School Notes:

NTLA was designed to offer all our students the opportunity to learn at an advanced level, enhance their strengths and explore their creativity. Our classes are no larger than 12 students per classroom which allows for individualized curriculum and attention.

Our curriculum encourages creativity and exploration in core subjects and leadership development that help students expand their critical thinking skills. In addition to attending Spanish language instruction daily, students also enjoy music, art and other rotating electives each week. They are given the opportunity to showcase their leadership skills on a daily basis.

At NTLA learning is an on-going adventure and is extended through off-campus instruction. Students participate in several off-campus learning adventures each month designed by NTLA staff that allows them to apply what they are learning in the classroom in a real world environment.

NTLA believes that we can better ourselves through helping others and therefore requires students to complete service projects as a part of the curriculum. Families are encouraged to model the importance of leadership and community service at home.

School Reviews

One visit is all you will need to understand the depth and determination that the entire staff puts forth in crafting an engaging and challenging place of learning. The sense of community begins and extends through the Head of School, Mrs Thompson. We finally found a place that strives to bring out the best in all of their students.

My daughter is in her 2nd year at NTLA and absolutely loves the school. Each and every day she is actively engaged in her learning. The teachers are fantastic--nurturing, highly qualified, insightful, and creative. This school is top notch!

I''m thankful this school is available for my son. The school incorporates Project Based Learning across the curriculum so all learning is relevant and applied. I like this model because my son is collaborating and learning to think critically vs. just memorizing facts for a test. The students showcase their work in some way at the end of each unit and parents are always invited. Parent involvement is encouraged and high. I also like the focus on leadership and service. Class sizes are small, 12 max/teacher, and individualized lessons are created to challenge my son where he''s at each day. That''s a major selling point for me. And he loves going to school.
