The Friends School of Atlanta is a mainstream educational environment that strives to deliver excellent academics to a diverse classroom community. Students at FSA learn at different paces, have a variety of passions and gifts and enjoy different aspects of the school day from hands-on science to dramatic performance to recess games to reading workshop to art workshop. This diverse learning environment has been successful in helping students develop individual potential in a nurturing, cooperative environment. FSA has a low teacher-to-student ratio and classroom teachers who understand how to differentiate instruction within a mainstream classroom setting.
As a small school, FSA has an excellent support staff, including learning specialists and a school counselor available to provide a small number of students with targeted educational or counseling intervention. We offer these descriptions of our programs to give you a taste of the FSA experience. Since it is difficult to capture the spirit, depth, energy and warmth of our school using words and pictures alone, we invite you to learn more about our school by scheduling a visit to our campus in Decatur.
