We were looking for a school that was well-rounded and we found Atholton! That was the best decision ever. My son is in Kindergarten. He loves going to school and he loves his teachers (Mrs. Burgess and Mrs. Kathy). Ms. Kim the principal is also such a warm person.

I just wanted everyone to know, that there are some good teachers at Atholton who will help. However, there are some bad teachers at Atholton who will allow cursing, swearing, and will take anger out on student, based on their personal life. Their music used to be good with MRS. herzel but with the next teacher, uhh that was not good. I hope there new music teacher is better than the last one.
