Atlas International School
Amount of homework: Just right

Having Friday as a home school day is a blessing! Time is spent reviewing lessons from the week, going over any difficult topics and getting work done on reports/projects.

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.

Develops grit: Strongly agree

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.

Respect is something that is encouraged and developed at Atlas on a daily basis. The faculty and staff lead through example.

Each month the students discuss a different core value. They are given the opportunity to demonstrate this value with their fellow students.

Parents are encouraged to bring any all all concerns to administration. Unlike public school, the administration is open to having a productive dialogue with parents.

With a 6 to 1 Student to Teacher ratio, the teachers are able to be extremely effective.

The 6 to 1 Teacher to Student Ratio is amazing. The language and music emphasis is really great.
