Druid Hills High School is one of the oldest schools in the DeKalb County School District; it was founded in the Fishburne Building on the Emory University campus in 1914 as a school for faculty’s children. In 1928 the K-11 school was moved to its current site at 1798 Haygood Drive.

Our mission includes working with all stakeholders to provide a variety of educational opportunities in a safe, supportive learning environment where all students can acquire the knowledge, skills, and values to become self assured, responsible citizens in an ever-changing global society.

In the 2004-2005 school year, Druid Hills had the distinction of becoming an International Baccalaureate school. The IB Diploma Programme provides an intellectually rigorous and academically demanding pre-university curriculum that emphasizes global content and language development.

Recent honors include the 2006 Governor’s Cup for the best SAT score improvement in the state of Georgia, the 2007 Platinum Award from the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement, the 2008 High Schools That Work Gold Achievement Award, 2008 Georgia School of Excellence in Student Achievement, and listings in Newsweek’s 1300 Top U.S. High Schools for four consecutive years.
