My 5th grader has been in the school for 4 yrs and my 2nd grader just completed his 1st yr. Both are gifted, and came to NBE from a nearby Montessori. The teachers have been kind, loving professionals who are always respectful to their students. The art & music teachers are terrific: come to an end ...  Read more
