Both of my daughters attend AGS and we could not be happier with their experience there. AGS is a challenging, supportive environment and my girls absolutely love it. The girls at AGS are confident and secure in who they are because the faculty truly listens and respects the girls, and the girls feel that! The global travel opportunities and internship programs offer such wonderful real-world experiences to the girls. So glad we found AGS!!!

We moved our daughter to AGS in 8th grade. I am a big believer in girl's education and the solid research behind it and though it would be a good fit for her. It's been even better than we imagined and she has absolutely transformed at AGS. In a few short months, she is more confident, more vocal, more outspoken -- it's been everything we had hoped for and more. AGS is a secret and hidden gem. Open your eyes to what a single sex education can do for your daughter ....

We moved our high school girl to AGS after she began complaining that being interested in math and science was "social suicide". She loves the collaborative learning environment at AGS; she has been encouraged to take Physics and Computer Science with seniors. When I asked her the difference between AGS and the neighboring private school where she was before, her answer was short and sweet: "They believe in me." Don't take my word for it. Read the research about single sex education and visit the school yourself.

We have been so in love with the AGS experience. As a woman it is so "rah, rah, girl power"; I wish i had gone to a single gender school when i was a young girl. We came to the school because my husband went to a single gender school and remembered the experience with fond memories and a great education. AGS has been no exception. We are looking forward to the Global Ed program and the intern program that are required of upper schoolers which will be part of the curriculum this school year. The classroom size is very personable and the teachers are able to pour into these girls in such a way that I have seen many of the girls come out of their shyness within just one school year including my own. Best schooling decision for all of my three children.

There is not much bullying here, and generally most people at this school are friendly. However, IF YOU LIKE MATH, DO NOT GO HERE. My daughter is now going to a public school and we have to pay for her tutoring to get her ready for an AP math class. She was in an advanced math class and received an A+, but the class did not cover nearly as much as her new school's class did. If you are into the liberal arts, this school may be a good fit but stay away if you are a math-lover!

We are so fortunate to be able to send our daughter to a private school and incredibly grateful that she goes to AGS. She is a senior and will graduate with a wealth of life lessons about how and what you can be in the world as well a real appreciation for who she is right now. I can't imagine that there is a school in Atlanta that does a better job of meeting a girl where she is and working with her as a team to harness all her potential.

AGS has been an incredible experience for our daughter. She loves school and has such a love of learning. We have seen such growth in her from one year to the next. She is truly thriving! The technology at the school is best in Atlanta, bar none. One of 50 schools in the country recognized by Apple. Teachers really care about the girls and teach in a way that girls learn. They are constantly reading and continuing their education on this subject. My daughter and we, as her parents could not be happier with the school and the outcomes that we are seeing from AGS, If you have a daughter, AGS is definitely worth looking at!!

Best school ever! So much support and amazing people and teachers. While at the Atlanta Girls School I blossomed it to a confident Girl with no limits for where I could and will go. AGS is one of those schools where every girl is kind and respectful. AGS teachers are kind and supportive by encouraging very girl to be her best advocate. It's only my first year there but hopefully many more to come. Not to mention every girl has amble opportunities to be her best self and to try many new things.

AGS is one of a kind in Atlanta, and it provided my girl with opportunities that she had not experienced at her previous independent school. The no-cut policy in middle school sports allowed her to try volleyball and swimming for the first time, which opened possibilities that led to club involvement and elected roles. She is now a successful sophomore at a leading university in the northeast and is thriving. Her success would not be possible without her caring teachers, coaches, and advisor at AGS. They knew her well and helped her reach further than she thought possible.

Save your money. The focus is not on academics but on some strange idea of how girls should learn. If your daughter is really smart, this is not a school that will encourage or promote individuality. I was sold on same gender education but very disappointed in how my child was treated. Extraordinarily high turnover with staff. 3 good teachers, the rest were marginal. This school caters to the lowest common denominator.

AGS is a one-of-a-kind school. GIrls feel completely free to be themselves, while faculty focus on helping them access their best selves. Students benefit from guidance in numerous intellectual pursuits (a larger percentage of graduates of this school attend top-ranked schools by Forbes than most Atlanta independent schools), but they also learn to lead and follow. Girls benefit from internship programs, global travel, no-cut athletics in middle school and much more. Because no boys are around, faculty can actively help girls practice strong intellectual inquiry and social problem-solving. Girl drama exists everywhere (because girl meanness in middle school is explained by both brain and hormonal science), but at AGS girls are called out when they exert social power inappropriately. Many girls at this school elect to go further in math and science than girls at co-ed schools. After their AGS and college careers, girls go on to become White House staff, attend medical school, pursue college counseling careers, become entrepreneurs, and more.

I would have to disagree whole-heartedly with the parent who stated that an AGS education is sub-par. I attended AGS for five years and had a wonderful experience. I found that it prepared me extremely well for the ivy-league university which I attended. The teachers are ALWAYS willing to stay after school to help students understand material. Teachers form relationships with the students, and often write them recommendations for jobs years after graduation. Because AGS is a growing school, it provides endless opportunities for leadership and community-building by the students themselves. These experiences, though not traditional "classroom-learning" are invaluable and will be useful for the rest of the students' lives. Parents: DO send your daughters to AGS!

My daughter is currently a 7 th grade student at AGS. Her first year was a year of unparalleled growth and personal discovery. I watched my daughter blossom into a full fledged athlete, scholar, actress, and Social butterfly. I saw her take risks and make many new friends. She didn't have any friends on day 1 but she quickly made them on all grade levels. Her teachers were extremely supportive and were available for after school tutoring. She was not afraid to run for office or try different sports. I truly believe in the mission of the school. The student teacher ratio last year was 9 to 1! I recommend this school without reservation.

I am going into freshman year, and I hope to stay for all of high school. I love this school! I have so many friends, and I really feel accepted. The teachers all genuinely care about us, and I know I have a few teachers that I wouldn't hesitate to go to if I had a problem. However, the school is not for everyone. It's a very small community with no boys. Girls who want to live huge social lives and go to football games and date wouldn't like this school. I am very happy here. Of course, you can't stop girls from gossiping, and there has been drama, but it has always been resolved before it got nasty. We still see boys; we have dances with a military academy, and socials, and we go to neighboring schools football gems.most girls have found that doing a n activity outside of school gives hem more time with boys, and most of my friend have discovered that high school boys aren't really all that great. If you want a real experience, try a shadow day. I really recommend it. To the reviewer who said their kid wasn't welcomed, I'm very sorry. I have never heard of anything like that happening. Honestly, I always se my friends being warm and open to all new students

In a sentence, There is no better school for your daughter in Atlanta. I am continually amazed and impressed by the growth I see in my daughter and her class mates. Their ability to advocate, defend, take risks, think for themselves and think outside the box is refreshing. The compassion and inclusiveness that they have amongst each other and for students outside AGS makes me proud. I have gotten so much more than I pay for and am completely happy with my choice. Of all the schools we visited, this one is hands down the most diverse independent school in the Atlanta area. The only thing lacking at AGS is the pretentiousness, snootiness and haughtiness that is ever so present at many other private institutions.

My daughter has been at AGS for 6 years and this is her senior year. I'm a single parent father so I wanted to put my daughter around positive female role models. It has been perfect, there are a few bad teachers anywhere you go but at AGS they are few. I was given an incredible financial aid deal and the most forgiving atmosphere I could imagine. My daughter has maintained an A average and made 2100 on the SAT, the colleges are calling. Do yourself a favor and look long and hard at AGS, for your little girl if you have done any kind of job as a parent at all she will excel.

My daughter is entering her 5th year at AGS. We are thrilled with the education she is receiving. The teachers are dedicated to each girl thoroughly understanding the material. They are available each afternoon for tutorial. Girls who participate and work hard are rewarded with a wide choice of the finest colleges and universities in the country. AGS is on the cutting edge of technology. These girls know how to use their computers to their best advantage but are constantly warned about the dangers and pitfalls of technology too. The recent changes in administration are positive and in the long term best interest of the school. There is a great team in place to continue the schools growth and keep AGS relevant in a fast changing world. Don't hesitate to send your daughter to AGS. It is the best life decision we have ever made for our daughters future.

I am a former parent of AGS. The summer before school began,there was a social for new and already students. A few of the AGS students said, "We like things just the way they are. We don't need any new students.". That was the beginning of my daughter's hellish experience at AGS. Attending an all girls school myself, loving it and growing confident through out those years is exactly what I wanted and expected for my daughter. After two years, she was completely torn down with no confidence emotionally or academically. No sense of community, no one was doing anything about the mean girls, teachers were definitely hit or miss and saw examples in the classroom that were opposite of building girls up and more like making them feel bad about themselves. If you need to build your confidence and have people encourage you and believe in you, this isn't the place for you. My daughter has never been the same since her experience at AGS and that's something I have to live with. I have to rate this school with 1 star to post this review but I'm really rating this school "0" stars.

Atlanta Girls' School provides its students with an excellent learning environment and opportunities to fly in their character, connections with the world, and in academics. The school's staff is filled with talented and understanding teachers. I have been able to identify my passions and run with them. I have learned to take risks in the walls of this school that have led me to take chances outside of school that have changed my life. I love the connections that students are able to connect with their teachers, and they help us embrace our education like no other teachers I have known. The sisterhood that I have experienced here is like none other, and I know that as I grow into an adult and make big choices for myself and the world, I will carry my education at AGS with me, and I'll come back and visit all the time! One statement that I live by, that is on a poster in my Biology teacher's classroom at AGS, goes like this: "The FUTURE depends on the PRESENT". I think Atlanta Girls' School is sculpting the female leaders of tomarrow, so the decision to enroll here promises a bright and endless future for the girls of today.

I am a current 8th grader at AGS, and am having a stellar experience. I have been selected by my classmates to be a Circle of Sisters, or a class leader. I have also had many other chances to experience class leadership. My teachers are always friendly and want me to do my best. They are willing to go the extra mile to help me get where I want to be academically. I have loved being at AGS, and I am planning on staying through high school.

This is my daughter's fourth year at the Atlanta Girls School. Her improved confidence and academic achievement testify to this schools' ability to bring out the best in students. She went from getting poor grades in math to being one of the best math students in her grade now. Teachers support her in every endeavor. It is the only school in Atlanta that actually teachs a full semester course in philantrophy. Their internship program is unlike any other in Atlanta. In my daughters Junior and Senior years, she will be doing two internships and an independent study all related to neuroscience that are carefully selected and monitored by an advisor whose sole job is to teach philanthrophy and develop these internships with the girls. My daughter is well on her way to attending a leading university.

I have been at Atlanta Girls School for about three years.(6-8) I feel that this school is A-1 in education but the social life hear is bad. There are cliques and plenty of branding. I call it branding when people brand a certain grade or group of people bad. AGS is great with academics but a sense of community between grades is not there.

This school is not only hypocritical but fake. Teachers only pay attention to who they want to pay attention. There is also unfair behaviors towards other people. They over exaggerate thing that are actually petty. They also act like when we gossip that we killed someone. No matter where you go someone is going to gossip. They also are very bias and accuse people for certain things. This school is over expensive and we're not even getting a good education. Academics are just typical.

I graduated from the Atlanta Girls' School in 2010 after attending since the 6th grade. I can whole-heartedly and without reservation say that not only is it the best thing that has ever happened to be, it was single-handedly responsible for turning me into the the well-read, confident individual I am today. That being said, it is a school in its infancy. Unlike surrounding private schools it does not yet have the benefit of many years of practice. If student and parent alike are willing to grow with and contribute to the school community, rather than complaining, it can be the most rewarding experience you can give your daughter.

My daughter attended AGS for 7th-10th grade. Now that she is at a different private school (TFS) I realize that the education she received while at AGS was adequate, but certainly not above ordinary. During her first 3 yrs at AGS, we paid the full tuition price, with no fin. aid. During her soph. yr at AGS, we rcv'd some fin. aid. One day my daughter came home and said she had been giggling with a classmate and her teacher stated, in front of the class, "I think people getting cheap tuition should be grateful to be in class with the other students and pay attention instead of messing around". Now, my daughter had no idea she was receiving any aid, so the only way this teacher knew is if it was broadcast by the adminstration. When I called her 'teacher' to ask if she did indeed announce this to the whole class, her reply was "we expect those kids going to AGS free (my daughter was not going free, I was still paying $14,400 yearly) to require less of the teachers attention than our other students". I then realized that I was paying over $1000 monthly for my daughter to receive an ordinary education with the benefit of being treated like trash by teachers. She did not return to AGS.

My daughter absolutely loves this school and I love it for her. It is Georgia's best kept secret in education. This school has brought out the best in her. Atlanta Girls' School encourages independence, confidence, leadership and out of the box thinking within all of the girls. We have great programs like Winterim, EDLS, STEM, Internships and the Capstone Project. There are so many opportunities for the girls to explore their passions and interests. Technology is incorporated into every aspect of their curriculum and the teachers are vested in the success of every girl. Come and see our school. You will be amazed!

My daughter absolutely loves going to school every day at AGS. She is in 6th grade and in just a few short weeks her self confidence has increased ten-fold. She is comfortable with all the students in her grade and her teachers. She has no problem asking for help (if needed) or conducting a student-lead conference. AGS focuses on leadership, technology, and helping girls find their voice so they can pursue any passion they might have. The teachers truly care about the girls and their education. They also help guide the girls thru the difficult middle school years by giving them the tools to deal with conflict and helping them resolve issues with confidence. I highly recommend AGS to any girl who wants to feel like she can "be herself" and be challenged in a great learning environment.

The Atlanta Girl's School offers a quality education that includes the best technologically integrated program in the city, supportive teachers and staff, and so many more opportunities for adolescent girls than they could possibly receive at any coed private school. TAS encourages a well rounded girl profile and creates a more confident teenageer. Our only complaint it that there is too much homework in HS. Having an average of four hours of homework seems incongruent with their philosophy and efforts of encouraging participating in sports, the arts, clubs, and civic pursuits.

I strongly warn anyone considering this school to do their due-diligence. AGS has pretty good packaging, but behind the scenes, this school is a great big mess! Make sure you ask the important questions: What are the qualifications of the teachers? How many years have the teachers taught (at AGS and in general)? What is the guiding philosophy of the school? Why has their been so much turn over in teachers and at the Head level? How are teachers trained to teach girls? Ask for specific examples of assignments and projects. Unfortunately, AGS has a true identity crisis. It doesn't know who it is, or who it wants to be! It seems that it is being led by those who are more interested in their leaving behind their own legacy, than providing a good education for the girls.

My daughter attended the school for 6 years. There were times during the eighth grade and her first year in high school when she wanted to leave AGS. During that period, several of her classmates left to attend coed public and private high schools. We did not rule out the option of going to another school, but we encouraged her to stay at AGS. This was not too difficult, because she had become so involved in various athletic and academic programs at the school, and was emotionally attached to the faculty and students. We were confident that we did the right thing and very pleased that she did not leave AGS. In hindsight, we are even more confident of our decision. During her first semester in college, her former AGS teachers and coaches sent a basket of treats to her dorm room. My daughter called to tell us about it, and was obviously very touched by the gesture. At least once whenever she is home from college, she visits AGS and is always greeted with open arms by the faculty and staff. She will graduate from college in a few months, and is an extremely confident, responsible, and happy young woman. There is no doubt that AGS gave her the warm, supportive, yet challenging, environment she needed to thrive.

We have two daughters in 6th and 9th grades at AGS. They feel supported, encouraged, and more is asked of them in their pursuits, whether it is in the classroom or as an athlete. Our daughters and their friends never feel undermined by either their peers or their educational experience, and as a result they are willing to stretch for brass rings they might have felt at another school were out of reach (joining an athletic team, taking an honors math course, leading in student government, advocating for themselves to a teacher, etc.). I love their quiet confidence in their own value. The education is topnotch: the students hone strong, creative problem-solving skills, and they learn to represent their thoughts respectfully, eloquently, and clearly in writing and speaking. As a parent, I can reflect that the community of parents is also warm, lively, interesting, and a lot of fun.

As the parent of a junior, I have been extraordinarily pleased with Atlanta Girls' School. The values of the school are on academic risk-taking, not risk-taking in negative ways. Having money, clothes or a high-flying social life is not what is valued. Students are down-to-earth and generally VERY supportive of each other. They have fabulous teachers because the best teachers usually like diversity and not having the answer to any proposal be 'but we've always done it this way!'. The sports program is superb, everyone can be an athlete. My daughter will have lots of great college options, and the best thing is that she is not spoiled like so many private school kids.

My daughter has been a student at AGS for three years. The middle school experience was, in general, positive. The high school experience has not been as positive. There appears to be a shift in the general philospohy of the school. The quality of teachers and experience level has declined and the extra curricular activities are not as extensive as one could find at other schools. There is diversity in the student population, but lack of diversity in thought or ideas. I would suggest that any parent proceed cautiously before making the financial investment in this school.

The Atlanta Girls' School far exceeded our expectations. Our daughter was there from 6th through 12th grade and it was well worth the investment! Having begun her Freshman year of college just a couple of weeks ago, our daughter's positive self-image has allowed us to only moderately assist, facilitate and oversee (mostly due to our desire to still feel needed and not wanting to let go) her affairs on campus because she is focused on her goals and determined to make her mark on humanity - she knows her possibilities are endless as she embraces the world during this next phase of her life... To the Leadership, Faculty and Staff: Thank You!!! The academic, social and psychological foundation you ve laid at the Girls School along with our vision for her is proving to have been a successful partnership!!!!!!!!!

The Atlanta Girls' School has been a great experience for my child. Along with becoming more outgoing she has a better image of herself. They put so much effort into making their students feel safe. I have found in my experience that most girls will try to look, for lack of a better word, dumber so they can keep their 'cute' factor. The AGS environment does take some adjusting to for those who aren't ready for the envirnment. I have also come to the conclusion that the girls who don't like it there are and I'm quoting my girl 'so difficult to deal with, and the efoorts to discipline students goes unnoticed. Every grade has someone who refuses to listen to authority, but AGS is still great' This sort of school doesn't come around very often so take advantage of the opportunnity and send you child to this school

The Atlanta Girls' School is absolutely the best school for a young girl. My daughter has been there since six grade, and we have absolutely loved it. Most schools speak of diversity, but AGS, does it like no other. Because of the small class sizes, the girls really get to appreciate and know different cultures that they might not otherwise experience. I think the biggest mistake people make is leaving to soon, before giving it a chance.If you do your research you'll understand why a single gender education is great for our daughters. If I had to do it all over, it would definitely be AGS.

AGS has some of the typical problems found in a new school. They are still finding their way. When compared to other private schools in Atlanta, a local magazine gave AGS very high marks for its science and math courses. However, we have been disappointed with the quality of some of the teachers. In AGS' defense, poor teachers don't generally get asked back. Parent involvement is high and enthusiastic. I am not worried about lack of 'real world' experience (no boys) as there is plenty of time for that after high school. My daughter's (she started in 9th) confidence has grown and she readily speaks up in all of her classes, something she was hesitant to do in her previous co-ed school. This is not an 'easy' curriculum so be prepared. Seniors this year have been accepted at Columbia, UVA, etc. Not bad for such a young school.

The academics are outstanding and the Headmaster exemplifies the most professional outstanding leadership, however discipline is lacking and opertunities to build a community are few because the student body is so spread out. We are sorry about our choice and hope that thing improve.

Only in existence for 7 years this school is outstanding. Wireless laptops for each girl; strong & competitive athletic program; wonderful Fine Arts offerings; strong academics - science & math; welcoming and supportive faculty.

I first began AGS with the feeling that I would enjoy this school,however,this proved wrong.I have been to gender seperated schools before,and they have all been a good learning experience.I have given this school a chance, but am glad to say I won't be coming here next year. (run while you can)

The Atlanta Girls' school is a great place for young girls to express themselves freely. There are many great extracurricular activities. Every girl can play any sport no matter how experienced. As girls grow older I think being in a co-ed environment helps better prepare them for real world experiences. My daughter only attended AGS for 3 years (6-8), but those 3 years helped give her the confidence she needed to be in a co-ed environment for her high school journey. The academic programs at AGS are growing rapidly and are of excellent quality (both middle school and high school). The one thing I love and will miss most about AGS is the level of parent involvement. The amount of parent volunteers and support is wonderful. I would highly recommend the Atlanta Girls' School to anyone who wants their daughter to have an educational and confidence building middle school experience.
