Atlanta Pride School aims to unite students from various backgrounds in an attempt to combat bullying, but has drawn mixed reaction from residents.

Christian Zsilavetz, co-founder of Pride School Atlanta and transgender male, feels as though LGBT identifying and gender nonconforming kids should be in a school environment where students are able to “be, learn, and grow.” Pride School Atlanta is a K-12, private school geared toward students and educators who want a safe and encouraging education academically and socially. This sounds like heaven for any student no matter how they sexually identify, but in the court of public opinion the school has received national coverage and criticism.
