Dear Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School Family,

I am honored and humbled to serve as the Executive Director of ANCS, and look forward to working with all of you over the course of the year. ANCS has a long history of innovative educational practices focused on the whole child. We intentionally foster communities of care within each classroom, and emphasize the development of healthy interpersonal relationships between students, students and adults, and parents and teachers. We understand that it takes all of us working together to provide all students with the educational experience they deserve.

Our teachers and staff are our most important asset. With a 97% staff retention rate, we pride ourselves on consistency and providing our staff with the resources they need to do what’s best for children. Our students receive a high quality education based on constructivist learning practices, that center social emotional development and experiential learning. At both campuses, all students have the opportunity to participate on our school farms, which remain one of our signature programs here at ANCS.

Throughout the course of the year, I hope you will immerse yourself in our school family and take advantage of the many wonderful opportunities we provide here at ANCS. If you have questions or I can be of assistance, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

With gratitude,



Dr. Alastair Pullen
