I have lived in this neighborhood for over 18 years. My children attended Huntley Hills and I would not change a thing about our experience. Every principal has been caring and involved, but none so much as the current principal, Dr. Angela Leissa. The Montessori program gives options for a students education that other schools cannot begin to match. Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!

Overall, I have been very impressed with this school. We are not in district, and we send two children to the Montessori program. Both of our children are performing well above their age group. The teachers are sensitive to their students' needs and work hard to make sure that every student succeeds. The faculty and staff are responsive to parental concerns. It is one of the best-kept secrets in DeKalb County.

Our daughter is in the montessouri program and is doing excellent. She begins 1st grade this fall and already has math, music, and reading skills prior to starting. We are impressed with how organized this school is. No complaints.

My daughter had a wonderful 4th grade experience last term. She was blessed to have a trained gifted/discovery teacher. This teacher made learning interesting and fun. The entire class benefited from her guidance.
