  21. 22. What do student say? <ul><li>Despite being an international student, I always felt at home in NPSS. The teachers were so approachable and helpful. I am currently in Carleton University, Ontario and it's also been a splendid experience. I sure do miss NPSS, and I will never forget it. It's more than a school to me. It's home away from home.-Fumbi </li></ul><ul><li>The teachers were always there to encourage and help us when we had problems in class. The school provided a principal for the international students which made it easy for us because we had someone we could talk to when we needed advice.
