I just want to say how much I have enjoyed watching my grandson Idris Falls grow in his academics. I want to say thank you to the entire staff for helping my son Ronald Falls with tutoring and guidance in getting Idris to the place he is now. Idris is more confident and has learned his love of music (he plays the clarinet and looking forward to learning the saxophone. Idris is learning how to manage his temperament and has made fabulous friendships. Idris has acknowledged to me how much he enjoys his school and his teachers.

This will be our third upcoming year with Imhotep. Imhotep is truly a rare gem in Atlanta. My son is doing a grade ahead of the grade he is in, e.g. he is in Grade 4 and doing Grade 5 and for some topics Grade 6 and 7 work. The teachers, staff and administration are hands down the best. Any issues we have encountered was handled well and with extreme care. The administration has exhibited extreme caution under CDC guidelines in a COVID environment. We have done school in person and virtual during the pandemic and it has been a seamless learning process. Since the classrooms have large screen TVs the in-person kids and teacher sees the virtual kids on the screen as if they are sitting in the classroom.

This is a school that truly loves kids! My children (3) have had an opportunity to be themselves and develop confidence in their own intelligence at Imhotep.

With caring teachers and sweet kids, this place is like a family. Even with the struggles of the 2020 pandemic, they worked to provide a high-quality education for students. Many extracurriculars were put on hold, but parents and staff coordinated to still create celebrations and special events (virtually and in person) that would feel meaningful for students. This place is a gem in the Atlanta community.

All 5 of my children attended Imhotep and the historic Florence Jackson. So far, one has become a physician, one a nurse practitioner and the others are following closely behind in the science and math fields. The school provided the confidence that is needed to compete within the the American majority institutions. Thanks so much for everything and keep the dream alive!!!

I love this school. I moved my daughter here in the 4th grade. She has grown academically, her confidence and independence and awareness has grown more than I could have imagined in a short amount of time. Imhotep Academy brings out the intelligence and critical thinker out of our children. And now I work there! It's Great!
