Exceptional Education

Exceptional Student teachers and assistants offer comprehensive programs and services to students with special learning needs. Program specialists and intervention teachers work with classroom teachers to provide systematically designed instruction.

Gifted Services

The Museum School of Avondale Estates offers a gifted resource class called Explorers² for elementary students through 6th grade. In 7th and 8th grades, gifted-eligible students receive support and subject advancement from a gifted-endorsed teacher as part of their language arts or math class. The Museum School screens students for gifted assessment each year following the guidelines of the Georgia Department of Education. Learn about Explorers² program eligibility

English Language Learners

The Museum School of Avondale Estates provides instructional services to students who are identified as English Language Learners (ELL). Instruction focuses on acquiring and improving English language usage in the areas of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Students who have a home language other than English are screened for qualification using the World-Class Instructional Design and Assessment (WIDA) Screener.

Each year ELL students take the Assessing Comprehension and Communication in English State-to-State (ACCESS for ELLs) test to monitor their progress with English language acquisition. Students who are eligible to exit ELL services following ACCESS testing are monitored for two additional years to ensure their continued success.
