Welcome to The English Island - a school built by teachers for students. We are different from other schools because of our small, personal classes. Students here at The English Island become close friends and part of our English Island family.

We pride ourselves in fostering a family-like atmosphere. Students have the opportunity to really get to know one another, both in and out of the classroom. Many students make friendships that will last long after their time at the school.

We believe learning English is more than just English classes and that it should be fun. The English Island provides numerous opportunities for students to get out of the classroom and to experience the rich cultural heritage of the Atlanta area.

In addition to our annual July lake party, we offer a variety of off-campus events throughout the year. These events include trips to the Atlanta Dogwood Festival and Greek Festival, visits to the King Center, the Delta Flight Museum, the World of Coca-Cola, and Six Flags Over Georgia.

The Student Services Coordinator English Island organizes recreational and social activities at least once a month. These include cultural events, arts and crafts, movie nights, and trips off campus. Below is our activities calendar.
