Atlas International School is a unique, small Pre-k through 8th grade private school located on the border between Raleigh and Cary. With a very low student-teacher ratio ( 1 to 6), every student is an individual. From kindergarten onwards, all students learn to play a musical instrument. From the time they enter preschool, all students learn to communicate in a foreign language.

Atlas was founded by Elizabeth Howdeshell, whose mission was to build a school to meet the needs of the whole child in the modern world. To find out more about Atlas International school, contact Jackie Avallone, the school’s current director.
