Elite Scholars Academy is a great school for academic and achievement performance. This school offers a variety of Honors and Advanced Placement courses and requires a lot of hardwork and dedication from us students. I feel that I am very blessed to be accepted in such a rigorous school because everyone doesn't get the oppurtunity that I have had. Overall, the school itself it well maintained and the diversity amongst it allows for me to feel welcome and safe!

I have been attending Elite Scholars Academy for 4 years now. The administration is extremely strict on the uniform. The courses are very rigorous and many AP courses are offered; college courses have been easier for me than Elite classes. The school also incorporates a lot of sports so that the school is not solely based on academics; it is well rounded. Sports offered include basketball, soccer, tennis, swim, and track. Unfortunately, elite does not offer football. The teachers are usually strict on work and deadlines, and sometimes understanding. In terms of diversity, students at elite are mainly minorities, since the school is located in Clayton County. Clubs offered include anime club, Beta Club, Academic decathlon, and more. Parent involvement in the school is extremely high.
What I like about Elite Scholars are the no tolerance for academic failure. Every teacher around you pushes you to limits you didn't know you had. The only thing I dislike is not being able to wear black pants (feminine reasons), having to wear the blazer outfit every single Wednesday and field trip, and the year long school choice. I am really impressed with the high technology students like me are able to use in every single classroom!
