Welcome to Kingfisher Academy!
Kingfisher Academy, a non-profit Human Scale Education School, serves the Central DeKalb/West Gwinnett area by providing a place-based, project-oriented curriculum, targeting gifted students from 4 to 12.
We believe in teaching Peace and Justice; in using an Environmental lens to view all subject matter; that a child must develop an Authentic, Autonomous self to be a gifted learner; that our Community both inside and outside the school provides a rich learning environment; and that Kingfisher must be Educationally vigorous to allow for the depth of learning that bright kids require to do their best.
Our diverse student body is made up of children from Eastern Europe, from Guatemala, from Sweden, and from all over the U.S. Our children are black and white and Hispanic and Mediterranean. We are Christians, Jews, Buddhists, and Muslims. Our diversity is part of our strength and makes every day at Kingfisher interesting.

Hydrology–Word of the Week
Hydrology is the study of the properties of water; especially of its movement in relation to land. My neighbor is learning about hydrology as he mops up all the water that flowed into his basement after a 3 inch rainfall in mid-July. We studied hydrology while damming up a creek last spring.
