  • This is the worst place to be called a school. The administrators are so unprofessional. The administration treats certain parents very disrespectfully AFTER you enroll.

  • There are 25 or more students per class. The majority of the children are ADHD. How can anyone learn at Atlanta Preparatory Academy? I was told that there would be at least 15 children per class. That was a LIE.

  • THIS IS THE WORST SCHOOL MY CHILD HAS EVER ATTENDED. THE ENTIRE SYSTEM IS UNORGANIZED ALL ACROSS THE BOARD. THE LEARNING SYSTEM IS EVEN CONFUSING. DO NOT ENROLL YOUR CHILD IS THIS SCHOOL!

  • Atlanta Preparatory, is the worst charter school in the city of Atlanta. Not only is the school unsafe, it is also unclean. If you want your child to get behind on their education this is the school for them to attend. The Administration is the worst.
