Visiting families have the opportunity to meet our teachers, tour our wonderful facility, as well as speak with current families.

A tour of our school is a vital part of getting to know us. During a tour, families not only have an opportunity to see our wonderful facility and meet our teachers,  but they will also have opportunities to ask questions of and address any areas of concern with our Director. Unless you are a returning family, we strongly recommend you schedule a tour as part of your application process. To schedule a visit please send an email to Admissions.

Families who wish to apply for enrollment at SNS, should complete the application and pay the application fee.   These can be completed online (see above links for forms) or mailed to the school at:
