    "Academe of the Oaks is a Waldorf school. When I came to the school for a visitation day, I was very nervous. Based off of their website, I didn't think that I had what it took to "survive" at the school. The students were nice and weird at the same time, and some of the work was very new to me. Now that I have been attending Academe of the Oaks I have a completely different view about the school. I am the first Muslim to attend this school, and hopefully the first one to graduate. When I first came to the school, I felt like I had to set the best example, because I felt like I had to "represent Muslims". Luckily, I found out that I could be myself, while still giving them a positive image of Muslims/Islam. The teachers expect a lot from the students, but they really want us to succeed and be prepared for college, and for the rest of our lives. At first, the work and teaching methods were hard to adjust to, but now I know that as long as I do my best, I should be fine. This school has really pushed be to be more socially active, as well as helped develop my speech skills. One of the best things that I like about this school is how art is incorporated in almost every subject. My drawing skills have improved so much since I joined this school, and for that I am extremely grateful. I know look at pictures in a completely different way. And not only art as in drawings or paintings, but art expressed in poetry, and monologues, plays, the list goes on and on. I am so grateful and blessed to be at this school and I can't imagine myself being anywhere else."

    "I love Academe of the Oaks High School. They are true to their mission of educating clear, flexible, resourceful thinkers. The teachers are adults with boundaries who do what is promised. I would not want my child to go anywhere else."

    "Academe of the Oaks is an outstanding, academically competitive high school in Atlanta. All private schools offer some mission version incorporating educating "the whole child." Academe comes the closest of any high school I've encountered that actually does it, with all-school social events (including a two-night getaway at the start of school, coffee nights in which students perform, prom, etc.), sports throughout the year that approximately 80% of students participate in, an emphasis on volunteering both in and out of school (graduates are required to have accumulated 160 hours), internships, senior projects, amazing week-long field trips for each grade yearly, and a wonderful system of eight or nine main-lesson block classes throughout the year (everything from blacksmithing to Revolution and Reform to both organic and inorganic chemistry), in which original materials only are used, no textbooks, and students are required to compile their own "textbook" with drawings, essays, and more for each block. Track classes for foreign languages, math, sciences, etc., are rigorous and engaging. The school is small, 80 students currently in four grades, and graduates have been accepted at schools throughout the country, including Princeton, Stanford, Duke, Northwestern, and dozens more. No, I'm not a teacher, just a parent who has seen her son happy and nurtured for going on four years."
