The school year has just begun and I am very pleased with the progress my 7th grader is making! I was concerned about the switch from primary school to middle but it has been a pleasant transition thus far. I really appreciate the open door feel I get from all levels of educators at NMS.

Comunication with parents is poor.The school is under staffed and over populated with students. The wasl is a huge problem. Teachers are not teaching they are teaching to the test. I do not feel my child is getting an adequit education.
