    Atrium School has created an unbelievable learning environment for my daughter. The faculty and staff are kind, innovative, creative and genuinely understand how children learn best. I watched my daughter blossom into a mature, articulate and socially conscious child who is engaged in the learning process. If you are looking for a down to earth community that fosters a love of learning in children, you have come to the right place. I can't recommend it highly enough!

    Atrium School is a hidden gem, a leader in the field. It does what a lot of schools say they do, but they actually accomplish: a warm, community environment that creates independent, divergent thinkers and innovative problem-solvers who are truly civic-minded. I sent my older children to other area private schools because I didn't know about Atrium then - I wish I had, they would have had a much more joyful and satisfying school experience.
    Atrium School is like a large wonderbox where everything inside these walls is brimming with excellence and joy. Can't recommend this progressive school enough. Don't take my word for it, check it out for yourself!
