Welcome to Neil Armstrong School where students, families and staff work together to "Reach for the Stars!"
Neil Armstrong is an inclusive, friendly and close knit neighborhood school. We embrace our rich traditions at the same time that we embrace the student centered, technology rich instruction that prepares students for life in our 21stCentury. Our community is strong. We are proud of our diversity. Our Spartan Way and our joint commitment to our children knit us closely together. We invite you to join us in our efforts to create a joyful place for children to learn about their community, their world and the world yet to come.
