Our family personally deals that GWA is a great experience in all aspects.

While no one place is perfect, GWA was the perfect fit for my family. GWA produced two young adults who were not only fully prepared for college, but who also found themselves ahead of their peers in the collegiate environment. And my children were both B students at GWA, but were top in their freshman classes. I am pleased with the experience we had and continue to stay in touch with the school. There are a lot of exciting programs being introduced under new leadership.

GWA is run by a select group of teachers, parents, and other staff. If you complain about anything your child becomes a target. And, you are gossiped about by those parents and teachers. The school reminds me of the adult version of mean girls. One counselor i have had experience with is horrible! Anywhere else she would be fired. Don't waste your money at this school if you're not one of the "chosen" ones.

GWA lacks any effective leadership whatsoever. Certain administrators, teachers and parents control this school and intentionally make life beyond difficult for students who do not fit the GWA mold. The lengths to which these people will go to label those students has to be seen to be believed. I was repeatedly shocked at the behavior of adults associated with GWA. The school's mission statement may give lip service to the individuality of every child, but not in real life. Discipline is administered based on who the child is related to or if the child's parent is a teacher. If a parent stands up to the school or advocates for her child, the retaliation, gossip and rumors directed toward the child and her parents can be relentless. These are not idle experiences but are shared between current and former GWA parents/students. There is a reason neighboring private schools are experiencing growth in student enrollment. I would never recommend that anyone send their child here. The sad thing is that at one time, I actively supported this school and encouraged friends and co-workers to consider GWA for their children. There are far better options elsewhere which present school environments which nurture the students and are grounded in consistency, kindness and respect. The positive difference in my children's attitudes, self esteem and even behavior was readily apparent within 3 weeks after leaving GWA. No more feeling of being targeted by adults who should know better and their children who mistreat classmates without concern of correction.

My oldest son is going into the sixth grade at GWA and my youngest is going to be starting kindergarten. I have been extremely pleased with this school. My son is very sensitive and not very athletic, but the teachers, other parents and even his classmates have always been so understanding of his unique personality and he has made so much progress here over the years. He has become so much more independent with his schoolwork and he actually enjoys going to school. His friends are some of the sweetest, most polite and helpful kids I've ever met. I know there have been many changes in teachers and staff over the past couple of years, but I see so many good changes that are happening for the school as well. I think the administration is able to think outside the box and make changes that are constantly improving the well-being of the school and the students. I think being able to adapt in a way that helps our students and implement creative new ideas as soon as they are brought to the attention of teachers and administrators is the biggest benefit of a private school. We are not big donors to the school, but I am very involved. Every time we have had any kind of concern or issue arise, I have found the teachers and administrators eager to jump in and help resolve the situation. My son is smart, but not the smartest, he is motivated, but not the most motivated, and he is not athletic at all. He is the kind of kid that might fall through the cracks in a public school, but at George Walton, everyone knows him. The teachers encourage him, the administrators, parents and staff say hello to him when they see him and I feel like they are really are our extended family. I feel like they all truly care about him. I am a very overprotective mom, but at George Walton, I feel like I don't really have to worry. I love GWA!
