Acorn to Oaks Foundation

Welcome to Garden Hills Elementary School, a dynamic learning environment with top-notch educators, an inspiring principal, and happy families. Students at GHES enjoy going to school each day in a beautiful, historic building where they are greeted by smiling teachers and students who love their school and are happy to be there.

 

Garden Hills celebrates being the first public elementary school in Georgia to receive certification in the highly acclaimed and world-renowned International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme. In fact, the North Atlanta cluster offers the only public schools in Georgia to offer the fully articulated International Baccalaureate K-12 educational model.

 

Garden Hills celebrates being the first public elementary school in Georgia to receive certification in the highly acclaimed and world-renowned International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme. In fact, the North Atlanta cluster offers the only public schools in Georgia to offer the fully articulated International Baccalaureate K-12 educational model.

 

Founded in 1938 and situated on nearly 10 acres in an urban forest neighborhood in the Buckhead Community, Garden Hills Elementary is part of the Atlanta Public School system and home to approximately 500 students.

 

Nestled among the older homes and stately trees of Atlanta’s historic Garden Hills neighborhood, our school is arguably one of the most beautiful examples of neoclassical style architecture in the city. It was designed by the firm of Hentz, Adler & Shutze, home to famed Atlanta architect Philip Trammell Shutze, and is a frequently referenced example of his work.

 

In 2001, the school underwent a renovation that added a new cafeteria and classrooms. In addition to the original auditorium that is still in use, the school has a large gymnasium, art room, music room, and computer lab. The playground space includes a large, grassy field, play structures, swings, and a basketball court.

 

Garden Hills became the first public elementary school in the state of Georgia to obtain certification to offer the highly respected International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme. We enjoy one of the lowest student-to-teacher ratios in our area, offer Spanish as a foreign language in grades 1 through 5, have P.E. twice a week, and daily outdoor recess for every grade. Students in our Gifted & Talented program routinely compete and prevail in academic contests throughout the region. Every student enjoys weekly classes in both Music and Art. Technology is abundant and well-integrated in every classroom including Promethean interactive white boards, desktop computers, and iPads.

 

The staff of over 50 educators and support personnel is committed to creating an environment in which children thrive. We invite you to visit us, talk to other GHES parents, and see why people call our school “Buckhead’s Hidden Treasure.

 

Acorns to Oaks Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose sole purpose is to raise money to support enriching educational opportunities for every child at Garden Hills Elementary.

 

Tax-deductible donations to the Foundation support the Garden Hills Elementary wish-list:

 

• International Baccalaureate Primary Years Instructional (IB PYP) Programming:

Did you know that Garden Hills Elementary was the first APS school to achieve IB accreditation in 2006? With your generous donations, the Foundation ensures professional development for teachers as well as software and subscriptions that allow teachers to plan and implement lessons and document student work within the 6 Units of Inquiry, each school year.

 

• Spanish Dual Immersion program for kindergarten and first grade with rigorous language and content instruction daily in English and Spanish. This program will expand with the current first grade class and by 2020, Garden Hills Elementary will have dual language from K through 5th grade

.

• Orton Gillingham training to support early literacy skills using a sensory approach for students who may be struggling to learn to read. 

 

• Field trips and performances both in-school as well as away from school to enhance student learning and exposure to rich cultural and engaging academic experiences in the community and beyond.

 

• Support for our Learning Gardens which allows students to see how healthy fruits, vegetables, and herbs are grown on campus during the school year. Each class has a garden bed to provide students opportunities to plant, care for and harvest healthy foods like kale, carrots, pumpkins, lettuce and watermelon.
