist of six classrooms, offices, hallways, and vestibules: the second floor to consist of a large chapel, two classrooms and a library. Also included were furnace rooms and two play rooms.

The initial building was constructed at a cost of $17,444. Another $1,312 was spent for heating costs. The land purchase price was $500 per acre with the total cost being $2, 031.26. The cornerstone of the building was laid on Tuesday, October 19, 1900 by members of the Greenwood Masonic Order. This signaled the official opening of the school. Read More>>
