The Nysmith School for the Gifted is a community of students and staff who find learning a real joy. Visitors to our school feel the energy from the first minutes they are in the building. Students are deeply engaged in an incredible variety of activities each and every day. On an “ordinary” day, you might see preschoolers on parade in their astronaut rocket boosters, kindergarteners modeling 1st graders in their French Taihiti party, Famous American second graders in full dress, third graders playing Greek games, fourth graders working with their robots in computer class, fifth graders dissecting fetal pigs, sixth graders behind tables in the trenches of World War I, seventh graders building the Berlin Wall, and eighth graders putting Victor Frankenstein on trial. Does this sound unusual? Then please come and see for yourself!
Along the way, we fit in grammar, math and reading skills, formal and creative writing, computer programming, science labs, student- created newspapers and yearbooks, clubs, dramatic productions, three band, two choral groups, Book Fairs, Bingo Night, field trips, a Renaissance Festival, and lots and lots of student-centered learning designed by passionate, inspired and inspiring teachers. It is fun!!! In fact, parents tell us over and over that their children refuse to go on vacation or miss school for anything…really….parents of young students and parents of middle schoolers. Does this sound unusual? Please come and see for yourself!
