Elementary Academy

On behalf of more than 1,000 students and 150 staff members, I want to welcome you to the Elementary Academy. As a Drew parent and staff member, I feel honored to serve as the principal of such an awesome place filled with ideas, culture, and conversation. Our diverse school works diligently to embrace a mindset that promotes innovation and continuous improvement.

As a Project-Based Learning (PBL) and Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) school, we offer a variety of unique and engaging learning experiences that enrich the interactions between staff, students, parents, and our surrounding community. Our school community is truly inspiring! Each year, our students continue to demonstrate growth on both state and national assessments. In response to our community’s diligence and hard work, in 2017 Drew’s Elementary Academy became the first charter school and the second elementary school in the state of Georgia to receive STEAM certification. This recognition underscores our focus on STEAM and PBL, our teachers’ innovative instructional delivery practices, and the rigor of our work.

I encourage you to learn more about us by exploring our website or by visiting one of the many school events supported by our community, including quarterly PBL Showcases and DESIGNORAMA, or one of our Fine Arts performances and showcases. Please check the Elementary Academy calendar for dates and other helpful information.

Thank you for your interest in our school. I look forward to meeting you.


Monishae O'Neill,
Elementary Academy Principal
