As a college faculty member, I've been extremely impressed by the pedagogical approach, training, and preparation of TNS teachers. We meet with our teachers and get personalized narrative reports on our child's progress.
TNS is a very special place. Our 7 year-old is just completing first grade and our 4 year-old will begin pre-k next year. Through its nurturing approach to education, TNS helps shape imaginative, creative children who are curious about the world and empowered and inspired to learn. The school is run by an excellent principal; its combination of project-based learning, respect for play, incorporation of languages, arts, and science, and its overall spirit make it one of NYC's educational gems. I am so happy that our kids go to TNS.
My daughter loves going to school each day. She is excited about science and Spanish and library. Everyday she tells me what she has learned and thatreinforces the idea that I made the right choice in choosing the Neighborhood School.
