Ola Elementary History
  Old Ola School Site Pictures  

The Ola community can be traced back to its religious roots at Sardis Baptist Church (1823), Sharon Baptist Church (1824) and Mt. Bethel Methodist organized in 1833. A farming community growing fields of cotton, several general stores interspersed at various crossroads, and feed/grain mills represented the Ola of long ago. One-room schoolhouses met the early educational needs of the children.

The Ola School with two frame buildings was torn down and replaced by the J.B. Henderson Elementary School in 1954. The "new" school had four multi-grade classrooms. Several additional classrooms were built over the next several decades.

In August of 1999 the "new" Ola Elementary opened not only with a new building, but with a newly renovated building for kindergarten and first grade students. The school population continues to grow yearly as it is located in one of the fastest growing areas of Henry County.
