Atlanta International School to hold forum on campus changes
The meeting will be held at the AIS Early Learning Center, 34 Peachtree Avenue, in the multipurpose room.
Among the items to be discussed will be the school’s purchase of two apartment complexes and a single family home, which flank the school’s Early Learning Center and which the school wants to turn into parking lots for use by the students and faculty, according to information received by BuckheadView.
AIS apparently recently purchased the three properties in order to remove the parking lots from the main campus and provide enough space on the main campus to enlarge the sports field from approximately three-quarters to full-size.
Included in the plans is a rerouting of the student drop-off/pickup staging route at the main campus.
AIS is also seeking permission to increase its student enrollment limit by 185 and must obtain that permission from the Garden Hills neighborhood, The school’s present enrollment limit was established as part of negotiations between Garden Hills and AIS when the school took over the former North Fulton High School campus.
The school’s administration claims that the present limit creates a problem for many of the families who have students enrolled in the school, but cannot enroll younger siblings. Those parents often have to enroll the younger siblings in other public or private schools in the area.
