Who We Are


What sets NPES apart is our strong sense of community.  Here, involved parents work closely with dedicated teachers to nurture each child's full potential. Because we're a small school, your child has more opportunities to shine.  Small classes allow teachers to really get to know your child, tailoring instruction to how your student learns best.  Whether they're learning physics by dropping eggs down a 2nd floor stairwell...or re-enacting immigrants arriving at Ellis Island, our students are inspired to learn.  Your child will be, too.
