West End Academy was established in 1884. The sale of one-half of a city block, bounded by Lee, Dunn, Gordon, and Zachary streets, provided funds for the construction of a two and one-half story frame building. Tuition for residents of West End or unincorporated Fulton County was lower than for the residents of the City of Atlanta. West End was an incorporated town at the time. On January 1, 1894, the town of West End was absorbed into the Atlanta City government. Shortly after this time, the upper grades of the Academy gave way to Girl's High School, Boy's High School, and Tech High School. The frame structure was replaced by Lee Street and Peeple Street Grammar School. Additional historical information about West End Academy has not been determined.
