What a difference a year makes. I have changed my rating made one year ago for BPA. The school has listened and improved since then. The library is now full of books and the test scores are now very competitive with the top schools in the Atlanta Public School System. I don't yet give it 5 stars, because the admin and some teachers still have some trouble with being responsive. But overall this school is much improved and I am optimistic about the outlook for Burgess-Peterson Academy.

Burgess Peterson Academy is an amazing neighborhood school. Anyone who lives in the East Atlanta community looking at school options should tour the school and speak to other BPA parents before "counting out" this school. BPA provides a nurturing environment while creating a culture of academic success. The after school activity choices and school/PTA-sponsored events are among the best in the area. The students love to go to school here and the leadership team is committed to excellence.

This is an excellent school where the leadership is impeccable! The principal is very engaged and genuinely love all the children. This is demonstrative of improved test scores and various programs. I've notice excellent involvement of parents, teachers and volunteers. The environment is one of openness and transparency. Kudos to all that make this a great school.

Their commitment to the new Organic Garden is going to transform the school.
