Open Quote Kindezi is a hidden gem in our city. The teachers and staff are passionate about getting students excited about learning. It's been such a joy watching my child thrive there. Close Quote

Open Quote I am a parent of a rising 6th grader at Kindezi. Kindezi is now a K-6 school and will eventually be a K-8 school at the start of the 2015/16 school year.

It is a wonderful school. Class sizes average 6-8 per class so all children get individual attention. Kindezi has high expectations for all children and all are expected to learn and will be given any assistance they need to ensure they are on grade level or advancing at an appropriate pace for those who come in above grade level.

It was released that our 5th graders last year at Kindezi outscored all other 5th graders in the APS school district, including top performing schools in Buckhead. If you check the 2013 5th grade CRCT results our students passed 100% of Reading, Math, and Social Studies, and 96% were proficient in Science.

There is no such thing as an achievement gap at Kindezi, though most of our students are black, we also have more diversity at our school than practically any other on the Westside of Atlanta due to parents choosing to send their children to our school versus private schools. Kindezi is a public charter school and they provide sports teams along with after school enrichment for students. I always tell people that with the individualized instruction method, the use of differentiation, project based learning, and wonderful, caring teachers, that Kindezi is like a free private school.

Any time I ask my child over the course of the 4 years he has been at Kindezi, "did you learn anything today?" He always tells me something new they discussed at school. They have recess everyday, which even as a middle schooler, he loves. They use the NWEA MAP assessment to ensure that Kindezi students are competitive with other schools in other states as CRCT standards are lower than other nationally based assessments and Kindezi is well above average on MAP. My son scored in the 90th percentiles for both math and reading on MAP.

If you are a parent looking for a small, family like school that your child can remain in from K-8 and where they will finish their text books every year, have recess, have educational field trips, caring teachers, and no bullying whatsoever in the school (this is taken VERY seriously) then we will welcome you to the Kindezi family.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
