With the small class sizes and awesome teachers and administration I was able to graduate and be accepted to several colleges. I chose a small Northwest college in Florida. Atlantis Academy changed my life!

This school saved my daughter. They are caring, nurturing and at the same time they hold our children accountable with their academics. The small class sizes and professional teachers blend a wonderful academic setting. The administration has an open door policy and they go above and beyond their daily duties. Choose Atlantis Academy Coral Springs you won`t be disappointed!

We have seen our child blossom at AA. We are working on ensuring that he continues to be pushed beyond his dreams. The staff members are caring and eager to help the children learn. A few turnovers, but it seems that has occurred to ensure the school maintains staff members who care are compassionate and passionate. It has been a positive experience for us as a family.
