We have been at NPS for almost 4 years now and feel so incredibly fortunate that our son is part of such a warm, nurturing and loving community. He absolutely adores all his teachers. In addition to the gifted loving homeroom teachers, he has numerous specials teachers (music, drama, PE, spanish, library, etc) who all know and geninely care for him. Why are we at NPS? 1) My son is so very happy there 2) Spanish teacher is amazing and spanish is taught beginiing in kindergarten. 3) The reading and math programs are evidenced based. The school has reading and math specialists overseeing and teaching those programs and the children are broken in to small groups (4-5) children where wonderful learning occurs. 3) Small class sizes. 4) Solid evidenced based curriculum 5) Talented and Gifted faculty and staff 6) Mr Neill, the School Head is absolutely wonderful 7) After school program is unbelievably accomodating and staffed with top notch individuals and programs.. If you have something come up, you just call and your child is taken care of . 8) Parents Association hosts numerous events throughout the year. I could write so much more but out of characters.
We have two daughters at NPS with a combined 15 years of schooling and we could not be more thrilled. With a very deliberate focus on elementary education, the school gives kids a great foundation. It is above all warm and nurturing. All the teachers are first rate and incredibly dedicated and caring. Everyone is approachable and responsive and the sense of community is quite heart-warming. We love that they really live the core values of Love, Honesty, Respect, Safety and Responsibility. Our girls, while very different, have both thrived academically and socially. It has been a second home for our family and we will be sad to move on! If you are considering private schools, we highly recommend NPS. It is indeed a very special place.
