The Suzuki School provides an educational environment of excellence based on the principles of Dr. Shinichi Suzuki on a 12-month program for children from infancy through 5 years of age, to offer a classroom environment that welcomes each child so that he/she may develop strong bonds of affection and empathy with his/her classmates and teachers, to prepare young children socially, emotionally and academically so that they may be successful in their next school environment and to develop in each child the foundations of a Noble Heart, to provide a supportive community for our families as they embark on the enormous responsibility of parenthood, and to build a partnership with each parent that provides their child with stability and consistency in their social, emotional, and academic development.

School Reviews

Suzuki was an excellent school for our children. However, once they refocused all of their energy and attention into expanding their revenues and opening another school I realized they do not care about the children as they tout. The Buckhead school was depleted of its dynamic and teacher base to attract and fund the new school leaving classrooms with a majority of substitutes and under qualified assistants. Very little care and regard were given to the current parents (or teachers) in an effort to launch the new school - decisions were made without sufficient parental input, communication was extremely poor and they remain unorganized and ineffective. I wondered why programs like Playball were cancelled as well as why the official Halloween event was changed (rather than off campus its now very scaled back and in the classroom only). These changes were not explicitly communicated as cost saving measures in an effort to open a new school, but once the new school was announced it was apparent they were. The children LOVED those offerings and for them to be taken away in a money making effort were discouraging. If you are looking for an excellent preschool, I suggest that you do not rely on their "history" of excellence, but rather explore it for yourself and definitely visit to make your on conclusions. Find how how the teachers who lead their rooms are qualified. While many of them have been doing montessori education for a while, I found that too teachers were glorified day care teachers and many were just placeholders and did not justify my hard earned money when there are other preschools available.
