Sixteen classroom teachers are responsible for Nambale Magnet School's robust instruction for grade levels Pre-K through 8. The School's staff includes a librarian who sometimes works as a teacher's aide, a secretary, and a nurse who handles all medical needs. NMS has a facilities officer who is responsible for the maintenance of the physical plant, an IT professional who maintains our computers and technology, and a security officer. Also, six cooks and aides plan and prepare nutritious meals for all of the students.
In addition to their academic instruction, the care and well-being of all the children at NMS is a priority. Nine staff members act as caretakers and are responsible for the needs of the residential children during the overnight and weekend periods.
The School's dairy farm employs ten individuals who manage the extensive agricultural system which provides food for the children and sells products to the local community.
Together all of these people contribute to making NMS a thriving place to learn and grow!
