After spending 4 grueling years in public school, I knew that I had to make a change. I decided to go to Atlas for many reasons: small class size, more parent involvement, uniforms, etc... However the two main reasons are Jackie and Elizabeth. Their dedication and passion to education are part of what makes Atlas shine!
I am baffled by some of the negative comments here. The school doesn't breed sheltered students: that's a parenting issue. Bad grades are certainly not swept under the rug! It's been my experience that the teachers focus extra hard when students encounter problem areas. Unlike public school, where my child was just being pushed through the system.
To the person who stated "It's the owners way or the high way": When you own your own school you can make the rules. Attending Atlas is an option. If you don't like the rules, you are free to explore other educational options. It's been my experience, that the owner is very approachable, and open to listening to suggestions and new ideas.
