Osborne is the oldest high school in Cobb, according to the school’s website. It opened in 1881 as Olive Springs Community School and moved to its current location on Favor Road near Smyrna in 1962.

Marc Smith, the district’s chief technology and operations officer, said the new performing arts center is part of the district’s overhaul of the campus.
