- Why Nysmith
Beginning in kindergarten, students change classes with each subject, so they are taught by teachers who are dedicated to a single subject area and are absolutely passionate about it.
Because our teachers are passionate about their specific subject areas, they delight in constantly looking for new and creative ways to introduce your child to new content and explore it more deeply. Our program is always evolving. The net result is an environment where your child will not only learn more but will also have fun in the process.
Our teachers love being at The Nysmith School and engaging with such eager, motivated, and happy students. This is reflected in our low teacher turnover rate and long average tenure. More than half of our teachers have been at The Nysmith School for over 10 years!
However, the best way to understand the Nysmith teacher magic is to see them in action. Visit us and watch them interact in the classroom with students who are the age of your own children. Listen to their questions and observe the respect that they give to each child. Observe the ways in which they handle the inevitable challenges of a dynamic instructional environment.
Then feel free to schedule a one-on-one with the teachers to discuss your thoughts, concerns, and insights. They will be delighted to discuss with you their passion for teaching and the ways they would help your children thrive.
