My husband and simply LOVE Imhotep Academy my daughter has attend since she was 3 yeas old she is now 9. The academics is fabulous. They challenge the students on a daily basis. Everyday is a teachable moment at Imhotep. The children are taught not be afraid and try are capable of doing so many things. The information my child is learning in elementary school did not happen for until I was in high school. It takes a village to raise a child that is what Imhotep is offering. Thank you for who you are.
This school has been the best educational experience for my children, especially my boys. The expectations for learning is high and students are pushed to excel in a nurturing and family-oriented environment.
The Imhotep Academy has been a great school for all 3 of my children. I cannot say enough about the level of academic provided. I applaud the teachers and administration for thier continue dedication. I recoment this school for anyone looking to excel thier childs education.
I am a current parent of a 3rd grader at Imhotep and I PROUDLY support the endeavors of the committed parents of this school. As I watch my son go through the doors of Imhotep every morning...I breathe a sigh of relief because I'm confident in the education that he is receiving and that I'm leaving him with an administration that treats him like he belongs to them. When it is time for my son to apply to a preparatory high school, no one is going to ask "WHO REMODELED YOUR 3RD GRADE CLASSROOM?" But..they will ask about his TEST SCORES! This administration provides an environment where PROVEN academic excellence is the standard..not the exception and they have done it for 20 years! I applaud the teachers, the administration and the parents of Imhotep!
Please don't waste your/child's time or money. The school lacks a strong admin. The admin is afraid to let the teachers use technology. Most of the teachers lack passion and creativity. Parents had to basically fund to remodel a classroom so that 2nd/3rd grade could have their own space.( The school had the parents pay 100% of the cost) The school has a high turn over rate. Can't seem to keep good teachers!
Attention all parents, please disregard this school for your children. Thre are only about 39 children in 4-8th grade, and many teachers are not committed to teaching.
Imhotep teaches one year above school level and supposedly adheres to the national standards but it is not evident with the type of instruction that my child received in the fourth grade. One major problem is that the school does not appear to have any written standards that the teachers can follow. The math instruction for 4th through 8th grade is terrible. My advice to anyone considering sending their child to the school is to find a good public school because the school is not worth the money.
Excellent school, great administration, My 2 children has gone since age 3 1/2(both are 9 and 7) now. We left for 1 yr do to financial reason and I regretted them leaving, but will be returning to Imhotep in Fall 08. PUBLIC schools is not worth the risk. APS should be called Social Dysfunctional Schools instead of Public schools.
Wow where do I start. All 3 of my children have attended this school since Pre - K. The academic foundation and critical thinking skills received at Imhotep has been wonderful. My children love the accelerated learning environment that challenges them everyday to be their best. The teachers are nurturing and truly care about the success of my children. I come from a family of educators and would recommend Imhotep for any child.
My children have been enrolled at this school for 3 years. Overall my experience has been fairly positive. This school is designed for the child that is capable of learning in a fast pace environment, if your child does not fall within that range then this school would not be a good fit, if your child needs a little more one on one then you may need to look elsewhere for a smaller setting, and/or a slower pace. For the amount of tuition all the teachers should be certified and there should be smaller class sizes. There is no parent teacher organization and often times it's difficult to meet with the teachers uninterupted even with an appointment. Overall the school has been great in terms of teaching the children self & cultrual awareness and responsibility.
I have really enjoyed this setting for my children. The teachers are young and energetic and the administrators are definitely hands on! You know your child's academic standing at all times because of the consistency in progress reports as well as the 'drop in' policy of the school. We've been really pleased and will definitely enroll again.
I am extremely impressed with the education that my son is getting. He is a PK4 student. Today, he came home telling me what he learned about Black History. He knew about Rosa Parks, Garrett Morgan, and Jackie Robinson. I am appreciative of schools like these. Of course, the school is not perfect, but educating Black children is the focus, not disciple or the state test. We need more functional Afrocentric or African-centered schools. Trust me, it is for the betterment of our kids. Overall, my son and I are excited about the education he is receiving.
This is a very good schoo, however the principal needs to mentor and intervene with teachers when their approaches are not the best. We are debating if we will re-enroll our child in this school. The intensity on learning is great and I would recommend this scholl for most, however I think for some that may find the hands off approach of the administration more than lacking. The attitudes of some of the teachers need to be adjusted and mentored. Even good teachers need supervison.
For African American Children growing up in today's society, this the type of School that all parents should want for their children. Imohotep provides children with and advance level of education in every grade level. Students in Level K are testing at 2nd grade Levels. This School teaches young black children about their heritage, it teaches them that they had to work twice as hard to make it in this world, it teaches them responsibility for their actions and the consequences tied to their actions. The Teachers and the Administration truly cares for each and every child and love what they do. Parents are very actively involved and tuition is relatively inexpensive for the level of education that you receive. I would highly recommend this School to any parent who is looking to provide the Best Education for their Child.
I have 2 kids at this school preK and 1st grade, the teachers are great, the classroom sizes are too large for private, they need more teachers! and the administration needs a lot of work, it leaves a lot to be desired. Needless to say, I won't be re-enrolling. Tanzy
This school provides the students with the rigor to have academic success in all settings. Students are confident about their heritage and learning potential.
This school is perfect, it is a family type environment, international club, genius teachers, and black pride based, the curriculim is college prep and if my son wanted to he could skip high school and go straight to college from 8th grade.
This school is a great place for any student in Atlanta or Smyrna. Parents will love this school. Teachers are great, staff is great and worth the minimal tuition.
