They teach the WHOLE child...so rare these days.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree

As a child who was bullied in younger grades the teachers rarely said stop it and when they did they did not enforce it.


Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
Some of the kids I was with in my class needed a little bit of help, and the teachers recognized this but rarely helped them.

Develops character: Neutral


- a
School does promote good values but does not enforce it.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
Most teachers in this school are very bad teachers, some of the lower school teachers are obviously just hired because they are cheaper. Upper school teachers, some of them are good, some bad.


Amount of homework: Neutral


- a
As an alumni I can say that the school has a low amount of homework but the homework is very inconclusive and does not teach much.



- a
The teachers are a little bit unforgiving but has good education



- a
We recently relocated from out of state & had heard rave reviews about NFS from several parents. So far, our experience has been OK. There are definitely some children in my kids class that are constantly disruptive & badly behaved & quite frankly I don't understand why they are being tolerated. I had high expectations going in, and I've been somewhat disappointed so far. The school needs to do a better job dealing with issues such as bullying. I'm hoping the academics will be much better, based on what we have heard from other parents.


Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
Need to find a better approach in dealing with disruptive children. They spoil it for the the other kids.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Homework format is flexible to allow for family schedules & after school activities.
