First of all: the school is free of bullying. Atkinson is home of the RAISE! The kids, the staff and the parents are very proud of that! The principal knows every student by name and is a very nice men. My son loves the school!
Atkinson focuses on the kids and teaching them to be part of a community. With a diverse community, kids are all given the opportunity to learn and the teachers try to let kids learn in their own ways. The principal knows each of the 350+ students names, strengths and weaknesses. He continues to support the staff and upgrade the school. More parent involvement would help despite a strong PTO.
Great School great enviroment lots of activity great teachers excellent principal
The new principle is really making wonderful progress in a school that is really a wonderful friendly place for children to learn. The teachers and staff a excellent and highly qualified.
Atkinson has suffered in the past couple of years but with the right leadership and attitude, the school has overcome adversity and is continuing to become a family. Everyone, teachers, students, administrators and families are working together to ensure that the best opportunities are offered to the kids.
