    "NSAA has progressed an amazing amount in three years. Test scores have soared, my daughter's progress in her learning is amazing and she will be headed for college after her senior year. The Dean and all the staff have my complete admiration. There seems to be little in the way of discipline issues and students I have talked to feel safe in the school. The Humanities teacher, has challenged my daughter into thinking outside the box. The art teachers are amazing and specifically Mr Dickson's talent for teaching art and life drawing to recalcitrant students has my admiration. My daughter has found a new appreciation for math under her algebra 3-4 teacher. Completely over qualified to teach science, the teacher has sparked her enthusiasm for the sciences and he is so happy and loves what he teaches. (my daughters words) The French teacher is off the scale in her ability to teach a subject near and dear to my daughter's heart. If you have any doubts about the academic areas of this school, as it is an art school, put them aside. I am impressed with the quality of the teaching and wish I could have attended this school as a teen."

    "As a parents, my daughter has thrived at the school, and feels safe and supported. Since 6th grade she has grown and takes her schooling seriously. The faculty and admin are great and communicate with families frequently."

    "I was disappointed when my year ended with a staff overhaul, but I feel the school still provides the same safe environment to grow as an individual that it offered me in my years attended. Like any school, there will be pros and cons, but i have to say: If your child is having a rough time in their current school, or just needs a fresh start, consider the possibility of attending NSAA. This school allowed me to come out of my shell and explore different skills and talents that I didn't even know I could do. In Public school I had difficulty making friends, I found myself isolating, and I didnt participate in extracurricular activities. I'm not saying this school is a magic solution to your antisocial problems, but the environment allows you the opportunity, and pushes you, to be in the spotlight. The smaller class sizes makes it a lot harder to go unnoticed. I appreciate what this school did for me, and I am grateful for the opportunity to attend, graduate, and make lifelong friends."

    "THE GOOD : The school offers great opportunity and connections in the form of art teachers who, generally, do wish the best for their students and a mostly accepting student body. There are also some very rigorous academic classes, although offered sporadically. THE BAD : The school has very, very poor administration. The Executive Dean blatantly disciplines intermittently and inconsistently due to favoritism and has unprofessional relationships with students. It is unclear how funding is allocated as some departments are consistently poor. The teachers seem to be hired with little background information and teachers who stand up for the students don't last very long. OVERALL : under different administration, the school would be a thousand times better."

    "Staff work hard, they care about the families and go beyond expectations to help all students. Students are treated as individuals and each has a need and gets what they need to be strong, and successful."
