The mission of the Education Committee is the following:

  • Inform residents of East Atlanta about the public school options for which they are zoned: Burgess Peterson Academy Elementary school, also known as “BPA”); King Middle School; and Maynard Jackson High School.

  • Provide a channel of communication and engagement between the community and the school system

  • Advocate for the educational needs of East Atlanta families with leadership of both the Atlanta Public School System (APS) as well as the City of Atlanta.

With the transition of APS to a Charter System, please visit the below link to learn more: Charter System and Local School Governance Teams. Not sure what some of those acronyms mean, here are some definitions: Educational Acronyms Definitions.

For more information and questions about all of the school options for East Atlanta children, please contact the Education Committee at or using the form below!
