Glenwood Primary School is a pre-kindergarten through second-grade school located in the northern section of Floyd County. It is one of four schools in the Armuchee school district. The Armuchee/Glenwood school district extends from the Rome city limits northeast to the Gordon County line and northwest to the Chattooga County line. Although it can be categorized as a rural school, some students live in a suburban atmosphere while others in the northernmost area of the county live on large tracts of land used for farming.
The school evolved from the consolidation of several nearby schools in 1927. A simple wood frame structure was built on Highway 27 to house elementary through junior high grades. Several years later, when Armuchee High School burned, Glenwood accommodated 10th through 12th grades as well. As the Armuchee/Glenwood community grew, education needs grew with it. In 1955, a new facility was completed on the current 12-acre site located on Old Dalton Road. The original structure consisted of seven classrooms, a library, music room, cafeteria, storage room, office, teacher’s lounge, and first aid room. The school served grades one through eight as the high school students returned to Armuchee High School. Over the years, several renovations have been completed, and the current structure contains 37 classrooms. Classrooms include a music room, art room, computer lab, and a parent center. The grounds include a gymnasium, walking track, picnic area, butterfly garden, playgrounds, and an outdoor arts center. After completing second grade, students transition to Armuchee Elementary School to continue their education.
