Horrible! This is an awful school. Do not go here. Period. No one should send their kid here.

We have had a wonderful experience with NMS. The students in my child's class are lovely as are the teachers. There is a strong sense of community and a wonderful parent network.

I was very dissatisfied with the quality of education & level of staff professionalism. I also felt like there was a bait and switch. I was impressed on the school tour and how they presented attentive teaching strategies and a customized nuturing manner. Once enrolled, I was gravely disappointed ...  Read more

As a current parent, I never even thought of checking this website for what others think of this school until a prospective parent asked me about some negative reviews he saw on this page. At NMS I see on a daily basis that all parents around me both at Elementary and Primary are very happy with the ...  Read more

We are waiting to see what the Lower Elementary teachers will be like, but the ...  Read more

I have seen this school through several eras across my three children, first under Educare (which is now a distant memory), second under the early years of Ellen Kelley, and now again under Joe Ferber. What has remained completely consistent is the outstanding experience of my children (all in Primary). ...  Read more

As a parent, I just wanted to say what a good job the new Head of School has done in his first few weeks, communicating with the community and making some much needed improvements. A great change in the right direction that is much appreciated.

Both of my children have been to NMS (not the old Educare) during the past 5 years and this is definitely our LAST year. The situation has gotten worse each year, high teacher turn over, much younger and inexperienced teachers replacing the ones left (or driven out), poor quality of enrichment programs. ...  Read more
