  • My son has attended NBES since Kindergarten and he has done exceedingly well. The faculty and staff are remarkable. He has progressively received instruction based on his grade level and ability to insure that he is getting the best education possible. I have had the opportunity to move him from NBES andrefused because I feel so strongly about the excellent job the staff of NBES is doing. Keep up the good work.
