Exceeding Expectations

Growing as Quickly as Our Students

The past five years have been exciting ones for Museum School families, who have built a top-quality school with a tremendous grassroots, volunteer effort.

Since the school’s opening in 2010, its student population has more than doubled, a middle-school program has been added, and the school moved into a fantastic permanent location! With that growth comes the task of funding all renovation costs for a facility that dates back to the 1950s.

Exceeding Expectations, our capital campaign, will support a five-year renovation process, and we need your support. Please join us as we tackle the challenges of the next few years in The Museum School’s exciting journey.

Learn more about the renovations, our capital campaign and how you can help!

 
 

The Exceeding Expectations Capital Campaign: Take Part in Building Something Exceptional

Exceeding Expectations is The Museum School Foundation's fundraising campaign to support renovations at our new facility through 2016. Once renovations are complete, our school will include 86,000 square feet of classroom and ancillary space. This is an important milestone for our school, and we hope you will join us in this capital campaign. Your donation, in any amount, will help us on our road to continued success.

Historic Fox Theatre Now a Museum School Curricular Partner!


The Museum School is thrilled to announce the addition of the prestigious Fox Theatre as a new curricular partner!

Through learning expeditions and classroom lessons, the partnership calls for Museum School third graders and fifth graders to take part in a new Fox Theatre outreach program that explores the Fox's history as an Atlanta icon in the 20th century South. The program eventually will be recorded and broadcast by Georgia Public Broadcasting.

With expansive education departments of their own, curricular partners have a direct tie-in to The Museum School's curriculum and are compatible with our education model. Curricular partners play a critical role in shaping student experience, and we are delighted to count the renowned Fox Theatre among our closest partners!

Way to Go Explorers!

For the third consecutive year, Museum School students earned impressive scores on the statewide CRCT.

Our fourth and fifth graders did exceptionally well: 100% met or exceeded state standards in all five subject areas!

Among our third graders, 100% met or exceeded state standards in Social Studies and English/Language Arts; in addition, 98% of them met or exceeded standards in Reading, 93% met or exceeded standards in Science, and 90% met or exceeded standards in Math.

Congratulations to our Explorers!

Get to Know The Museum School

When you step inside The Museum School, you know right away that this is a different kind of public school. By partnering with museums and learning institutions, we offer students real-life experience with classroom lessons and allow them to make discoveries driven by their own curiosity. Our education model encourages exploration, inspires creativity and fosters enthusiasm for learning.

This is hands-on learning at its best. This is The Museum School of Avondale Estates.

Exhibit Night: When Our Little Explorers Shine!

Exhibit Night is a special time at The Museum School: You never know who or what you'll find on display. Four times a year, our students re-enact pivotal moments in history, conduct science experiments and show off their work, from hand-crafted zoos and rainforest models to sun dials, gravity rooms, a student garden and so much more! Be our guest at the next Exhibit Night: Thursday, May 15th from 6-8 p.m.
