Drew is a breathe of fresh air. This is our first year and already it's like night and day from where we came from. Both kids are in TAG but have been introduced to some pretty incredible things that expand way beyond. Very pleased and happy to have them as a partner in my childrens education.

I attended Drew Charter from grades 2nd to 8th (2001-2008) and I must say it was a great experience! All of my teachers were very helpful in many different ways.

We are in our 4th year at Drew Charter School and I can't say enough great things about the school. We have a very supportive staff and great parents. The kids have been exposed to so many great opportunities that they otherwise would not have experienced. We are very lucky to have found this school.

Drew Charter school is a 5 star school! It is a top notch academic school with concerned faculty and supporting staff. The security team is ever present and my kids are safe. I only wish there was a Drew University.

Friends advised that if we were moving to GA, to only consider private or public schools in the suburbs. We're so glad we chose to live in town and most importantly, Drew. So far we have zero regrets. ...  Read more

Both of my children are currently at this school. We have been thoroughly impressed. Not only are the teachers and administration thoroughly involved, but the curriculum is truly unique for Atlanta. Furthermore, the after school program is the outstanding.

About 6 months ago we transferred 2 kids from private school to Drew. Obviously we were nervous about what type of education our kids would receive here. Well, so far its been great, far surpassing our expectations. If things continue to go this well we will be here until high school graduation. I m ...  Read more
