  • Congratulations to our 2019 STAR Student and Teacher!

    Every year, the Professional Association of Georgia Educators Foundation, known as the PAGE Foundation, identifies top students at public and private high schools across Georgia. Their Student Teacher Achievement Recognition program, or STAR student and teacher honors, identifies high school seniors who post the highest SAT scores for their schools and rank among the top 10 percent or top 10 students in their class in grade-point average. Each STAR student then chooses her or his STAR teacher. Once school winners are selected, regional STAR students and teachers are chosen to compete for the state title. Pablo Patel has been named Atlanta International School's 2019 Professional Association of Georgia Educators STAR Student. Pablo has chosen his IB Biology High-Level teacher, Ms. Ecaterina Lungu, as his STAR teacher. Many congratulations to them both!
