School Reviews

  • Recommended February 22, 2013 - 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 delighted 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. - Posted by Parent
