Nsoroma is a dynanic institution of learning! My son is born after the birthday cutoff for public school pre-kindergarten programs. However, I didn''t want to hinder his academic promise. I wanted him to be exposed to a healthy & happy school environment that would provide the basis for his view of education. I hit the jackpot with Nsoroma Academy! The teachers are EXCELLENT! They are accessible and truly care about the well being of each child. The curriculum is challenging and stimulating. They make time to meet each student''s needs. My son has been exposed to several languages & cultural activities. I have seen his writing, math, & confidence improve tremendously! Values and manners are also reinforced throughout the school day. I''m truly thankful my son has the opportunity to attend Nsoroma Academy.

I am so happy that I found this school for my daughter. With her first year of school being so important I was very worried about sending her to a school where the atmosphere would be more harmful than helpful. At Nsoroma she is exposed to many activities to make her well rounded and I have noticed a huge change in her habits at home. She asks permission to perform tasks and demonstrates great behavior on a daily basis since she has been attending this school. She always comes home with new information and I can only see more good things to come. Wonderful school.

Our son is a student at Nsoroma and we love the progress he has made there. We often find him to be more academically advance than other children his age who attend public school. It is a very nurturing and affirming environment for our child and we feel strongly that it will be a great base for his academic students going forward.

When we discovered Nsoroma, our family felt like we won the lottery. We have a in both the Early Learning program and the Pre-K program. Both our children thrive in the mixed-age classes, getting the educational and social benefit of being both helpers and learners among their peers. Our older son has a speech delay and the teachers have been supportive and flexible with us in developing an action plan in concert with his speech therapist, and are excellent at encouraging his strengths and supporting his growth in the areas where he needs more work. The materials and methods used encourage a wide variety of learning styles. Culturally, with the no-shoes policy and family-like atmosphere, our children feel right at home. It''s a great fit for our family!

Nsoroma is a breath of fresh air. This school is truly a holistic approach to education. This is my son''s second year in the program and I am so impressed with the skills that he has gained and all that he has learned. He is always excited to talk about what he is learning in Pre-K from living things to ancestors. The hands-on approach is perfect for his learning style. I love the daily routines that the staff instills, such as washing hands when they enter the school, removing shoes, and meditation. The curriculum is culturally rich and academically sound. I am so grateful for Nsoroma, and I highly recommend it!

I love Nsoroma because they really nurtured my son and were able to captivate, mold and encourage my sons'' academic success. My son was exposed to many extracurricular activities there that he wouldn''t be at public schools. Due to the small class sizes, his teachers were able to work one on one with him and develop his independent needs. The staff is always readily available to discuss any concerns and/or ideas. I love Nsoroma for loving my son and nurturing his social and academic success.
