Nysmith School for the Gifted believes that a world class education is a joy-filled experience. Every day it is our mission to make this happen for our students. 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 paddling a canoe through the halls, first graders on a bird migration, 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 testing for their CPR/First Aid certificates, 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 bands, two choral groups, Book Fairs, Bingo Night, field trips, and lots of student-centered learning designed by passionate, 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 middle schoolers. Does this sound too good to be true? Please come and see for yourself!
