The Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School (ANCS) is a K-8 APS charter school with two campuses that have been operating in the Grant Park/Ormewood Park neighborhood for the past decade. Neighborhood Charter School (NCS) opened in 2001 serving kindergarten through fifth grade students. Atlanta Charter Middle School (ACMS) opened in 2005 serving sixth through eighth grade students. Both schools stood as centers of community education excellence in southeast Atlanta, gaining recognition from the Georgia Department of Education and the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement for outstanding student performance on state assessments. The merger of these two schools established a framework for sharing resources between the former ACMS and NCS, while jointly pursuing a common goal of continuing to providing an innovative small-school alternative choice within the Atlanta Public Schools that actively involves families from the diverse neighborhoods of southeast Atlanta.
ANCS is a member of the Coalition of Essential Schools (CES), a national network of schools focused on creating schools that are intellectually challenging, personalized, and democratic. CES schools are brought together by a shared commitment to 10 Common Principles that guide teaching, learning, and decision-making at each school. Numerous studies have shown that students in CES schools demonstrate a high level of progress academically and personally.
