Children from pre-K to eighth grade enjoy NFS’s after-school club program, offering enrichment and fun after the regular school day ends. Clubs are held each day of the week during all three terms and cover a variety of topics, including the academic, artistic, and purely recreational. About half of NFS students take part in the program, and many opt for multiple clubs.

NFS’s interscholastic sports teams attract a large number of energetic student-athletes, many of whom play all three seasons. Teams are open to upper schoolers, with a few teams available to fifth graders. Participation, camaraderie, skill development, sportsmanship, and having fun are all stressed, and games—especially big games—often draw enthusiastic crowds of parents and fellow students.
