I went to High School at Galloway in the late 90's and I highly recommend it. I'll be sending my kids there when they are older if I'm living in Atlanta.The class sizes are small and the teachers foster discussions rather than memorization of facts. They are also very flexible, crafting classes for 3 students or even 1 student, at times to meet individual needs and interests. The school places value in fostering a lifetime love of learning, not just learning enough facts to get a diploma. They want their students to be curious and enjoy new experiences and continue the learning process throughout adulthood. The school has expanded since I went, but based on a recent visit back and looking at the classrooms and many of the same teachers still present, it appears that they haven't changed their philosophy even if the buildings and grounds have changed.

From Business: St. John Children's Center is a full day Christian Preschool located at St. John United Methodist Church in the neighborhoods near Chastain Park. Bright classroom…
Par excellent! I am a parent of students at both the EA (elementary academy) and JA (junior academy) the rigor of the curriculum and the dedication of the teachers are unmatched for a public school. My family and I are proud to be Drew Eagles!
We love our school! Our children experience a level of thoughtful, caring education that cannot be found elsewhere in our area. Beyond the regular classroom expectations they are exposed to a vast array of specials ranging from robotics to chorus, to dance and engineering.
We've been at Drew for 5 years now. They focus on project based learning and have put arts back into a STEM curriculum. Drew operates on a STEAM curriculum. It has been a great experience for my kids.
This svhool is aweful. Tne teachers dont do as mich as they can with the children and the faculty supplrts this habbit. The priorities are not at nest intrest of the children.
O k school don't really like it though.
Horrible school. I went and bullying was completely unaddressed. They told you "Don't bully" and then turned a blind eye. I hated the school and am glad to be gone.
It is January. School started in August. The director has yet to say hello to us when we walk in. Still haven't "met" her. We must be invisible. The assistant director who was friendly (when we had a friendly director) last year has changed this year under the new management. See her a lot less too. Would like to know what is up. Very curious. But not curious enough to come back next year!
Riverwood High School is the most mediocre educational institution I’ve ever come across. The faculty and guidance office have no directive to aid students toward success, rather, they believe in punishment as the guiding principle. All parents please listen. DO NOT ALLOW YOUR STUDENT TO ATTEND RIVERWOOD HIGH SCHOOL. The teachers do not believe in helping students in achieving any sort of success. Your student will not receive the necessary education for their future. No student actually enjoys Riverwood High School because of the mindset among faculty that no student should succeed. This is no exaggeration. Riverwood applies rule after rule that does not actually keep delinquent students in check, instead, students who want to achieve further success are restricted, and cannot succeed in Riverwood. Although rules are necessary to keep a safe environment, there lie many unnecessary rules that limit passionate students from achieving extracurricular goals within the school. One notable counselor is Ms. Anne Wilson, who believes her job as a counselor is to successfully shun any student under her supervision. I’ve heard from many students who were colleagues of my own that actually went up to Ms. Anne Wilson and asked her to check their college essays, and instead Ms. Wilson, as a so-called “guidance counselor,” decided to shun her students and say she’s too busy. Other reasons for not attending the school include much drug abuse and bullying. The school’s drug problem is much larger than expected. This environment should be avoided at all costs. Do not allow your student to attend Riverwood, otherwise your student will not utilize his/her full potential and their future will be scarred for the next four years and beyond. Please head my warning.
Very gay-friendly . fit in just fine here
