  • Under the current leadership of Vanessa Ullmann, her outstanding faculty and SACS (Southern Association of Colleges & Schools) Accrediations, The Kessler School is unlike many schools that concentrate solely on children's academic growth.

  • In addition to a strong academic base, we provide students with a variety of arts and cultural experiences to enhance learning: Spanish language instruction, visual arts, PE and music.
