We started our daughter at Suzuki around 17 months old and she's now 3, the school, facilities, faculty, and administration are nothing short of excellent. Our daughter has grown, developed, and learned in many many ways. COVID-19 really showed the quality of the school with regular updates, flexible scheduling, and clear guidance to parents. We're expecting our second and can't wait to have 2 kids at Suzuki!

I have been a Suzuki parent since my son was 18 months, he will be turning 3 next in a few weeks. I started at the Buckhead campus and transferred when the Ponce campus opened since it was closer to home. Suzuki continues to be an excellent choice for parents looking for a full time, year round program. Their reputation has been earned and is well deserved. No school or organization is perfect but the experience and education my child is receiving is top notch. I am confident my son is receiving an experience and education that far exceeds the majority of preschools in Atlanta. Its unfortunate that others have not had such a positive experience and reviews are written with no consideration or knowledge of facts... for example the fact that some teachers may have requested to transfer due to their commute and that certain events like Spooky Suzuki may have cost the Parent Volunteer Association money and that enough volunteers were not available to organize an event that could accommodate all campuses. I am thrilled to be part of the Suzuki family and look forward to another 2 years as an involved parent.

Suzuki was an excellent school for our children. However, once they refocused all of their energy and attention into expanding their revenues and opening another school I realized they do not care about the children as they tout. The Buckhead school was depleted of its dynamic and teacher base to attract and fund the new school leaving classrooms with a majority of substitutes and under qualified assistants. Very little care and regard were given to the current parents (or teachers) in an effort to launch the new school - decisions were made without sufficient parental input, communication was extremely poor and they remain unorganized and ineffective. I wondered why programs like Playball were cancelled as well as why the official Halloween event was changed (rather than off campus its now very scaled back and in the classroom only). These changes were not explicitly communicated as cost saving measures in an effort to open a new school, but once the new school was announced it was apparent they were. The children LOVED those offerings and for them to be taken away in a money making effort were discouraging. If you are looking for an excellent preschool, I suggest that you do not rely on their "history" of excellence, but rather explore it for yourself and definitely visit to make your on conclusions. Find how how the teachers who lead their rooms are qualified. While many of them have been doing montessori education for a while, I found that too teachers were glorified day care teachers and many were just placeholders and did not justify my hard earned money when there are other preschools available.
