"Clairmont" is our first campus and occupies the educational wing of CCUCC church at 2676 Clairmont Road in the North Druid Hills neighborhood. Clairmont is filled with natural light from huge floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking our outdoor spaces. The building is surrounded by 12 acres of forest with trails that wind through azaleas, over a bridge, and end at an amazing creek. Clairmont's garden also features a "pizza pie" bed filled with herbs and a tea garden the shape of a half moon.
East Lake Campus
"East Lake," our second campus, resides in the educational building of ELUMC church on the corner of Hosea L. Williams Drive and 5th Avenue, just a few blocks from Oakhurst Village. Classes often go on neighborhood walks to explore our vibrant, in-town neighborhood. East Lake features TSS' largest Atelier (art studio) which has huge, built-in light tables, open spaces for yoga and dance parties, and cozy nooks for small group materials exploration. The campus gardens were designed by a sustainability designer, who took into consideration light and water needs as well as the needs of the school.
"Tucker," our third campus, lives in the Educational Building of LRUMC church at 3142 Lawrenceville Highway in Tucker just north of I-285. It features a massive 5000 square feet of playgrounds for different ages. Surrounding the school are woods and hiking trails, and the campus also features acres of grassy areas for families to congregate before and after school.
Our fourth campus opens for its first day in August 2019. TSS Gwinnett is located in the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Gwinnett at 12 Bethesda Church Road in Lawrenceville just off Ronald Reagan Parkway. It is nestled in a lightly wooded area featuring hiking trails, a labyrinth, and a small creek. We will soon renovate the multi-level playgrounds and build organic gardens for all ages to use.
