Our Background

The Museum School of Avondale Estates was begun by the Avondale Education Association with a goal of creating an innovative public school for grades K-8 built on academic achievement and strong community involvement. The museum concept is a proven school model that provides project-based learning through partnerships with museums and other community organizations. Students learn collaboratively by engaging in real-world projects and mentorships with these experts.

The effort to bring this school to central DeKalb County began in July 2008 and has truly been a community-wide effort. Since its inception, the school has received tremendous support from government officials and local businesses as well as countless volunteers who generously donated their time and expertise to make the school a reality.
