School Reviews

I am a parent of a 6th grade and 8th grade student. I simply can not say enough about TFS. My children are thriving and simply love their school! The faculty are truly interested in each student and care about their success. Class sizes are very small and have a "family" feel. Academics are challenging, preparing students for the next grade level and beyond. The staff is friendly and extremely helpful. The facilities are beautiful and constantly growing/improving under the outstanding school leadership. Students are able to participate in many extracurricular activities. There are many sports offerings and students of all ability levels are able to participate. Students in middle school experience a class trip each year, learning out of the classroom is taken very seriously! If you are looking for a college prep middle/high school in North GA... this is it!
