Two of my children are in a k-5 multi-age class in california, but we are relocating to atlanta in summer of 2009 and I would really like to find similar classes, like minded parents and a neighborhood which supports this type of learning.

There are many school choices in Atlanta if you are willing to go private. Paidea, a private school near Emory University which is loosely Montessori based but academically excellent, and Montessori of which there are many in the Atlanta area might be worth looking into. I do not know of any public schools that would fit your preferences. Good luck!

Not many public schools in our area have multi-age classrooms. There are private schools that employ this model, but not many public.

Tritt Elementary School in Cobb County has a "family group" of 2nd-5th grade classes in the school. They do multi-age instruction among the classes for part of the day, but not all day. They also do special projects and field trips across the grade levels within the family group. It's sort of like a school-within-a-school. It's been very successful.

Arbor Montessori around Emory University could be a good choice.
