New Expansion Now Open!

Nearly 21 years ago, the Atlanta English Institute was founded on 5455 Buford Highway by Julie Ressler. Since the school relocated to the DeKalb Technology Parkway location in 2008, the facility has been expanded. We are happy to announce the expansion of this location to accommodate the growth of our student body. The new and expanded space will provide capacity for more students, teachers, and faculty.     Tags: , , , | Categories: General | Student Information | Things To See
