The parent community at Atrium is amazing; we have made as many new, close friends as our daughter! Parents here are involved, caring, smart, and fun to be with. The school involves them in the classroom, at assemblies, and in volunteer jobs. The academic curriculum is strong, and offers a range for children, from an innovative social justice foundation to the usual math, science, reading, and writing. The school offers an integrated program, which means that art and music are taught in the classrooms in tandem with the academic material. Teachers are dedicated to reaching the WHOLE child--the emotional, physical, and intelelctual aspects of development. Sports are not offered on a formal basis, although kids learn skills in PE. Overall, this school is a warm, community-spirited place where children feel loved and inspired to learn. My kid loves coming to school; Atrium teaches kids to be curious, constructive and kind.
