Student Testimonials:

"Atlanta Country Day School did for my child what other schools couldn't do. Thanks to ACDS."

"Patience and flexibility are the strengths of the faculty and administration. They listened to the challenges of our child and remained focused on assisting him in pursuing his academic goals. The program they developed and support they provided allowed him to graduate on schedule and gain acceptance to his first choice for college!"

"I have had two children attend Atlanta Country Day school. They do an excellent job with students that have not been successful in the traditional public school environment. They will craft a program that will meet your child's needs in preparing them for college and keeping them interested in school. The staff at ACDS takes a genuine interest in their students - who become part of the ACDS family. No student falls through the cracks because the teachers and administration keep a close eye on how each student is progressing. I would recommend ACDS as an excellent option to be considered."

"ACDS was an absolute lifesaver for our son! This school not only focuses on what a child learns but how he learns. The teachers are exceptional and the administration is incredibly responsive to all issues that may arise. This school works to insure that each child excels in all areas, including academics. Jan and Mel succeed at providing a nurturing environment along with personal accountability for each student. This truly is an extended family and will always be counted as part of the village that assisted in raising our son. We are so very thankful for ACDS, and all it has meant to our family. ACDS is truly an amazing place."

"Atlanta Country Day School has given me freedom to express my creativity. Unlike other schools I have been to in the past. I am given individual attention that I desperately need. This school has adequately prepared me for college."

"I have been to many other schools in the past and out of all of them I have never had as much individual attention as I do at Atlanta Country Day. This school has taught me many skills to become prepared for college and begin my financial future. This school truly has given me a great grounding for life and is an exciting atmosphere to learn in."

"Before coming to Atlanta Country Day School I was at two very strict and impersonal schools. In the large classes there was no English being spoken by the students or teachers. But here the teachers are friendly and personable. The class sizes are small and each student gets a lot of attention. In my ESOL classes the student to teacher ratio is 2-1. With all the interaction with the faculty, teachers, and students my English and communication skills have really improved. I am very happy at Atlanta Country Day School and I am returning for my senior year with an expected graduation date of May 2011. I know that the advanced education that I am acquiring at Atlanta Country Day School will prepare me for college.
In summary, ACDS has both meet and exceeded all my expectations of education and needs in America. I highly recommend ACDS to any perspective high school students in China who would like to come to the United States to complete his or her education."
