Stone Mountain High School has been serving the community for over 100 years. It became a public school around the turn of the century, and was originally called the DeKalb High School.

Stone Mountain High Values

Our goal is to create an environment in which every student can be successful regardless of his or her socio-economic status, culture, physical challenges, or diverse family background. We will continue to create and maintain avenues of communication and support with the community and with parents. We believe in fostering pride in one's background and heritage and that one of our tasks is to help students maintain cultural identity while acquiring skills necessary to work effectively with all segments of society.
