My son is in 6th grade@nipher. He absolutely loves it!! The teachers are amazing and really work with the students to ensure confidence in their academic as well as social skills. They are great about communicating with the parents as well! I definitely recommend this school if you are looking to relocate or bypass parochial education! You won't be disappointed!!
Nipher is an excellent school. From the teachers to the counselors - they are progressive in their approach to educating middle-schoolers. We have the option of private school (not just parochial) but find Nipher hard to beat in academics & social support. Our son is entering 7th grade at Nipher - he is gifted but with learning disabilities. They understand - helping him with his disabilities but recognizing his strengths as well. Truly a caring group of educators. These are not classrooms where the kids just sit at a desk and are lecture to, then given worksheets. They are interacting, doing different projects, working in groups. It's a great preparation for high school.
We love this school. We relocated from another state where we were very happy with the schools. Although we weren't happy with the elementary school that we ended up with, we are so happy with Nipher. The teachers that we have encountered are nothing less than dynamic. The administration has a wonderful energy & our 7th grader - soon to be 8th grader loves to go to school! He is challenged academically and has learned so much from almost every class that he has taken. Most importantly, he enjoys the process! This family highly recommends Nipher.
