    I've been going to NSA since diapers. Currently, I am in the ninth grade, and I have already received access to so many opportunities. Along with education, NSA focuses on making everyone from everywhere feel welcome in our community. Sure, we have had our rough spots, but hasn't everyone? When I have trouble or drama, NSA is my safe haven to be myself. My teachers' goal is to help students achieve theirs. Honestly, so many of my teachers at NSA have helped shape my bright future. I am always eager to learn, and I always feel welcome in their classes. Along with this, I have always found NSA to be so creative and clever. There are so many fun social activities, especially the pep rallies and football games! Overall, NSA has taught me skills that will last me a lifetime. From making friends, to prioritizing education, NSA will always be my home. I wouldn't have anything else for the world.

    NSA has established a caring and supporting environment for my young children. The classroom teachers and assistants truly know them and go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that each one is encouraged in a way that best suits their individual learning styles and personalities. My children love coming to school every day, and I'm excited about the opportunities offered as they head into Middle and Upper Schools!
    Great academic at this school. Administration, teachers, counselor do an outstanding job in communicating with the parents to inform you about your child's progress. The role they play in the community by helping others is second to none. Sports programs are great in teaching the students about team work and doing it with great success. Academic, community, sports and building a future, is what NSA is all about.
