This was the best school I have ever gone to. I wish I didn't have to transfer close to the end of 7th grade. Anyways, the staff at Narrows View is extremely nice and will be there for all the students no matter what. This is the best school ever, it makes sure the students are safe. I miss all my teachers and all my classmates. I especially miss all my friends. Narrows View Intermediate School is a great school for your child/children o get more social. The teachers slowly help students who are shy, slowly start to participate in their classroom learning. The things we learn at this school is very helpful in life and is very educational. I hope that more parents decide to enroll their child/children into Narrows View, you won't regret it trust me.
