My second grade daughter has been at TNS since kindergarten. I could not be more pleased with her teachers, classmates and the community as a whole. I am confident that she is nurtured, safe and attended to. She is a happy learner who loves to go to school each day.

I have 2 children who attend the TNS and they both love going to school! They learn in a creative, interactive way and make wonderful connections, even at young ages. As an educator in an independent school, I am very happy with the school experience my kids are obtaining.

I am the parent of a fifth grader at TNS. I feel blessed to have found this school for my daughter. She was in a charter school from kindergarten- third grade. During that time their concern was more on test scores instead of the student. At the neighborhood school the student is important. The principal and all of the staff are wonderful. The curriculum is great and the students achieve because they are not stressed. My daughter has excelled at this school. I would recommend this schools to anyone!! What a wonderful surprise the school has turned out to be! My daughter loves it! This school is warm and nurturing. Your child will be given attention as an individual person. It is a very small school with a family feel. The PTA is an active and positive group.

Character is very important and the Neighborhood School is based on the idea of mutual respect, compassion and integrity.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree

The approach to homework is more of a collaborative approach. At least in the 1/2 children get about an hour a week and that is not time for the children to just sit down and do worksheets, but hopefully to sit down with and adult and work together.

There is a very nurturing environment here, that play to children's' strengths, while at the same time focuses on their weaknesses in such a way that it does not alienate any one child. We are having a wonderful experience.

Students are encouraged to resolve any issues that may arise as a community. Teachers give practical tools to aid in conflict resolution.

We felt warmly welcomed last year when our son started in Kindergarten. The community of parents and teachers is strong, there is a commitment to resolving issues together. I appreciate the warmth and consideration of the teachers. They make a great effort to provide narrative progress reports for every child, and work together to develop a curriculum that supports a growing child's mind without pushing the child into testing. I am happy to be involved at the school, and look forward to watching my son learn. The art program is great, as is the library and librarian.
