     Due West Elementary is a wonderful neighborhood school located 7 miles due west of downtown Marietta, Georgia. Approximately 600 students in grades kindergarten through fifth grade attend the school.   In 2018, Due West Elementary School ranked better than 93.6% of elementary schools in Georgia. It also ranked 11th among 65 ranked elementary schools in the Cobb County School District.    The students, faculty and community embraces its school nickname, the Pioneers, and uses it as an inspiration for high achievement and blazing new trails. With a dedicated staff, an actively involved community, and students with a strong desire to learn, Due West is a great place to be!
