Atlantis Preparatory School
The mission of the Atlantis Preparatory School is to develop each individual to reach their greatest potential by providing an outstanding curriculum, which includes the academics, social and emotional growth, the arts, athletic ability, and the mind/body experience. We are committed to the development of the whole child so that each student can discover his own path to greatness.
Early Learners at Atlantis Prep benefit from a comprehensive program of traditional and non-traditional subjects. Advanced technology is integrated across the academic curriculum. Foreign language and art appreciation are also included.
The Highest Level of Technology Available
Your child is growing up in the age of technology. That’s why we have placed special emphasis on the use of technology in our curriculum. We utilize Apple Televisions and iPads to bring lessons alive. These exceptional teaching tools provide children with vivid memorable images and interactive capabilities for enhanced learning.
Building a Strong Foundation
The most important aspect of early learning is to prepare children for future success and achievement in school and life. Understanding and applying the foundations of math, reading and language arts are perhaps the most important elements in achieving this future success. The stronger your child is in these subjects, the more he or she will excel in higher education and beyond. That’s why these traditional subjects are the focus of our curriculum.
Different Children Learn in Different Ways
Some children are naturally gifted in certain subjects. Others may need special attention. At Atlantis Prep, our philosophy is to develop the whole child - to work with natural abilities and expand your child’s view of the world in a supportive, caring and interactive environment. The goal is to instill a passion for learning that will stay with your child throughout his or her life.
The Importance of Play
Play is a priority at Atlantis Prep. Our play experiences are designed to develop children’s social and readiness skills. Unstructured play times are scheduled for both indoors and outdoors and care is taken when planning appropriate play experiences based upon varied themes throughout the school year. At any given time you may find children on our playgrounds, building with blocks, or engaged in fantasy play while in the dramatic play corner.
A Highly Qualified Teaching Staff
We are devoted to our teachers and educational support staff. Our certified teachers and support staff are offered many training opportunities throughout the school year which helps us assure you and your child a warm, secure and caring professional environment. Our school calendar includes three In-Service Day trainings in which the staff attends “school” while the children are not in session. This allows us to nurture and grow all of our staff with new ideas and strategies that ensures a new and ever-improving curriculum every single year.
Parent involvement is key within Atlantis Prep. Part of good communication is personal contact. We encourage parents to participate in many ways such as guest readers in the classroom, volunteering to perform a special talent or to come in to discuss their career, and by attending or volunteering to help in our special events throughout the year.

Atlantis Prep School Stories
Children are being pushed harder than ever from over scheduled playtime to early emphasis on getting into the best colleges – new pressures to achieve are enormous. The greatest gifts we can give our children include a strong sense of self, an enthusiasm for learning, the ability to think independently and the confidence to explore the world. I feel my son has been given this opportunity while attending classes at the Atlantis Preparatory School. Rather than trying to control and direct the children’s learning, my son’s teachers give them the opportunities to develop their natural artistic, dramatic, linguistic capacities and form bonds within their classmates and the natural world.
We have watched our son learn the alphabet, his numbers, how to spell his name, speak in Spanish, use a computer, make beautiful art projects, and converse on so many varied topics – often leaving us very impressed. We credit you for instilling this knowledge in him.
A thousand thanks for making our son’s year as Atlantis Prep so special. You have truly enriched his world with so much knowledge. He has a thirst for learning, which you met and exceeded every day, and that is all I could ever ask for. We will miss you, and only hope that his teachers in the years to come are as caring and skillful as you are.
Thank you for your excellence in providing Jack with such an amazing early childhood education experience. We were so happy to have Jack attend Atlantis Prep this year. We appreciate the thoughtful and caring manner that you always exhibited toward Jack especially as he made his transition into Atlantis Prep. We are so thrilled with all of Jack’s progress and all of the devotion that you gave to the midstream classroom. The curriculum was engaging, impressive, and developmentally appropriate — we also appreciate the special emphasis that Atlantis Prep placed upon creating and promoting civic-mindedness among the young children.
My children love music and you always make it so fun. Your hard work and dedication shines through everything you do. You are simply amazing.
As soon as I toured the school and met with the teachers, I realized why Atlantis Prep was so highly recommended to me when we moved to the area. My two children had a wonderful time as students, with caring teachers who encourage development in a warm and stimulating environment. Since leaving Atlantis Prep, both of my sons have adjusted beautifully in elementary school. I truly believe that the perfect mix of nurture and structure they received at Atlantis Prep has contributed to their success. Atlantis Prep provided my sons with a strong platform and for that, I will always be grateful.
Thank you for providing a safe, happy and challenging environment these past 10 years for our children. They have a foundation that will sustain them throughout their life and fond memories of their early childhood education. We are extremely grateful to everyone in contributing in their “raising” …it’s not an easy task and we appreciate the assist.
