School Reviews

My kids really enjoy Atonement. They are getting a great education but are also growing in many other ways. They are encouraged to always be kind and to think of others. If feels like a family. My kids are cared for, supported and loved. They also participate in sports, music and school plays. The size of the school allows them to get plenty of attention and to participate in a lot of activities. Their standardized test scores are a reflection of the great teachers we have at ALS!
