I highly recommend ATI East Village! All the teachers are amazing. They are so kind to each child, truly encouraging each to their strengths. My daughter is always eager to go to school and has a wonderful relationship with her teachers. The director and educational staff make themselves very accessible and very supportive. I am confident that this school has set a solid foundation for her learning path and that they have developed a true love for learning. The wonderful programs here at ATI East Village also help to enrich the Middle School experience. I am absolutely thrilled to have found an environment that is allowing my daughter to flourish and preparing her for her future education, while at the same time providing her an opportunity to have fun with the friends she has made. I look forward to watching her continued development as she continues her middle school years at this school.

I highly recommend ATI. My son is currently in 7th grade at ATI. The guides (teachers) are an incredibly talented and creative group. Their classes are constructed to engage the kids in a way that makes everything relevant to the world and fosters a love of learning. The curriculum is collaborative, thought provoking, teaches the kids to be thinkers and problem solvers. The school is a small community with class sizes that can't be beat for individualized attention and learning. The administrative staff is extremely a supportive, kind, welcome to suggestions and keeps you informed. ATI provides a caring, fun and challenging environment for learning. We are very grateful that our son is at ATI.

The educators and administrative staff are devoted, caring, and skilled at challenging each child to excel academically at their own pace. My daughter just absolutely loves going to school each day. This middle school is the perfect blend of academics, culture appreciation, and socialization. The class structure provides a sense of comfort, and my daughter just seems to thrive in their learning environment. In the three years we've been attending, there has been little to no staff turnover. This has allowed my daughter to form a very special bond with her teachers. This school is a little gem, and I'm so glad I found it! If you want to give your middle schooler the lifelong gift of the love of learning, then enroll them at this school.

Our 7th grade son attends ATI East Village. The short of it is that he loves the school. It's a supportive, engaging and challenging environment for him. The students are encouraged to voice their ideas and interests, often leading to the teachers integrating them into the children's studies. There is an excellent student to teacher ratio at the school, which makes our son's experience personalized. We also appreciate the responsiveness of the school, with an administration committed to listening to parents. It's a sweet little school with a great group of kids.

Our daughter has had a wonderful experience at ATI. She is challenged far more than was the case at her public school. Our daughter receives the kind of individual attention that would be unheard of even at most private schools. The faculty is kind, fun, and creative, and they take our daughter's education very seriously.
