Wood Acres is a fantastic grammar school in East Cobb. The teachers are academically focused but at the same time, allow the students to be creative and artistic. The campus is beautiful and the students spend a lot of time outside learning. We love the school and everyone that is a part of the Wood Acres family.

Wood Acres is the best preschool and grammar school in East Cobb! They have a very strong academic focus and the teachers are so wonderful. Teachers have been at Wood Acres an average of 15 years or more. The campus is AMAZING! All classrooms have beautiful picture windows of the outside. We love Wood Acres because we feel like a family here!
