History:

Bascomb Elementary School is located in Woodstock, Cherokee County, Georgia approximately 30 miles north of Atlanta. Bascomb opened in 1995 as a K – 6 school when the growth in the Towne Lake community required an additional elementary school to alleviate overcrowding. Bascomb opened with 1150 students and quickly grew over the next 5 years to 1,700+ to become the largest elementary school in the state of Georgia. Because the other elementary schools in the Etowah Zones were also overcrowded, Chapman Intermediate School opened in 2000 for grades 5 & 6 and Bascomb became a K – 4 school. With the opening of the new ET Booth Middle School facility as a 6 – 8 school in 2013-14, fifth grade returned to Bascomb.
