BEST Academy High School: Atlanta, Georgia
Volunteers4Humanity made its Georgia debut. Meeting potential volunteers, students, elected officials, and businessmen, today was indeed a busy day. One educational institution that captivated our organization was in the zip code 30318.
In 2007, the Atlanta School Board decided to implement a new way of educating these students. Based on the research by Michael Gurian, author of "The Minds of Boys,"
Best Academy High School was established.
Best is an acronym for Business, Engineering, Science, and Technology. Since inception, the Academy has demonstrated study improvement in both graduation rates and test scores. We wish them continued success!
