Nysmith School for the Gifted
- Private School
- Herndon, VA
- PK, K-8
Alum: Our 3 kids attended Nysmith from pre-K to 8th grade and it was the best decision of our lives! They never wanted to miss a day of school, because Nysmith knows how to make learning fun. Our kids went on to a great high school (TJ), that was perfect for their math/science/technology interests, and attended their #1 college choices. They were not only ready academically after Nysmith, but they were also happy and confident. The teachers, who are experts and passionate about the subjects they teach, treated the kids with kindness and respect, welcomed their questions, nurtured their curiosity, and helped my kids discover their gifts and abilities - sometimes before they even knew what they were. I highly recommend Nysmith. Or, better yet, don't listen to me...look at their website, see how their alums are doing, schedule a tour and a couple of student visit days for your child. See for yourselves what Nysmith is all about!

Works Here: I am a proud after school teacher at Rosa Parks. This is a school community that works together to support students and families in every way possible. Each student is tracked carefully and provided math and reading intervention when needed. Equity and inclusion are a number one priority at Rosa. Gender neutral restrooms, a yearly PRIDE parade, and daily morning school gatherings where we all recite a pledge by Rosa Parks and practice our social/emotional "tool box" make this school an affirmative environment for all. The after school program called Kid's Village offers amazing enrichment classes-from the yoga class with Papa Da to slime making. Kids just don't want to leave at pick up time!
