School Notes

  • Holy Innocents' Episcopal is the largest parish Episcopal school in the nation and the only PK3-12th grade Episcopal School in Georgia.  We are a Christian school that serves students of all faiths, committed to the challenging academic Episcopal traditions of intellectual inquiry,  social justice, global education, service learning and physical development. Our students aren't just scholars or athletes or student leaders or artists. They are all of these things and more. Through a broad, diverse and rigorous curriculum, they become empathetic, enthusiastic, and open-minded learners to serve as catalysts for change in the world.

First year at HIES in ninth grade, and so far we love it. My son knew by the end of the first week that he liked his new school, and we knew we had made the right selection from several acceptances. The teachers and support of the Deans and Administration make this a wonderful school. The academics are challenging, but there is plenty of individual support when extra help is needed. Overall a good group of kids that have welcomed the new students.
