I went to this school 4 years ago, and it did not help with my education, all my FSA scores were 2-3s and all through the years. I had perfect A+ and then when FSA came my scores were awful so I'm sorry but I do not support this school.

This school is not the best many teachers quit. I learned many things from some teachers, but some teachers don't have the teaching blood running in the veins.

Athenian academy offers many activity's other schools do not such as free Spanish and Greek classes daily, art , Greek chorus, Greek dance and more. Because it is a small school teachers pay more attention to students and they retain more knowledge than the average public school child. Not to mention the safe family feel of a close and cared for school.

Athenian Academy is a wonderful school. I have had the honor to be the school leader for 8 years and have never worked with more loving and genuine staff members and parents. Our school will be moving and expanding in August 2015. We are excited we will be able to offer a larger and more modern facility, enhanced technology and increased programs for our students.
