The opportunity to place our kids in a Waldorf Inspired Public School is one of the main reasons we moved to Paonia. NFSIS has far surpassed our hopes and dreams for our children's education! The teachers and staff are caring and thoughtful. The campus is centrally located and suits our children's educational needs. Among other things, our family greatly values and appreciates the attention given to outdoor education. Little did we know, the entire town would reflect the brilliance and connection we feel with the school community. The relationships we've cultivated with other families no doubt will last a lifetime! We LOVE NFSIS!!!
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.~ Amber T.
