There's no place like the The Little School! Not only are teachers excited to teach, but students are eager to learn! From academics to community outreach events, students receive a well rounded education at The Little School!

We are in our seventh year here and could not be more thrilled! The teachers are so fantastic! With such small class sizes, teachers are able to focus on the individual child to academically challenge them and also to support them in their weaker areas. I love the fact my children are in Chapel each week along with daily devotions, music, art, Spanish, and P.E. We simply love The Little School!

Our son Tristin has attended this school for 4 years. I can honestly say this has been the best choice we could have made as parents. The values and education our son receives there are outstanding. Best school in NE Ga by far.

Very high academic standards for all types of learners. Faculty is very professional, caring, and involved in the lives of the students. Students are exposed and taught through various art, Spanish, and music classes. TLS is a fabulous environment for my child and I absolutely love the community involvement.
