“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
We instill the love of discovery and innovation in students, helping them to develop their curiosity, self-esteem, and resiliency. Gifted children have specialized social, emotional, and academic needs. Our program is designed to focus on all three of these areas. Children need a peer group with whom they are able to share the love of discovery and develop healthy self-esteem, and our staff is knowledgeable in working with the specialized needs of gifted children who often require support in this area. Our instructors are able to connect with and provide the motivation to expand the learning desire in gifted children.
Bita Nasri is a Las Vegas business owner, wife, and mother of gifted children. On her journey to find a school for her son, she toured many different schools and was left frustrated with her options. After devoting two years to research and investigation about gifted children and their educational needs, she felt the need to do something.
In her search, Bita discovered the National Association of Gifted Children that provided her the ability to connect with other parents and schools for gifted children. While finding several wonderful programs out of state, moving was not an option. She concluded that Las Vegas desperately needed a school that could provide a full time, appropriate educational environment serving the needs of gifted children. With this realization, Bita’s passion to provide a solution has brought to life the opening of a school in Las Vegas for gifted children.
She is excited to bring this dream to life with the opening of Nasri Academy for Gifted Children in September of 2016. Children in grades K-3 will be able to benefit from her passion to meet their needs. In August of 2017, we will expand to K-5th grade, followed by a final expansion to K-8th grade in August of 2018.
