Atlanta Neighborhood Charter named 2015 Charter School of the Year
Congratulations to Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School for being named the Georgia Charter Schools Association 2015 Charter School of the Year.
The award honors excellence in Georgia’s growing charter school community and is given to a school that “demonstrates academic excellence, strong governance, operational sustainability, and sound fiscal practices.” Along with being named charter school of the year, ANCS will also receive a $50,000 grant from The Coca-Cola Foundation. How awesome is that?
Atlanta Neighborhood Charter is a K-8 school with two campuses formed by the merger of two successful charter schools — Neighborhood Charter School (NCS) which opened in 2001 and serves K-5 students; and Atlanta Charter Middle School (ACMS) which opened in 2005 and serves 6th-8th grade students.
The merger of the two schools establishes a great framework for them to share resources and pursue a common goal. That goal is to provide an innovative small school alternative choice within Atlanta Public Schools that actively involves the diverse families of southeast Atlanta neighborhoods.
