The Atlanta School provides children an excellent education by touching all aspects of development. TAS teaches kids to read and do math and think critically, through showing them the world and helping them process, analyze and express their experiences. Field trips to historical sites, natural spaces, cultural destinations, as well as regular participation in graphic and performing arts, are not add-on luxuries at TAS, but are essential tools of the curriculum itself. I have been associated with the school for many years (first as an employee and older sister to a child enrolled), and the children who have passed through have become successful adults in many areas - the arts, finance, microbiology - and are universally creative thinkers and engaged in their communities. Now that I am a parent, when I leave my daughter there in the morning, I rest assured that she will be not only cared for and not even just adequately stimulated educationally, but that the TAS community will exposed her to the vibrant, wide world and will challenge to embrace it in her own way.

My oldest son attended The Atlanta School for 9 years, from Kindergarten thru 8th grade, and now attends the public high school in our attendance zone. There were no security incidents in all his years at The Atlanta School, but he has experienced numerous ones at his suburban high school, none from either homeless or transients. If ??Anonymous? has issues with homelessness and transients in the vicinity, perhaps (s)he should move out of greater Atlanta. These folks are seen everyday in every neighborhood and interstate ramp exit. In addition the children at the school are taught respect for their neighbors, especially those that need help. To this end, they are actively involved in the Atlanta Community Food Bank, AidsWalk Atlanta, etc. Perhaps you and your family could help resolve the homeless issue more constructively thru action rather than just complaining. There are several shelters and soup kitchens that could use both your funds and your volunteer time.

Please be aware that the school is a tenant and the church is their landlord. The physical premises are the responsibility of the church, where your complaint should have been better voiced.

When I interviewed with the co-founder of the Atlanta school, Joy Ward for my child, I asked her about security because the school is in down town Atlanta. She assured me that the doors would be locked and could only be opened with a code that was given out only to staff and parents. My child has been attending the school for 6 months and the doors have not worked since we have been there. We complained and she said the doors of the church were old and would swell and needed to be replaced etc. she had to talk to the church etc. The school is in an old church. Basically nothing was done about it. We pay $10,500 a year to send our child to this school and there are homeless people and other transients that walk by that school every day and we are furious that our child is not safe and we have spent this kind of money. Joy and the other teachers at the school are very rude to us now that we have continued to complain.
