School Reviews

ADS is the hidden gem of Brookhaven/Atlanta. The class sizes are small, wonderful academics for the school, and the school has created a wonderful community for the children. Each staff member knows each child and each child knows the staff. The teachers are Orton-Gillingham trained and can cater lessons to each child based on need. And most importantly, the school emphasizes social/emotional well-being as much as academics, which is so critical. The are so many events where they engage the older students with the younger students, which establishes mentorships and friendships. ADS is our home away from home.
