About Us

Purpose Built Schools Atlanta is part of an innovative partnership with Atlanta Public Schools, providing management services for under performing schools in south Atlanta. Our vision of success is to see every child living in our neighborhoods on a trajectory for success through college and in their careers. We believe we can provide outstanding results for our students and communities through high-quality instruction, intentional interventions and enrichment opportunities, and a strategic approach to serving our families’ needs beyond the schools’ walls.

The neighborhoods of south Atlanta have been served by schools that have not historically ensured opportunity for all the students in their care. These schools include Slater Elementary, Thomasville Heights Elementary, Price Middle and Carver High schools. PBSA is committed to leveraging our unique structure and best practices to help students who attend our schools discover their excellence--and improve the neighborhoods where they live.

The key to our success is innovative, caring educators who come to school every day excited to help students--and their families--discover their excellence.

Our teachers are leaders. We approach professional development and training for our teachers from a completely different perspective than traditional schools. We are committed to building a leadership pipeline from within, supporting and cultivating our future school leadership team. We have created a unique model that supports and honors the dedication of our teachers.

Our teachers are innovators. Purpose Built Schools Atlanta teachers are encouraged to identify opportunities to meet the needs of students and our community, and they have access to resources to try their ideas.

 Our teachers make a difference. Purpose Built Schools Atlanta teachers have a fierce belief in their students, a relentless commitment to working hard and the tenacity to do hard work.
