My child LOVED IAS from the teachers to the students. International Academy Of Smyrna provides a warm and family environment. My child built a bond with a teacher that still check in with him years later. The teachers at IAS integrates compassion into their teaching standards, emphasizes the importance of values, and builds leaders through each of their classes and lessons. Teachers at IAS are passionate about seeing their students succeed. They are so great about sharing moments of pride they see within your child – their good behaviors and achievements; and they know the importance of getting the parents involved should an issue arise, and do it in a very respectful, approachable manner. My child is now a soaring scholar at Fulton Leadership Academy, where he is a member of the band and chorus.
