Under the current leadership of Vanessa Ullmann, her outstanding faculty and SACS (Southern Association of Colleges & Schools) Accrediations, The Kessler School is unlike many schools that concentrate solely on children's academic growth.
We recognize the need for a balance in children's lives.
In addition to a strong academic base, we provide students with a variety of arts and cultural experiences to enhance learning: Spanish language instruction, visual arts, PE and music.
