National Presbyterian School

National Presbyterian School is committed to safeguarding the all-important decade of childhood – the years from Age 3 to Sixth Grade. The goal of an NPS education is to form students who are confident, skilled, curious, and compassionate, with a strong sense of identity rooted in the school’s Core Values of love, respect, honesty, responsibility, and safety. As an elementary-only school, we celebrate these fleeting and foundational years, and we are experts in serving the intellectual, spiritual, and ethical formation of children.

We believe that children learn best when they know that they are loved. Therefore we teach not only solid academic skills, but how to apply these skills as the students explore, question, and think about the ever-evolving world they will inherit. By presenting this challenging program in a nurturing school community, we give children the foundations that will enable them to be successful learners and good people.

We invite you to come and visit – we host two Open Houses, one in October and one in December, and also offer regularly schedule small group and individual visits as well as opportunities to attend community events. We would love to meet you!
