Building Innovative Solutionists
Atlanta SMART Academy is a tuition free charter school located in southwest Atlanta. We opened our doors to 122 students in August of 2021 and have grown to serve over 200 students (80% from low income families) from nine different counties across Metro Atlanta. We call our students "solutionists." They engage in project-based learning to solve real- world problems.
We are the only public performing arts middle school in southwest Atlanta and projected to serve 400 students over the next two years. After just one year, our teachers have increased the percent of students reading on grade level by more than 40%, and exposed all students to performing arts through arts classes and experiences.
