I absolutely love Narvie. It is a great foundation for my children with the structured discipline, academics, and parental involvement. The have a strong PTA that is taken seriously from the beginning to the end of the year. There is definitely NO SLACKING when it comes to Parent, Teacher involvement. The teachers are on point and serious about their job. They are passionate about each child and not just another test score to be passed.
I am proud to say that my son has attended Narvie since pre-k. He started reading his first year of school. He is currently a second graded. The teachers at Narvie take pride in their work and believe in students ability to learn.
Narvie is a great school, they helped my son to the point where he is now taking the SAT for the Duke Tip program. Check out their website www.narviepta.org. They are focused on helping and ensuring our children succeed in education and in life.
As a parent of NJH for six years, the school is outstanding in academics, leadership, and activities for children. We have three children that attend of love NJH. Narvie is a school of excellence that stresses the importance of parental involvement and challenges our children academically. The afterschool program is a blessing to working parents. I love how the faculty and staff treat every child as an individual. Parents have stressed their concern about children that have special needs. I'm told that programs such as Special Education and fitness for kids are in the planning stages or are being discussed to assist families that require additional help for their children. I feel comfortable knowing that when our children go to NJH they are safe. My prayer is that DeKalb build more middle schools in our community that meets or exceed the same expectations as NJH. BES
Narvie J. Harris has been more then I could have hoped for. My son is in kindergarten and has enjoyed every day of school. The teachers and staff are all wonderful and active in each students development. The one thing I would suggest to anyone considering sending their child to Narvie, is to truly understand that the staff and teachers expect a lot from the students and the parents. Parents are expected to fully particapate in their childs/childens education. The curriculum is a little more demanding than most elementary schools but the results are outstanding. Narvie offers music, computer, art, physcial education, and spanish classes. I can only hope that by the time my son finishes fifth grade, they will open another school for him to continue his education within Narvie's system.
Narvie is an excellent dchool that stresses disclipline that is necessary for the children to develop and learn. I would recommend that the selection process used for the enrollment be reviewed as it pertains to siblings. It would be great if my daughter could have had the same opportunities as my son by starting pre-k at Narvie J Harris, but unfortunately she was on the alternate list and not able to attend. I would love for recess to be considered in Dekalb county school system. Extra activities are offered in after scholl care which is simply awesome. Teresa Stallings
As a parent of a child with ADHD, I would not recomend this school. Although there are some good teachers there, they do not address the needs of these special children in a positive way. My son will be entering the 1st grade at Narvie but we are looking into schools that are geared toward every child not just those that need no special instructions
