After 3:00 pm, The World is Our Classroom.” With this in mind, we believe that the students should always be given opportunities to learn in ways that are either structured or incidental. NMSD exposes students to a curriculum program known as the Student Development Framework. The students are observed by members of the NMSD staff to identify both their learning strengths and challenges. Based on this observation, our team guides the students to independence in the following 7 age-appropriate domains:
Students will develop skills in self-care, cleanliness, general and personal household management.
Students will develop skills in general and personal household management and goal setting.
Students will learn ways to make productive use of after-school study and leisure time.
Students will learn to establish appropriate interpersonal relationships and awareness/respect of cultures.
Students will develop understanding of the importance of good health, exercise and nutrition.
Students will develop good study skills and will be given opportunities to practice problem solving and critical thinking skills.
Students will develop world knowledge and leadership skills.
