Since its founding in 1959, The Schenck School is fortunate to have received a remarkable level of support from those committed to the School’s mission. 

Sharing a journey with a very specific group of students who are helped to move beyond and overcome their difficulties in reading and written expression is enriching for all who are a part of the School community. 

The outstanding faculty, superior resources and exceptional campus would not be possible without support.  Today, about 15 percent of the operating budget comes from voluntary support – a combination of funds raised for current operations through the annual fund and special events, and income from gifts that are endowed.

The trustees, administrators, faculty and students recognize and deeply appreciate the many ways that our donors and volunteers contribute to the life of the School.  The magnificent support of our friends ensures The Schenck School will always be an important educational asset to Atlanta and the United States.

I started at The Schenck School in 1st grade, and after the first day, I knew I was in the right place. Once they started explaining how the Orton-Gillingham method worked a light switched on. Next thing I knew, I was in 3rd grade, and 1st and 2nd had flown by. By 3rd grade I could read, write, and spell very well. At last, the thick fog of dyslexia had lifted.


I assumed Schenck would help Jackson learn to read. I did not expect the emotional transformation. It has changed his (and our) lives! I have had more than a few people comment on how his is a ‘new kid’.


On my first day at The Schenck School, my whole attitude about school and myself did a hundred and eighty degree change. My teachers were wonderful. In that first day, Ms. Lynn changed my entire outlook; she gave me my smile back! She helped me realize that I was smart and if I was taught the right way I could learn to read! She told all of us in my class that being dyslexic was just a part of who we were- it was not all what we were. It was like the color of our eyes, we could not change it but that was okay because it did not define who we were or what we could do. There are so many wonderful stories from my time at The Schenck School but none of them are as important as that first day.
