The school does great things for children with disabilities, but one division, the Kenan Pre-School isn't on par with the rest of the school due in large part to the laziness of the lead teachers and Program Coordinator. They talk the talk, but don't walk the walk. I would give the other divisions 5 stars, but I am being nice in offering Kenan a mere 3 stars.

My child was a student in the Hamm Center for hearing impaired children. This is an amazing school. The teachers are very dedicated, great expertise, quick response to concerns. Everyday they bring excellent instruction to the classroom. While it is quite expensive, it is worth it. Many adults are amazed that my child is deaf.

Atlanta Speech School is an amazing school that helps children in a variety of areas. The school has several "schools" under one roof. They have the Kenan Pre-school which I believe is the best pre-school in Atlanta. The Wardlaw school helps children Kindergarten-6th grade with learning disabilities. This school has been a life saver for my children. They have learned so much through amazing faculty and teachers. The teacher student ration is 3-1. It is expensive but it has changed my childrens lives. They love to learn. Before they were frustrated and discouraged. I would recommend this school to anyone who is having learning problems.

The Atlanta Speech School is an awesome school that works with children who are hearing impaired and/or deaf and have a cochlear implant. It is a private school and the cost is high, but there is financial aid that is offered, but it still does not come close to covering what it actually cost to educate these children. Children who are deaf can learn to talk and learn language; how awesome is that! Additionally, The Atlanta Speech School works with children who have a learning disability associated with language/reading and a mainstream pre-school. The Atlanta Speech School is a very warm, friendly environment that gives the feeling of being a family instead of a business or institution. It is an environment I would want my child to learn and grow in if they needed any specailized care associated with speech or language development.

I'm not a parent--I'm a former student, and I can attest to the fact that this school is, without a doubt, an EXCELLENT resource for the hard of hearing and deaf. I went to the Atlanta Speech School from age two to age five, and to this very day, people who meet me for the first time never guess that I'm hearing impaired unless I tell them. I highly recommend this school to any parent hoping to teach their hard of hearing or deaf child how to speak well.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
