Welcome to the Neighborhood School!

The Neighborhood School believes children thrive best when we build on their strengths and provide them with a safe and nurturing environment.  We have rooted our practices and policies in anti-bias and anti-racist work that involves the entire school community.  Our interdisciplinary, inquiry-based curriculum encompasses children’s interests and is responsive to each child’s individual needs.  We collaborate with families in order to foster a community that is supportive of the whole child.  School-wide policies and practices are formed collaboratively and dynamically to provide a cohesive and thoughtful environment for our community.

  • Dyanthe’s Weekly Letter

    Dear Families,

    Today is Giving Tuesday. Please contribute to the TNS PTA if you are able and have not yet done so this year.  Since we are not a Title 1 school, we rely heavily on financial support from the PTA. Without it, our kids would not have art every week, dance, or teaching assistants in every early childhood classroom.  The PTA also augments the costs of many wonderful field trips we take so that every child can participate.  The PTA pays for many of the materials and supplies that enable our kids to have the hands-on learning experiences essential to learning.  Your partnership is invaluable.  Your donation is also tax-deductible.  Thank you.

    We have a new website after years of being “under construction.”  It still needs a lot of work, but now current and prospective families can easily access information about our wonderful school community!  

    Please remember that Friday is a half-day.  Dismissal is at 11:45 a.m.

    All families must submit one Emergency Contact Form per child each year.  We only have 101  responses!  Please take a few minutes to complete this. Thank you!



About Us

We believe children learn by making sense of their world and experiences. We have seen that they learn best through first-hand experiences with people, materials, and places. This is why trips are an important part of the curriculum, along with the use of concrete materials, dramatizations, and simulations as ways for children to recreate the themes and concepts they are studying.
