Hello! I found about atlas international on this forum as I was researching private schools. Can anyone tell me any recent information on how they are liking it for their kids? Any comparisons to other local private schools? Or even charters? How rigorous is the curriculum! Any thoughts on the Core Knowlege curriculum that they follow?

I liked that they emphasized music and healthy habits on top of schoolwork and academics.

Thanks!

My two kids go there, and they love it! Very small class sizes, lots of attention from the teachers and teacher assistants, and the language immersion are the major +s. I don't have any comparisons with other private schools, since my kids have been at Atlas since pre-K. My daughter and son work very hard, and the expectation of the school is that the parents will assist with homework assignments and projects.

I personally believe that the healthy food and eating habits contribute to academic success. The music piece is good as well.
