About our School
Shakerag Elementary School, located in the northeastern tip of Fulton County, opened its doors in August 1997. Our students reside in homes that are situated in over 27 neighborhoods in the rural setting surrounding the school. The area has grown substantially, predominantly in the development of subdivisions, small shopping centers, churches, and the Johns Creek Technology Center, a vast compilation of technology-centered businesses.
The name, Shakerag, was selected because of its historical significance within the local community. Some speculate that the name refers to the rag one shakes to tell passing trains, and maybe stage coaches, to stop to get the mail. Another famous legend centered around a bobcat that terrorized the community’s laundry. The women would do their laundry and hang the clothes to dry out back overnight. During the night, an animal would rip the laundry off the line and, shaking the clothes to rags, scatter the laundry over the backyard. One night, one of the residents saw a bobcat shaking the rags, and then everyone knew who was shaking their rags. They let the bobcat go, and the community got its name.
