A Life of the Mind Begins Young

As essential to the remarkable success of the luxury condos at Atlantic Station as their design and location, their services and amenities, and their sheer altitude, is the nature and quality that residents find in the selection of schools available nearby. Because there are many noteworthy schools, let’s profile some of the conspicuous examples.

In view of the advantages of pre-kindergarten education, providing a base of confidence, social, and emotional well-being that sticks with a child and bears fruit through the rest of school and adult life as well, let’s include a couple of pre-k possibilities here, too.

As any history buff or Anglophile will tell you, it’s the simplest names that often denote the richest heritage. This certainly may be the case with The Children’s School. Located just nine minutes from the private residences of The Atlantic, The Children’s School devotes itself to the mission of enriching minds and inspiring dreams. One parent described it as “one of the best, most progressive schools in Atlanta. We couldn’t be happier with our time there.” Offering a journey in transformative learning, The Children’s School leads children to discover their strengths, their interests, their passions.

Another option for parents – or future parents – perusing the condos for sale in Midtown Atlanta is the Primrose School of Druid Hills. Yes, even for midtown children it is only minutes away. Continuity is an advantage to consider, and it comes into play with the Primrose School’s offering of child care and daycare, along with pre-school education. This way, the children of a career couple might reap the benefits of an ongoing experience at Primrose from a very early age, indeed, right up through the time to enter kindergarten.


The Habits of Happiness and Success

The Howard School is focused on the education of K-12 students with language-based learning disabilities. Here, students with neurological differences that challenge one’s ability to process written language sequentially – and their parents – find answers in learning, but also a way of life that continues to enrich and reward.

A characteristic of the approach taken at The Howard School that reads like a guidebook for navigating life in the 21stcentury – or any other century – are the 16 learned tendencies called Habits of Mind. It’s hard to read these insightful characteristics without a degree of desire, even envy. From the simplicity of “persisting,” to the practice of “listening with understanding and empathy,” to “thinking flexibly” and “taking responsible risks,” these 16 habits are to be valued highly in any life. To encounter them early, at The Howard School, would be a great privilege.
