The NMIS curriculum includes Suzuki Violin, Spanish immersion, and Aikido. Unfortunately, we found the school's execution to be problematic. NMIS experiences high teacher turnover. Time for free play is so limited that our child never learned classmates' names. The children's need for play was so great that many did not eat lunch, getting through the day on granola bars the teacher doled out. Drills and reward and punishment are a regular part of the teaching toolkit. The student culture includes name-calling, aggressive chasing, and belittling. Kinders are subjected to standardized testing. We expected excellent pedagogy and school leadership to go along with the stellar curriculum. Did not find it here.

My kids love this school and so do we as parents! It feels like a private school without the huge expense. Staff and director are wonderful!

We have been going to this school for two years, and the school has some growing pains being new. Being a full immersion school has been a change for our child, however is thriving at it now. The first year was the best with our kids teacher from Spain. After two years, he is speaking, writing, and reading in Spanish and English. He is writing in cursive and enjoying the school. Our only complain is the growing problems. They will be moving into a new building this year and not on the west side of town where they were originally going to be. They are providing a high level of education along with music, and physical educaitons (Fencing, LaCrose, Akido). I wish this school would go to through middle school, and they are still working on IB for PYP. Principal interacts wells with the kids.
