The numbers tell a big part of The Nysmith School success story: 35+ years of a three-generational family owned and operated school educating academically gifted children, a remarkable 1:9 teacher-student ratio, an accelerated academic program that allows students to study up to four grade levels ahead and a student body representing 55 countries. Creating a challenging yet nurturing environment in which children from pre-kindergarten to eighth grade love to learn is equally responsible for Nysmith earning recognition as a “Top 10 School in the World,” by The Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth in 2015. The school’s reputation has led many families to make the life-altering decision to relocate—from around the United States and overseas—solely to enroll their children at Nysmith.
