Will will launch our Pre-K in fall, 2023, and our elementary school in fall, 2024. We need your help and support to secure our charter launch! You can help us launch successfully by:

  1. Parents–please submit an interest form
  2. Everyone–please fill out a support survey


Dear family and friends,

I am incredibly excited to bring Movement Schools to ATLANTA! ATL has been my second home since attending Spelman College, which was a life-changing experience for me. Since then my entire life has been about building amazing schools for black and brown children. After a decade of doing this in New York and Connecticut (as a teacher, dean, principal, superintendent), it is a dream come true to move back to Atlanta to continue to do this work here.

Movement Schools exist to love and value your child. We want to see your child thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. We are committed to excellence so that our students not just compete locally, but globally. We also want your child to love learning and genuinely enjoy coming to school.

If this sounds good to you, please take a moment to leave your information below. We would love to connect with you.

For our children,

Kerri-Ann T. Thomas (KTT)
CEO, Movement Schools
