Burgess-Peterson Academy implements the No Place for Hate® program, an Atlanta Public Schools district-wide initiative


Since 2015 APS has implemented the Anti-Defamation League's No Place for Hate® initiative District-wide.

Each year all APS schools, including BPA, participate in programs around the goal of creating a welcoming community committed to stopping all forms of bias and bullying.

Below are the three No Place for Hate® programs provided by Ms. Mellick, and in collaboration with homeroom teachers at Burgess Peterson Academy for the 2022-23 school year. 

No Place for Hate® program 1: "Our BPA Family"  

In December, BPA students took part in the first No Place for Hate® program. All students took part in a lesson on how our classmates and our school community are part of an important extended family. After reading the book, "Our Class is a Family," students reflected on what the BPA Family means to them.

Another key component of No Place for Hate®  is rallying our entire school around the program - making a commitment to make BPA No Place for Hate®.
