I am the grandparent of an Atlantis Academy student who has been attending the school for three years and can testify honestly that Atlantis Academy is a fine school for special needs children. My granddaughter, who is now in the Middle tier of Atlantis Academy, could not keep up with her studies in previous schools, even though she had an IEP and special classes most every day. Her one wish was “I would love to be able to stay in one classroom, Grammy, and not feel different from everyone else”. My granddaughter was not having her needs met in those previous schools and had a very low esteem – she knew she was different and wanted so badly to fit it – but it never happened. Then I did some research and learned of the Atlantis Academy program, visited the school, and had my granddaughter spend a day there. The child loved it instantly, felt as if she fit in perfectly, and the teachers were compassionate and caring from the beginning. I would recommend Atlantis Academy for any child who is a special need student in any form. It will be a relief for the child and for the parent who no longer has to struggle on a daily basis with homework, low self-esteem, and academic failure. Kudos to Atlantis Academy!

I’m a parent of a 3rd grade student that is enrolled in Atlantis Academy. My son hated school, disliked doing homework, kids were teasing him, and some teachers were too busy to pay attention. I have to say that my son is so much more motivated and excited to attend school now. He takes more pride in his homework and he’s a happier child. As a parent, I’m very happy and pleased that I took a chance with Atlantis Academy.
We looked at many schools for our Kindergarten-aged son but struggled to find a good fit for him. From the moment we walked into Atlantis Academy we knew we had found a home. During the tour our son felt so comfortable that he sat at a desk in the classroom and never left! The administration and staff are wonderful…they challenge the students to be the best they can be in a loving and caring environment. We truly feel blessed to be part of the Atlantis family.
