Having a child at North Fork School of Integrated Studies, I feel messages of community and connection to be woven throughout our everyday lives with the school. The school is small and, with most families knowing each other and living nearby, we have learned that connection makes us more resilient and, generally, happier. This feeling expands to our children feeling a sense of community and belonging where they live. We have a community rhythm to our lives that supports deep emotional, spiritual and mental growth for our children. I am grateful every day that my daughter gets to attend NFSIS.
