Our founder, Lila McDill, had one vision: Children learn by doing. What started as an experimental lab school in 1970 is now home to nearly 400 students.
We are a progressive elementary school serving students from age 3 through sixth grade in a diverse community in Midtown Atlanta.
Grounded in principles of excellence, innovation and play, our students learn to use their voice, be responsible and self-aware.
We graduate passion-driven young adults who lead lives of purpose in an interconnected world.

- At The Children`s School, we believe children learn by doing. When children engage in hands-on, meaningful play, whether it is outside on the playground or in a circle in the classroom, they`re learning essential 21st century skills like communication and collaboration. We believe above all else- children and adults- are learners first. We continually explore the most innovative curricula to ensure that our students and faculty remain challenged and future-focused. The Children`s School is an intentionally and authentically diverse community that believes that everyone has the right to show up as their full self. At an early age our students understand the principles of social justice and service to others. At The Children`s School, it`s not enough for our students to simply learn to read, write, add, or subtract. We`re also teaching them to live and lead in a big world.
