For many parents, sending their kids to preschool is often a nerve racking and tedious process. They carefully comb through each institution in search of the best school for their child. For a few lucky families the search stops at Buckhead Preparatory School, an academic preschool dedicated to preparing children for their next level of education.
The care and instruction found at Buckhead Preparatory School cannot be matched. Teaching to individual children rather than the class allows each student to be challenged and reach their fullest potential. Nearly all Buckhead Prep students who apply to private schools are accepted to their first choice and many children who go on to attend public schools are placed in more academically challenging programs.
In 2014, Buckhead Prep moved to their new location in Smyrna Market Village. In their new space, the school has been able to double their number of clients and increase the number the teachers. The move has allowed the school to maintain healthy growth and ensure that the enrollment numbers for the next academic year remain strong.
