From The Principal: Isaac Castelaz
National Teachers Academy is a dynamic community of 21st century scholars striving to become lifelong learners. NTA's mission is to ensure that every child enters high school on the pathway to college. The NTA Way – Respect for Self, Others, the Environment, and Teaching & Learning – is the roadmap to get there. With this at the core of all NTA does, the school's highly dedicated staff continuously strives to challenge students at increasingly ambitious levels through cutting edge technology and by creating opportunities for higher-order thinking, reasoning and critical thinking. Just as surely, NTA students work hard, push themselves to do even better, and develop the grit to achieve great things under any circumstance.
