Peace Academy Ribbon Cutting

Peace Academy is ready for the 2023 school year!

Charter schools leveraging the experience and knowledge of leading educators, have the best current methodology in education. The new PEACE academy charter school is the only charter-approved public school in the entire state of Georgia with an Afrocentric and culturally inclusive curriculum.  GVSA, in association with Carroll Daniel was charged with bringing their vision of an inclusive and diverse community exposed to new critical thinking experiences to built life.  The first step in that vision is through environmental impact.

Finding its home in a shopping center along a prominent throughway in Decatur, the school’s location places it firmly in the community.  To bring that same experience of “community” into the learning space, there are two “forum” spaces which encourage and foster community and social learning critical in today’s digital life culture.  Other impactful spaces within the school are large classrooms with integrated technological teaching tools for flexible teaching styles.

Currently educating kindergarten through third grade, the interior is accented with bright colors on walls and floors, and bright lighting.  Enhancing the safety of the students, there are no exterior windows except in the lobby to bring in natural light.  Each classroom has viewing windows facing the well-lit corridors and forum spaces. As the educational grades grow to include all middle school aged students, the interior environment will grow and change.  #gvsa #goodevanslyke #goodevanslykearchitecture #carrolldaniels #peaceacademy #charterschools
