    "Save your money. The focus is not on academics but on some strange idea of how girls should learn. If your daughter is really smart, this is not a school that will encourage or promote individuality. I was sold on same gender education but very disappointed in how my child was treated. Extraordinarily high turnover with staff. 3 good teachers, the rest were marginal. This school caters to the lowest common denominator."

    "AGS is a one-of-a-kind school. GIrls feel completely free to be themselves, while faculty focus on helping them access their best selves. Students benefit from guidance in numerous intellectual pursuits (a larger percentage of graduates of this school attend top-ranked schools by Forbes than most Atlanta independent schools), but they also learn to lead and follow. Girls benefit from internship programs, global travel, no-cut athletics in middle school and much more. Because no boys are around, faculty can actively help girls practice strong intellectual inquiry and social problem-solving. Girl drama exists everywhere (because girl meanness in middle school is explained by both brain and hormonal science), but at AGS girls are called out when they exert social power inappropriately. Many girls at this school elect to go further in math and science than girls at co-ed schools. After their AGS and college careers, girls go on to become White House staff, attend medical school, pursue college counseling careers, become entrepreneurs, and more."

    "I would have to disagree whole-heartedly with the parent who stated that an AGS education is sub-par. I attended AGS for five years and had a wonderful experience. I found that it prepared me extremely well for the ivy-league university which I attended. The teachers are ALWAYS willing to stay after school to help students understand material. Teachers form relationships with the students, and often write them recommendations for jobs years after graduation. Because AGS is a growing school, it provides endless opportunities for leadership and community-building by the students themselves. These experiences, though not traditional "classroom-learning" are invaluable and will be useful for the rest of the students' lives. Parents: DO send your daughters to AGS!"

    "My daughter is currently a 7 th grade student at AGS. Her first year was a year of unparalleled growth and personal discovery. I watched my daughter blossom into a full fledged athlete, scholar, actress, and Social butterfly. I saw her take risks and make many new friends. She didn't have any friends on day 1 but she quickly made them on all grade levels. Her teachers were extremely supportive and were available for after school tutoring. She was not afraid to run for office or try different sports. I truly believe in the mission of the school. The student teacher ratio last year was 9 to 1! I recommend this school without reservation."

    "I am going into freshman year, and I hope to stay for all of high school. I love this school! I have so many friends, and I really feel accepted. The teachers all genuinely care about us, and I know I have a few teachers that I wouldn't hesitate to go to if I had a problem. However, the school is not for everyone. It's a very small community with no boys. Girls who want to live huge social lives and go to football games and date wouldn't like this school. I am very happy here. Of course, you can't stop girls from gossiping, and there has been drama, but it has always been resolved before it got nasty. We still see boys; we have dances with a military academy, and socials, and we go to neighboring schools football gems.most girls have found that doing a n activity outside of school gives hem more time with boys, and most of my friend have discovered that high school boys aren't really all that great. If you want a real experience, try a shadow day. I really recommend it. To the reviewer who said their kid wasn't welcomed, I'm very sorry. I have never heard of anything like that happening. Honestly, I always se my friends being warm and open to all new students"
