WELCOME TO NF SCHOOL OF INTEGRATED STUDIES

 

North Fork School of Integrated Studies is an arts infused, holistic, integrated education designed to provide academic excellence through experiential learning. The aim of NFSIS is to balance academic subjects with artistic and practical activities. By freely using arts and activities in service of teaching academics an internal motivation is developed in the students. The teachers strive to model a human being who is wise, artistic and compassionate. They are people who are interested in the world and optimistic about the future. They are dedicated to guarding and cherishing the children under their care and committed to showing the world in beauty and truth.

The school opened within Paonia Elementary School as "a school within a school" in 2015. As of the 2017-2018 school year, the school will offer classes Kindergaten through 6th grade.
