- In a world becoming exponentially more complex, girls will face challenges that cannot be solved with traditional methods alone. They will need to be curious, creative, collaborative, and confident. At Atlanta Girls` School, we teach girls to be world-class problem solvers. Our curriculum and culture emerge from a distinct vision of what girls must learn individually and collectively to become thoughtful and capable leaders. We achieve this by using proven and emerging educational techniques tailored to how girls learn, integrating big-picture thinking, high expectations, and leading-edge technologies. More than any other school in Atlanta, AGS is purposefully built to provide the academic, social, and environmental advantages girls need.

AGS is a great place for girls to learn, grow and develop leadership skills! Middle and high school is a crucial time for girls to find their voice and begin to pursue their passions. AGS enabled me to explore my future career choice in public health at an early age. I also felt well prepared (both academically and socially) for my undergrad experience where I received a leadership scholarship and my experience pursuing my MPH at Emory Rollins School of Public Health. I am proud to say I have attended AGS and continue to see the positive impact the experience has made in my life.

Atlanta Girls' School (AGS) is the BEST place for girls! I have served on the AGS board for many years and I have watched our girls gain confidence and find their voices. The senior speeches are amazing! AGS lives its mission every day: to inspire girls to lead lives of purpose. I believe AGS girls will change the world!

My daughter joined AGS in 6th grade from a larger Atlanta private school. She entered as a shy, quiet, soft spoken and timid girl and emerged as a confident, well-spoken, fearless young lady with robust academic skills and a strong sense of self. I attribute this to her experience at AGS. AGS nurtures the individual, celebrates her strengths, and provides the room for the girls to speak up and be heard. It is an extremely empowering place with wonderful teachers, an excellent college-prep curriculum, and a welcoming, inclusive environment. AGS changed my daughter's life. She went on to get into the rigorous college of her first choice and has been on the Dean's list for four years. She is graduating in May and starting a career in the male-dominated field of commercial real estate (got her offer in December of her senior year). I know she will be successful due to the belief in herself that she gained from her experience at AGS. She has remained friends with many of the teachers at AGS and her friend group. While she loves her college sorority sisters, at 22, her best friend is the one she made in 6th grade at AGS. Can't say enough about this great school and highly recommend you consider it for your girl!

AGS is a fabulous place to educate your daughters, develop their confidence, and prepare them to be unapologetically bold leaders in the classroom and beyond. The school has strong and devoted faculty and an amazing college counselor. Our oldest daughter graduated two years ago and is now thriving academically at Princeton. Her classmates are doing great things at Duke, the Naval Academy, Spelman, Brown, University of Chicago, Georgia Tech, UGA Honors, and many other top colleges and universities. AGS offers a girl-centric curriculum that empowers girls to grow into academically successful young women. It has been a great community for our daughters and our whole family.

I am a parent of two alumnae of Atlanta Girls' School. Both have now finished graduate school (MBA and Master's in Mental Health Counseling) and have proved themselves to be confident, engaged, successful young women. Their all-girls school educational at AGS equipped them to start out on their own with just the right skills for college and the right fundamentals for life. AGS's extraordinary curriculum, capable and approachable teachers, holistic approach and strong community is right for 80% of Atlanta's girls. This school is a well-kept secret that should not be kept secret. Attend a virtual open house, watch a parent webinar, request more information and see for yourself!

We are big proponents of single-gender education and AGS offers more. Besides the small class size, and a small school, it allowed our daughter to try new things, step out of her comfort zone, and become confident in who she is as a strong woman. AGS creates leaders.

There is so much to say about this AMAZING school that provides a one-of-a-kind education like no other. Classes are rigorous, engaging, and challenging.The teachers are truly invested and care so much about every single girls' education and personal development. I have two daughters here (6th and 8th grades, one of which with ASD) who are very different but who are both thriving academically and socially. At AGS, small class sizes and the small student body mean that every single teacher knows the needs, strengths, goals, and personality of every single student. Students know that the teachers are there to support them at all turns. The girls all get along, include one another, and support one another. I never hear of any bullying. Most impressive is how the girls all develop such strong confidence, critical thinking, public speaking, and leadership skills. The girls get to experience so many opportunities that are only available at an all-girls school. For example, my 8th grader got to spend several days this year at Spanx headquarters learning to code and learning about entrepreneurship with Spanx founder Sara Blakely and supermodel Karlie Kloss. There are too many experiences and opportunities to mention, but let me just say this is truly a special place!

We moved our daughter to AGS in 8th grade. I am a huge believer in girl's education and the solid research behind the benefits of it and thought it would be the right school for our family. It has far exceeded our expectations and in a few short months, our daughter has completely transformed there. She is more confident, outspoken, and walks taller now. It is such a welcoming and loving environment with an opportunity for the focus to be on all the right things. Love AGS -- it's a hidden gem in Atlanta.

Our experience with the faculty and administration has had a positive effect on our daughter's academic career. She has become more confident and outspoken. She is excelling in her classes now that she participate with her teachers. She is also starting to take on leadership roles within her class! We have truly watched a blossoming of a young woman. We cannot encourage parents of girls enough to at least come and shadow for a day so your daughter can experience some of the positive energy that the teachers pour into the students on a daily basis!

My daughter has been at AGS for 5 years - she started in 6th grade. We have been impressed with the individual attention that our daughter has received from her advisor and from every teacher. She has learned to work in partnership with her teachers to get what she needs from each class. Her level of true understanding of every subject is second to none. I am constantly amazed by the wealth of knowledge that she can share with me on every subject from World History to Latin to Chemistry. If your daughter loves to learn, then AGS is the place for her!

Academically, AGS is outstanding. AGS has a high matriculation to top-notch universities and the college counseling is second to none. AGS is everything a parent could wish for. The teachers are excellent and they are friendly and know their students. Dinner conversations have become interesting and lively since my daughter is now at AGS where the students are taught to express themselves with confidence.

Sending your child to a single-sex school is one of several options you have when it comes to private schools.
Each state sets its own teacher certification requirements. While many private schools do not require you to be certified, it is in your best interests to obtain certification. This article includes contact information for state education offices so you can begin the process.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
