ATL is caring school, the teachers all work together for the betterment of each student. The teachers are some of the best in the our county. The smaller number of students in the classroom, gives the teachers more one on one experience and so many children in Chester, need the love and concern that the teachers/staff give them. Chester is a poor economically county, so much unemployment, and all issues that goes along with that. Many of the families want their children to go to ATL for a better education, so they can develop and better the outlook for Chester County, the public schools have much room for improvement ATL staff makes sure that the students feel apart of the school. They like all schools of their issues, but they work out those for the betterment of the children. Chester County should be very proud o have such a great charter school.

I have 2 children that attend this school, and I love it. What I like most about this school is that my children are challenged according to their ability. I have come to expect the teachers to push my kids to a higher level. I can pop in and out of the school at any time, and the parental involvement reaches far above those of surrounding schools. The kids are really pushed to be better people as well as students. Kathi Gaddy

Each child is known and decisions made regarding curriculum and instruction are based on what each child needs. Test scores speak for themselves as ATL was the ONLY school in the entire distict that made gains (and significant gains at that) in all areas of student performance. Students thrive at ATL and are accepted. respected, and loved for who they are - this is something ATL offers that no other achool in the area can come close to matching.

The only thing this school can brag about is the class sizes. They are better in that regard, but offer nothing other area schools do not offer.

The ATL school for me as parent has been wonderful. I had my child in a christian school for K5 and 1st grade and was pleased. With financing changing for our family and a 2nd child we had to alter our plans with the private schooling. I have been greatly pleased with ATL and the staff. The teachers all know the kids and are open to any help or advise from parents.
