I love NTA! I transferred my child there 2 years ago and it was the best decision i could have ever made. I find the principal and staff to be so involved and caring. You know that the concern is real and not just their job. I want to send a special thanks to Mrs. Brooks my child's teacher. She is the ...  Read more

This is a very rough school. If your children attend, you will not get much support and you will have to worry about their safety every day. Children are so disruptive in classrooms, it is very hard for the teachers to teach them.
