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.
They have a wonderful garden and edible tree orchard. The students are very engaging and want to learn.
Their commitment to the new Organic Garden is going to transform the school.
