My son was in the GA preschool program. Mrs. Cynthia and Mrs. Chhavi are amazing! My son learned so much! He is more that ready for Kindergarten. They both genuinely care about the children! My son had a wonderful experience!

This school is great in terms of wonderful teachers, great curriculum, academic and sports achievements. My child loves it here, and it provides a thriving environment for the children. However, there seems to be a relatively lesser openness to other culture/ races, especially how parents are treated, regardless of their educational/ professional backgrounds. With a change of front desk staff at the after-school building and in the higher administration, this was a little better, but I guess old ways settle in fast. If they could address this, it would be the best place, hands down. Regardless of that, we are grateful for all the school has to offer our child.

We love Cornerstone. We have been here for more than a decade, from 6 months to middle school. My daughter has flourished, and enjoyed ballet, flute, band, music ensemble, math team, swim team, and has really developed academically. Because no nonsense is tolerated, my daughter is more well-mannered than I could ever hope to be! It is a great school. Check out GASSO for scholarships!!!!

Cornerstone has provided a fantastic education for our son from his 3 yr old year to his present 6th grade. Amazing teachers and admin staff who really care and help tailor each child'' s learning program. A small school with so much to offer. Small class size, low tuition, many clubs. The best!
