School Notes

  • NPES is a school dedicated to raising confident, self-reliant individuals, in partnership with families, while instilling a sense of caring, curiosity, and a passion for learning. Our mission isn`t just about providing our students with a great education, it is also about raising children in a partnership with families. As an extended family for our students, we take the responsibility of helping them develop the essential skills they need in life very seriously. At NPES, we have put together a team of incredible faculty and staff. We have created a warm and welcoming environment where children are engaged in their own learning-a space that`s intentionally designed to inspire and to instill a lifelong passion for learning. And, we`ve built a rich curriculum to prepare them for whatever future they choose. Our school family is a community in the fullest sense of the word. Every child is known, nurtured and treated with respect. Every family is appreciated and involved. And everyone is invested in the mission. Our kids are passionate about helping others and demonstrate this passion through our developing service learning program. They are curious learners and independent thinkers who are confident in their abilities.
