The Council of Intown Neighborhoods and Schools, founded in 1978, represents a cluster of seven schools, all located within Atlanta in town neighborhoods. CINS includes the five elementary schools and one middle schools that feed into Grady High School. Each year, CINS awards grants totaling thousands of dollars to teachers in our cluster schools. [To read more about CINS Grants click here.]
CINS mission is to work with Atlanta Public Schools (APS) to foster the development of safe, quality education, in the Grady cluster of schools. To meet this goal, CINS conducts monthly meetings of parents, school administrators, and Board of Education members to explore resources, identify critical issues and seek solutions to problems.
