Learning is in Our Nature
In 2008, residents of Chattahoochee Hills had a dream to create educational opportunities for all children that would reflect the community’s values of sustainable agriculture, environmental awareness, and art appreciation.
Through their hard work, determination, and collaboration with partners and funders, their dream was realized in 2012 when the Fulton County School Board approved the Chattahoochee Hills Charter School (CHCS).
When selecting a barn quilt for their campus, CHCS looked for a pattern that would honor their school mascot, Hootie the Owl. They customized a pattern called "Owl's Well that Ends Well," and named it "Hooting for Hootie."
Our mission is to inspire all of our children to the highest levels of academic achievement through a rigorous curriculum that integrates the wonders of the natural world.
Our goal is for our students to cultivate the capacity to achieve a meaningful, healthy, flourishing life that embodies responsibility, stewardship and experimental engagement with the arts, agriculture and environment in informed, imaginative and rigorous ways.
