Camp Barney Mednitz is a disaster. It is all about getting as many campers that pay full tuition and the cheapest help to take care of them. Jim Mittenthal is one of the worst examples for a leader that I have ever witnessed. He places counselors in cabins with little or no training regardless of the needs of the camper. Barney is a disaster waiting to happen. I will never forgive myself for entrusting my children to this Director. He speaks a good game like he cares about your kids but plays favorites and could care less about your kid. I f your kid is his favorite then there is a good chance they will have fun and be safe. If your kid or your kid's counselor is not on his favorite list then watch out!!!!The Executive leadership will back up anything Mittenthal does as he is a producer financially for the MJCCA.

My three boys are enrolled in this school. They attend the Sunday Bulgarian language classes. The teachers are very professional and treat my children with love and respect. They learn the Bulgarian language, play games, learn songs, do art and crafts and much more. The school also offer half a day childcare during the week for very reasonable prices. I wish we lived closer (we live in Suwanee) so I could take them to this school more often, not only on Sunday. It is great for families who live near by and need safe and affordable child care.

The Heiskell school is a Christ centered school with strong academics and the teachers want each student to reach his potential. Small class size is a plus.

This is an sub standard institution - Only send you children there if you want them to fall behind the public school while hemorrhaging tuition dollars better spend elsewhere - Beware !

TERRIBLE school. Teacher's are mean to the students and are very showy to media and parents to act better then they are. DON'T send your kids here!!!!!!

Church offers many mission opportunities. The 11am service is relaxed, warm and welcoming. I also enjoy the Sunday evening come as you are Crossroads service. Great christian rock music, singing and conversation. People are friendly.

My 10-year-old son's month was a nightmare. Mr. Mittenthal told us my son would live with boys he knew; he then placed him in a cabin with kids he'd never met. The first night, my son asked the counselor to walk him to the bathroom & the counselor refused. My son wet his bed & the counselor left the smelly sheets by his bed until laundry day. Staff found his fear of the outdoors funny & encouraged other boys bullying. The nurse knew my son had accidents but he was embarrassed to bring dirty clothes & bedding to be washed. He threw away his medicine, hoping to get sick enough to be sent home. Staff told kids to write only positive notes home. My son returned with bags of clothes & bedding soaked in urine & feces. His temperature was 101. He had not taken medication for over a week. He spent the next week in the hospital. He threatened to kill himself if we sent him to camp again. The camp was negligent and abusive to my child. He returned physically ill & emotionally scarred.

My daughter attended Worthy Early Learning 21 years ago before it became the Christian Academy and it was one of the best experiences of her life and my life. She has never forgotten the Worthy family and the tremendous impact they made on our family's lives. They focus on cleanliness, discipline, learning through fun and is consistent about building the curiosity in children. Most of all they love the children and the children know it. It was divine intervention that lead me to the Worthy's because when I first arrived to Atlanta a friend of mine recommended her child's day care. I had my doubts when I saw it so I made unannounced visits, looked through the windows, etc. I saw my child and her child in their cribs all day and children crying. I removed my child immediately and found the Worthy's. My friend also removed her child a few weeks later and entered him into Worthy's Early Learning Center (then) also. We still keep in contact to this day. Anytime I am in Atlanta on business I make it my business to contact the school or just go by and tour it for nostalgic reasons alone. As you can see I highly recommend this school of excellence.

We leave our children in the day care thinking and strongly believing that they will teach good information and take care .But here teacher Amy who had taken advantage on me.Give false report on me and it took 3 weeks for me to prove that I did not do.here is the incident that actually happened : I tried to park my car with the ridiculous parking space that they have in the parking lot and saw silver 4 door car in the next parking and realised that its going to colllide and took reverse and saw whether any scratch ,luckily no scratch made by my car.So i parked in other parking lot.This person Amy who works as a teacher in Day care ,was in the bus fixing the alarm saw this incident and around 2 called police and gave report on me and she had said to the policec that i collided one of her teachers Adrealin car which is Gold 2 door car.Luckily I had a witness and after 3 weeks fight i proved my insurance agency that this is a false claim ,but insurance paid 704 $ for the scratch (not even $10 worth scratch) as they had written agreement with the opposite party insurance.Moreover in the police report they had given all my privacy information .For sure this information from my tag sinec i have my perm address.In Day care I had given my recent address .When checked with management ,Kim ,district managerr,she was so rude and i was dicriminated by the management. I dont c any improvement from my daughter,she is 4 now and still i teach ehr in home.I wonder what is the meaning of day care here. I c children crying in the morning standing in the corner and teacher who is supposed to be with them ,just keep talking with the co teacher and having fun on their own world.They take no steps when kids fight each other,still teachers stand and talk.Evening while picking,if u c Amy will stand with big pack of lays chips and infront of her one kid was throwing wood chips on each.Per week 160 $ .is it really worth?.Finally i decided to move out,literrally crying in me .

Pros: Not the best place.Worth spending money on Montessori schools than giving here with lazy staff
Cons: Need to know what they are here for.

My daughter is speaking spanish at 2, and my son is reading at 4. The educational aspect is awesome... HOWEVER it is very much teacher specific. Make sure that you like and bond with your child's teacher and the entire staff gets to know you well.
