Selected by a panel of prestigious judges, the award recognizes the school as an organization that has made significant contributions to Georgia’s civic and cultural vitality through service to the humanities or excellence in the arts.

The Museum School of Avondale Estates, located in Decatur at 923 Forrest Blvd., is a K-8 public charter school in DeKalb County, which currently has more than 500 students.

With the 2017-18 academic enrollment on the horizon, Jan. 30 through Feb. 10, The Museum School is reaching out to potential parents.

Over the next month, the school is offering three open houses where the curricula and requisites are outlined. All will be hosted in the cafeteria of the school on the following nights:

  • Wed., Jan. 11 at 6 p.m.
  • Sat., Jan. 21 at 10 a.m.
  • Tues., Jan. 24 at 9 a.m.

The open houses’ agenda includes a session with Principal Katherine Kelbaugh discussing the school’s model. There will be time for questions. Tours will be led by current parents, and child care services will be provided as needed.

In addition to three open houses, the public lottery for enrollment will be hosted in the Museum School’s cafeteria on Feb. 15, five days following the lottery application deadline on Feb. 10.
