  About The School  

History of AHS

Once upon a time, a small place named Douglas County faced a problem.  The county's two high schools could not fulfill the needs of a growing city.  The halls of Lithia Springs High School and Douglas County High School abounded with students.  As walking and moving to class became challenging, daring, or impossible the Board of Education tackled the problem.  Their decision was to build a new high school.  After a year of various paperwork, hard labor, and construction, Robert S. Alexander High School emerged in 1986-1987 for its first year.  The first principal was Mr. Randy Brittain.  Assistant principals were Linda Lumpkin, Ray Mansfield, and Ed McGhee.  The first senior class consisted of 36 students. The school was dedicated on January 11, 1987 at 3:30 p.m. in the Alexander gymnasium. 

Mr. Robert S. Alexander

Robert S. Alexander joined the Douglas County School System in 1946, as principal of Douglas County High School.  He taught there for 24 years.  Then he moved to the new school, Turner Middle, as principal, where he taught for 3 years.  Mr. Alexander was then elected Superintendent of Schools, where he served for 4 years.  All in all, Mr. Robert S. Alexander served the Douglas County School System for 31 years.  Mr. Alexander, after retiring from the school system, worked as a consultant for The Commercial Bank.  He worked in Public Relations and Business Development.  He was also involved in the many educational programs at The Commercial Bank, such as student loans and teacher awards. Mr. Alexander complimented the school on the academic program and student participation.  He stated, "I went into education to try to form better citizens from my students.  I was hard, but fair. "To have our school named after this much faceted man is a tribute to all who enter."
