Purpose of the Aha! Education Guide

I often tell people how wonderful it is to live in an area with so many diverse and outstanding choices available for our children’s education.  As I’ve grown older, been a parent for longer, and gotten to know so many diverse children (& parents), I’ve determined that there is DEFINITELY not a “one size fits all” choice for education.  Each child and family is unique and the Dunwoody/Sandy Springs/Chamblee/Brookhaven area is surrounded by a multitude of great school choices where you are probably going to be able to find a really good fit for YOUR child!
On my journey to find the perfect educational fit for my sons I  have realized something very important.   Nothing is PERFECT and there are pros and cons to each choice.  I have researched public, private, and home-school options.  My sons have attended  church/private preschools,  public schools and private.  We evaluate the best fit for our boys one year at a time, one kid at a time.  The verdict for 7th and 10th grades thus far is….so far so good! 
Because I have thoroughly researched education for my family,  I learned very quickly that the private school application process can be quite daunting and the variety of school choices is vast and can be overwhelming.   I wanted to help others by creating this “Aha! Education Guide”.  My goal is to share important dates for things like open houses, testing, and application deadlines.  Also to give you important reference information for all the public, private, and home-school choices in our area.  

If you have ideas about what I can include in the next edition of our education guide then please let me know.   I hope to continue to improve this tool!  I welcome your suggestions for changes, improvements, additions, corrections etc.

Many area schools have contacted me to spread the news about what they have to offer…. so I’ve given them a little space to spread their messages in the Aha! Education guide!  If your school wants to learn about how they can share information in future  Education Guides and on our website, then click here to email Leigh to obtain more information!
I hope this information is helpful for you…..have a great weekend!
