The Atlanta School provides children an excellent education by touching all aspects of development. TAS teaches kids to read and do math and think critically, through showing them the world and helping them process, analyze and express their experiences. Field trips to historical sites, natural spaces, cultural destinations, as well as regular participation in graphic and performing arts, are not add-on luxuries at TAS, but are essential tools of the curriculum itself. I have been associated with the school for many years (first as an employee and older sister to a child enrolled), and the children who have passed through have become successful adults in many areas - the arts, finance, microbiology - and are universally creative thinkers and engaged in their communities. Now that I am a parent, when I leave my daughter there in the morning, I rest assured that she will be not only cared for and not even just adequately stimulated educationally, but that the TAS community will exposed her to the vibrant, wide world and will challenge to embrace it in her own way.
