Bolivar Elementary School was built in 1962 on a twenty-one acre tract of land on Nuckolls Road. The 60,000 square foot building was the second of its kind in the southeast with a thermal environment. In 1972, a new building, affectionately referred to as the ABC Building, was constructed on the west side of the original structure to house Kindergarten and 1st and 2nd grades. The ABC Building now houses Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and 1st grade. In 1979, eight additional classrooms were added to the northwest wing and the PACE classrooms were added to the southwest wing of the main building. Eight additional classrooms were added to the north end of the ABC Building that same year. In 1999, a new wing consisting of fifteen classrooms and administrators’ offices were added to the main building, and four classrooms were added to the north end of the ABC Building. In 2005, a gymnasium was added to the campus. That building includes a nurse’s station, a multipurpose room, and a basketball court with six goals. There is also a stage located at the north end of the basketball court. The gymnasium was attached to the building housing grades four and five; however, it is easily accessible for all other grades as well.
