- Welcome to the digital home of OMNI International School. OMNI is a language immersion school of excellence. Its local delivery of a well-balanced, rigorous academic curriculum is taught with a global perspective. As you`re well aware, there is a trend of globalization that has created a need and desire for quality preschools and schools with emphasis on foreign language, OMNI is such a place. Our focus from PK2-6th grade is a full immersion of the Asian (Japanese or Chinese) and English languages with Spanish supplemented as an enrichment. With this approach, each child will have a solid footing in their native tongue and the foundation needed to build on other aspects of their development.

My son LOVES this school from the teachers to the students to the challenging curriculum. Omni integrates compassion into their teaching standards, emphasizes the importance of values, and builds leaders through each of their classes and lessons.Though it is a small school, it allows for a lower student to teacher ratio, giving children more confidence when asking questions, engaging in group activities, and opportunities for one-on-one time with the teachers.Teachers are passionate about seeing their students succeed. They are so great about sharing moments of pride they see within your child their good behaviors and achievements; and they know the importance of getting the parents involved should an issue arise, and do it in a very respectful, approachable manner. Great team great school!

Omni International School is one of Atlanta`s hidden gems for more reasons than this review will allow characters for, I`m sure. First, the patience I`ve witnessed from the teachers managing classes via Zoom is so remarkable I`m in awe just thinking about how they manage a whole classroom of littles in-person. Second, the teacher-to-student ratio is perfect for the intensely immersive format of the curriculum. It is truly amazing to witness stages of growth we often take for granted-the stages of learning language. Learning to speak English is so common in the USA that we seldom realize the time it takes to learn, the processes we endure as children learning language, and how essential language is in building confidence and mental prowess. Omni International compounds this value with its focus on immersion not only in English (speaking, reading, writing) but in Chinese, Japanese, and Spanish and even Math! To see a shy, apprehensive 2-year-old walk into Omni International School, blossom into a confident, strong-willed, outgoing, creative 5-year old-that`s an amazing thing. Seeing his coloring and penmanship evolve exactly as the teachers predicted, is unbelievable! And hearing him speak an entire phrase in Chinese, translate it, challenge me to say it, and then tell me I`m saying it wrong(lol)-no words can describe the pride in knowing, with Omni School helping to lay the foundation for his future, there are no limits to what he can do or will do.

We have been very pleased with Omni since the beginning. My daughter is currently a 1st grader and has been there since pre-K4. She has continued to grow and excel academically each year. She has enjoyed not only learning a 2nd language (Chinese) but also has enjoyed her classes in reading, math, and science. Since Covid, the school has been virtual but that has not changed the rigorous or collaborative learning of the program. Omni has not skipped a beat! I have spoken to other parents who children attend other private schools around the Atlanta area and that has not been the case. I appreciate Omni for continuing the high level of customer service and learning virtually that we became accustomed to during in-person learning. This was a lost year for many children across the country, but not at Omni. I`m forever grateful for that!

"Preparedness and Communication" are two words that come to mind when thinking of survival tactics in the year that was 2020. Those are the same words I`d use to characterize the administration & faculty at OMNI. Our child, along with many other children started OMNI in the middle of an unprecedented time but the transition from in-person to virtual was made seamless by the administration. Our children`s learning was not compromised due to the diligence and dedication of the teachers & faculty. I personally am grateful for OMNI and look forward to the continual creation of the Village that is OMNI.

This is a great place for your child to be challenged and learn and grow at a phenomenal pace. I have been especially pleased with how they have handled virtual learning through Covid19. While many students across the country have lost a year, the children here have continued to be challenged and learn at an exceptional rate. This is a language based school and I . constantly blown away that my daughter can read and write in 2 languages. She is on the Chinese track and while in China for her birthday, she was speaking to natives like she has lived there for years.

OMNI International School is literally a hidden gem in the Southwest Atlanta area. If you are willing and able to invest in your children`s future from the beginning then this is the place to start. Our child started here in the second grade with no background or exposure in any of the Chinese/Japanese language. The thought of "language immersion" was a little worrisome coming from a private Christian school( with no language track), but we took a chance and went with the Japanese track and our daughter not only took a strong liking to it but exceeded the expectations for someone with no prior experience. Under the leadership of Mrs. Marks, all the teachers here are truly superb. They care about the children and their education. They are always available if you have any questions or concerns. Most importantly they are competitive in education, teaching at least two grades ahead. The children are also being taught independence and you can see that they genuinely enjoy being at school. The bond they create with the teachers and classmates is refreshing to witness. It is pretty hard to come by a school in the Southwest area with positive reviews/recommendations such as OMNI.

My daughter is a current 1st grader at Omni International. She has been there since Prek2. As an educator, I love the rigor and advanced curriculum. People are amazed when she speaks and reads Japanese. She loves her classmates and teachers.

We cannot recommend OMNI International School enough. The curriculum is rigorous, but not rigid. The teachers are challenging, yet loving. The leadership, especially Mrs. Marks, is visionary, creative, passionate, and resolute in providing the best education for our children.Our son started as a four-year-old coming from a pre-school (read: daycare) with some skills and innate abilities, but not getting the push he needed to truly grow. In his first two months at OMNI we saw an acceleration across the board, including reading, -- yes he actually started reading on his own at 4 -- writing sentences to show he could form complete thoughts and understood what he read, math, science, and even in Chinese. He is now 6, and he amazes us everyday with his independent skills in all those same areas. OMNI provides an environment where students receive specialized attention to the areas they need most help and are empowered to continue growth where they are strong.Our experience at OMNI was interrupted by the health crisis and need to convert to virtual school. It was during this time that we found out the true strength of OMNI is Mrs. Marks and her staff. The curriculum is not only effective but has shown durable, as we had to switch from in-person to virtual and was able to do so without sacrificing a year of instruction time. Our friends at schools literally twice the cost of OMNI were amazed at how much structure and support we received.What we like most is the school's willingness to solve any problems, issues, or challenges that may arise. Mrs. Marks is building a school that may run counter to the popular approaches to educating our children, but the proof is in the pudding. Sometimes, that means our expectations aren't aligned. Mrs. Marks is happy to have any conversation, no matter how difficult, as she sees these as opportunities to improve the OMNI experience for your family and the entire community. Out of the language immersion, garden, martial arts, and other aspects of OMNI student life, I think our student likes the marquee Christmas and Black History Month productions where students are able to show off their knowledge and presentation skills. This year's productions showed the flexibility, strength, and resolve of OMNI leadership and staff, as we were able to put together some great remote programs. OMNI is a community of people who care.

If you are searching for a preschool or elementary school for your precious little one, chooseOMNI International School. You will not regret it. This school provides a caring, nurturing, and challenging environment where the students thrive.Choosing Omni was one of the best decisions we made for our preschooler. Trying to finda language immersion preschool with a program that would be challenging and well balanced seemed like an impossible task.....and then we found OMNI. Dr Marks and her team have created and execute a truly unique and winning formula.OMNI Internationalschool will prepare your child for bothshort term and long term success because, even at the preschool level, the children are being equipped with essential tools to develop skills for success in every area of their lives. They are building character, developing strong social skills and developing strong language skills in two (and then three) languages. Our children are surpassing their peers academically. Perhaps, more importantly, they are learning to become independent thinkers and problemsolvers, all while havingfun with friends. Attend an open house event. Ask to speak with a current parent if you think it seems to good to be true. We can share many anecdotes. The head of school and teachers are conscientious, hard working and truly dedicated to our littleones. My son's first experience at school has been a wonderful one even through a year of virtual learning and for that I am truly grateful to OMNI!

Our daughter started Omni International School this past year and we have really enjoyed our experience. Our child is really challenged academically but in such a supportive environment. Even with virtual classes, the educators were able to keep the students fully engaged. The teachers and staff are responsive, encouraging and creative. With their curriculum she is really coming along with learning and speaking Chinese and we are hopeful to enroll our youngest daughter next year. We highly recommend Omni for parents looking for intimate classrooms and advanced paced courses.

Our son started OMNI International a year ago in the Chinese immersion track for PreK4. Starting this school pre COVID was a huge blessing. In the 3 months of him being face-to-face at OMNI, our experience was amazing. Our son learned and grasped so much in a short period of time and we were amazed at much Chinese he had learned and retained! Once the pandemic began and the school switched to virtual learning, OMNI rose to the occasion and tackled all the challenges head on! Mrs. Marks, the head of school, and all the staff are amazing! This school is like a small family and is a huge asset to the South Atlanta community. We continued to be amazed at how much OMNI has to offer our son and look forward to his future there!

Our child started Omni at the age of 2. As this is our third year enrolled, I couldn`t ask for a more family oriented environment in a school. Our daughter has not only developed within her core skill building but has also truly taken a liking to her foreign language (Japanese). During this last year, during the pandemic admin/staff have truly displayed their dedication to the Omni families as well as always keeping the children first.

Omni International School is a true hidden gem. We love it! Upon our initial visit three years ago, we were immediately impressed with the scope of offerings to students whether, science, technology, engineering, art, math, foreign language, or agriculture to name a few. Our daughter enrolled at two and became immersed in her dual-language program. She is accelerated well beyond her grade level, fluent in Japanese, and loves being a part of the showcases and performances, both on and off campus. She continues to thrive in a student centered, hands on learning environment that meets her individual needs. The staff is very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. Mrs. Marks, the founder and director is truly focused on providing a world-class education, where students are able to develop as independent and well-prepared global contributors.

OMNI International School has an awesome Dual Language Immersion program. Both the face-to-face and virtual classes are exemplary. I appreciate the dedication to intellectual rigor. Small class sizes afford a great opportunity for instruction.

I could not be more pleased with a school, and we have tried a few. My children (ages 3 and 5) often do not want to leave because they are having so much fun. This is the first school where my daughter has been academically challenged, and always in a positive, supportive way. As a non-profit, OMNI is an amazing value. The head-of-school and her husband have worked tirelessly and sacrificed to offer this educational opportunity as a ministry to our community. As an MIT graduate, I am picky about the quality of my children's education, and as I Christian, I am wary about where and with whom my children spend the majority of their time. However, I can attest that OMNI is truly a place where children can reach their God-given potential, and I pray that many more families will be blessed by what it has to offer.

OMNI International has proven to be SW Atlantas premiere Immersion program. You will not find a program that boasts academic rigor paired with Christian inspiration. We love the daily creed recitation and group prayer and the family atmosphere is an added bonus. GO OMNI!!

OMNI has proven to be an excellent choice for my family. My children have shown great progress and look forward to attending school every day. The level of rigor is just what my children need academically and having enrichment activities on site after school is very convenient.

OMNI is a first rate school operating with a 21st century mentality! My family and I are very pleased with the academic environment and culture at OMNI. Our two children have excelled in all areas of study. Our 3rd grader is already doing long division and fractions, two disciplines that are normally not introduced until the 4th or 5th grade! The Chinese is also amazing. Our children are being taught a full curriculum of grammar, reading, writing, and math in Mandarin Chinese. They are not just singing songs or copying characters, but really learning "in" the language. If you are looking for a school of quality for your precious little ones, OMNI is certainly the place to be.

My daughter is a 2nd grader at OMNI and is in her 2nd year at the school. I am extremely pleased with the school, the teacher to student ratio, curriculum, extra curricular activities, and teachers. The curriculum is challenging, but the staff provides all the support and encouragement for her to succeed. I am AMAZED at how well she can read and sing songs in Japanese. I am so impressed that we are planning to use her as our official interpreter when we attend the 2020 Summer Olympics in Japan.

The mastery of language is amazing and the breadth and depth of academic opportunities for the students are exceptional. My five year old is reading, writing, speaking, and doing math, science and more in both English and Japanese. But what I am the most impressed with is how the students play and interact with one another. OMNI balances fun, respect, consideration and kindness perfectly--which are the skills I am most invested in making sure my daughter masters!

OMNI International School and Academy has filled the educational gap in SW Atlanta. Our daughter has been enrolled there since the school opened. She is now in Kindergarten and we are more than pleased with what she is learning and the manor in which the curriculum is presented to the children. The teachers are top notch and it is evident that the administration cares about the teachers, students, and parents. Considering the amount of time she spends at school, it is fantastic to have the option of extra-curricular activities available on-site. Our daughter began reading at age 2.5 and was quite advanced in other academic areas prior to coming to OMNI. We were really concerned about where to enroll her given that many of the schools would have her repeating work that she had already mastered. At OMNI, she is progressing academically in both English and her target language. She finds the work interesting, challenging, and fun. The teachers are nurturing and are very creativity with the delivery of content. How else can you explain to a five-year old how to add fractions; enjoy writing (when that was her least favorite of things to do but now she loves it); or interesting facts about neutrons, protons, and molecules? We have done quite a thorough search of the surrounding area and there has been no school that remotely compares to the gem we have found in OMNI. We are excited and looking forward to seeing where the school is headed!

Omni International School provides students with a first-class challenging, yet fun-filled educational experience. At 5-years old, my youngest knows the difference between igneous rock and sedimentary rock! My child reads, writes, and speaks Mandarin Chinese, as well as play Chinese checkers! At Omni, the teachers really love the students and treat them as their own. I could not be happier with the high quality education, my children are receiving at Omni!

I am so proud and happy to say my son go to Omni International. It is a wonderful school with dedicated and professional teachers and staff who genuinely care about the students. The students have art, science, playground, computers, and a library. The enrichment programs are very good; my son is a part of the martial arts program. On top of what I have mentioned above, my son is on his way to being fluent in Mandarin.
- Posted by Parent - Sharr
There is no doubt in my mind that Omni International is a one of a kind school. Because of the language immersion concept that they use, our young children are quickly becoming fluent in both Chinese and Spanish. I am impressed with the quality of education my children are receiving, and the teachers put no ceilings on your kids if they have the capacity to do work several grade levels above their current grade level. The enrichment activities for the kids are great as well!

I am very impressed by how comfortable my children are with Chinese and amazed that they are now equally excited about learning Spanish. I am confident that by the time my kids enter middle school they will be functionally tri-lingual. The school is committed to high academic expectations by teaching students well above grade level (but at their own pace). My 3rd grader is literally doing math that 6th graders do. And in certain subjects (like Chinese) my 1st grader is given assignments that his older (3rd grade) brother is working on. And I am equally pleased with the faith-based values that the school reinforces with the children. When I drop my kids off at OMNI, I know three things: they are safe, nurtured, and are being pushed toward excellence.

Sending your child to a single-sex school is one of several options you have when it comes to private schools.
Each state sets its own teacher certification requirements. While many private schools do not require you to be certified, it is in your best interests to obtain certification. This article includes contact information for state education offices so you can begin the process.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
