    "I moved my child to Friends after two years of having her in a highly rated public school. She is 100% happier, learning significantly more, with much less frustration for our whole family. The focus on character keeps the distractions to a minimum, while teaching skills for real life, and supporting the strengths in each child. They really do implement individualized learning for each child, and their teacher ratios and support staff are set up to make it happen. Additionally, there is more time in the day for recess, music, and individual reading, breaks that really helps young children learn during the times of day when they need to focus on math, English, science, foreign language, and history. As a bonus, the Art teacher is beyond wonderful. I was not looking for private school specifically, we were willing to move, I was looking for the right school for my individual child, and Friend's is a perfect fit. The proof is in her growth, both academically and as a person."

    "This school is amazing. They do a wonderful job of working with children to discover and develop their strengths. They also help them with their weakness but in a very positive and nurturing way. I get very frequent feedback from the teachers on how my child is progressing. Sometimes I wonder if the teachers ever sleep!"

    "Our daughter is currently enrolled in the pre-k program. We are very impressed with the academics, but are even more impressed with how much our daughter has matured socially and emotionally. Her teachers have done a fabulous job teaching her to resolve conflict among her peers. Not only are they providing strong academics, they are helping her to become an independent, kind and empathetic person."

    "This is a fantastic, nurturing, and academically rigorous environment for my two children. My sons receive individualized attention from amazing teachers. They are respected for whom they are but are also expected to take ownership of their learning and behavior. I cannot think of a better place for my kids to learn."

    "My son graduated from Friends School of Atlanta in 2004 and went on to Paideia and NYU. He's a pretty decent human being, and for that I thank the teachers and staff at FSA for their commitment to providing top notch education in an atmosphere of diversity, fairness, and respect. I have been honored to serve on the Board of Trustees since 2006 and in that time I have watched the school expand into its great facility on Columbia Drive while also expanding its mission and its community outreach. If you are looking for an independent school where your child will be honored as a member of a beloved community, look no further than Friends School of Atlanta."
