Thanks to Hannah Macnorlin for her work with FSA students at our Human Rights Day celebratio
n. Articles 13 and 14 of the United Nations Declaratio n on Human Rights were explored. The right to asylum a...nd to seek refuge is a basic human right and our students learned about the plight of young Central Americans immigratin g to the US.
Choosing Friends School of Atlanta for our daughter has been, hands down, the best parenting decision we have ever made. From our first tour, we were taken by their commitment
to each child as an indi...vidual, and to each child's growth, not just academical ly, but socially and emotionall y as well. Just one semester in, I can confidentl y say they truly live up to their promises. Our daughter is a quiet, introspect ive child who is generally content to hang back. We were happy with her previous school, but she seemed to get overlooked and left behind. We didn't realize how much she wasn't learning before, until we saw the change in her at FSA. Now she comes home telling us stories of what she's learning, and classes she loves. It is evident she's become a full participan t in her education and community, not just a bystander. The FSA community itself is also something to behold. With a history rooted in the civil rights movement, and a philosophy that embraced mindfulnes s centuries before "mindfulne ss" was cool, FSA focuses on and teaches us all to focus on the good in every person. They model the values of simplicity , peace, integrity, community, equality and stewardshi p every day. If you are looking for a school that will truly "get" your child, and encourage them to be their best self, academical ly, socially, emotionall y and as a citizen of the world, you could not find a better school.
Our family came to The Friends School of Atlanta after years at another, highly sought-aft
er, independen t school in Atlanta. Our son loved his old school. Even so, after just a few weeks at Friends, h...e volunteere d that he wished we'd known about The Friends School of Atlanta all along. He has blossomed in many wonderful ways. Of course, the school has top notch academics; we would not have considered it otherwise. But it has so much more. With the foundation the school provides, he can accomplish whatever he desires, and he knows it. We could not ask for more.

My daughter has grown so much academical
ly and socially at Friend's. She loves going to school now. The environmen t is terrific, supportive , and character building. Their ability to teach to indivi...dual children, and show them learning as a way of life, has been wonderful to watch. We are all happier as a family for having Friends.
It was a joy to be with young future voters during silent (really not so silent) meeting - and to know that they are learning about integrity,
community, peace and equality.
