NSMS has been a wonderful experience for our children. The teachers care deeply for the children's education and it shows every day. Child's experience cultures, languages, art, science along with the daily academics. The school has given our children a love of learning that will last with them for their lifetime. The school is located on a quiet block and offers outdoor play space and open areas to run. The extracurricular activities include piano, Spanish, soccer, and much more.
