Our Story

Sitting in the heart of Avondale Estates, Georgia, AES attracts students from a large, diverse attendance zone that extends beyond the city and includes many thriving businesses and community organizations, as well as residential neighborhoods and apartment communities. AES provides students with a global education through its International Baccalaureate (IB) program and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) certification track.
