Hello! We are the McGee family. Aria is in 2nd grade, and Larick is in Kindergarten. Aria has been at NTLA since Kindergarten, after trying out a local public school for half the year. She has thrived during her time at NTLA, and is always excited for school. She loves the project based learning curriculum and the after school programs that they offer. Outside of school Aria has a number of activities - horseback riding, Taekwondo, American Heritage Girls, Piano, and Soccer.
Larick transitioned from a Spanish Montessori preschool to NTLA. He loves it and really enjoys learning. He loves math and always wants us to quiz him on math problems. Larick’s outside activities include soccer, Taekwondo, and Trail life. He and Aria have been doing the after school cooking class with Ms. Schroeder. They are learning how to cook and about so many different foods.
Our family moved here from California five years ago for Geremy’s graduate school. It’s kind of ironic that we chose Keller because of the great public school ratings, then we ended up at a private school. We originally wanted to just try out NTLA for the rest of Aria’s kindergarten, because she was getting really lost in the shuffle at the public school. Aria grew so much, not just academically, but socially and emotionally as well. We love the project based learning, service learning projects, individualized curriculum, excursions, small classroom sizes, and the focus on leadership. We also love that NTLA allows our children to be creative and learn about the arts. We are so happy with how our kids are growing at NTLA.
