Several years ago we transferred our 3rd grader to Nazareth from a prestigious independent school. Our initial reaction was: BEAUTIFUL, peaceful, SAFE campus, strong curriculum that actually includes art, Spanish and P.E., highly competent teachers and excellent leadership. Our Principal, Dr. Mauricio, is extremely receptive/responsive to parental input. She obviously cares deeply about the students and is, at the same time, able to run a "tight ship". Nazareth is more than a school, it's a community. From our perspective, the following are some of Nazareth's strengths: middle school improvements with emphasis on literature/writing, exceptional, high school prep science curriculum, tech program with new computer lab, art, foreign language, choir and P.E., on-site extracurricular activities including student council and a variety of sports, wonderful after-school options including low cost/ well-run day care and study hall (led by our terrific librarian who knows every child, his/her reading level and interests), morning assemblies to promote communication/sense of community, and an effective/talented PTG board. We have never regretted our decision to transfer to Nazareth.
