Open Quote Positive and warm atmosphere. Lots of administrative support and access to technology. Students have many choices among clubs, teams, sports, internships, etc to allow them to explore their interests. The academics are challenging, but staff members really support and encourage students. Close Quote

Open Quote Many parents pulled their children out of Atkins in 2016. Most of the time your residential school will be a better fit for your child. Atkins does not a well rounded child and the teachers do not seem to care about the students. After moving my child, I found the other school has better teachers and administration. Atkins looks good on the surface but not when you have to deal with the administration and the teachers. Close Quote

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.
