    "Our child is in the Regional Gifted Center at NTA. We were reluctant to accept the spot given the school's test scores and somewhat unknown reputation. As we near the end of the school year, we are happy with the NTA Community and plan to send our younger kids to the neighborhood program. Highlights: - Strong core group of active parents in the Parent Advisory Committee. The PAC is proactive and meets regularly. - Positive, responsive leadership. Teachers seem to like the Principal and VP. - Dedicated, hard-working teachers & good student:teacher ratio - Orderly and disciplined environment, but very welcoming - On the cutting edge of technology learning - Beautiful facilities - Good separation of older/younger kids - Extras for all kids: swimming, art, music, PE, Technology, and Spanish - Organized, meaningful field trips (Children's Museum, Cultural Center, a play, etc) - Parents welcome in the classroom - Not overcrowded It is a very solid school with great potential in both the RGC and neighborhood programs. Take a tour."

    "My child is in the gifted program, Kindergarten. We could not be happier with her teacher and the staff at this school. Caring staff, Principal who listens, holds himself accountable and wants to build the school to something great. Homework is appropriate for age, the kids are challenged and have fun. Nice parents at the school, parent participation could be increased and I hope it does increase. Clean environment, children's work displayed so that they can be proud of what they're doing. Differentiation for kids in classrooms!"

    "My child is in the gifted program, 1st grade, and so far so good! The curriculum is challenging and I like my child teacher. I also love the principal because he is approachable. Plenty of activities, and a swimming pool for the kids to use. I can say without questions, that my daughter will be here until graduation fron the 8th grade."

    "It is a great school my daughter started going their in kindergarden when they first opened up and she graduated class of 2011. I still have 2 sons attending, they are in 6th and 2nd grade and I plan on also letting them graduate from here. They have so much to offer, they have good teachers and they also have a pool and a variety of activities for the students."

    "I love NTA! I transferred my child there 2 years ago and it was the best decision i could have ever made. I find the principal and staff to be so involved and caring. You know that the concern is real and not just their job. I want to send a special thanks to Mrs. Brooks my child's teacher. She is the greatest."
