About Our School

Naples Elementary School cherishes its rich culture. Built in 1997, it has undergone numerous facility upgrades and renovations. The school is committed to offering a variety of educational and extracurricular programs to the students. The school's vision statement, " Naples Elementary School: Empowering each student to be an independent, creative problem-solver," is consistently embraced and embedded in our interactions with students and families. Signs and banners are displayed in the hallways, classrooms and other public areas with the intent to keep the stakeholders well informed about the school's vision for the children. Through this close cooperation between the school and community, the 850 students in pre-kindergarten through sixth grade are enveloped in a nurturing and caring environment. They are guided by 107 staff members their academic journey.

Residing on Naples U.S. Naval Support Activity base (NSA Support Site), in close proximity to Naples, Italy, provides our students with many unique opportunities. The base is 118 miles south of Rome, the largest city in Italy. The Support Site offers a complete complement of educational, social, commercial, and recreational venues that are available for use by all military personnel and their dependents. The Naples Elementary School student body is comprised of dependent children whose family members provide support to visiting and home-ported Sixth Fleet Units, Allied Force Command Naples, and shore-based personnel in the Naples and Gaeta Area. The school's enrollment mirrors the national trend where the student population rises and falls with the families' change of duty stations. Our population reflects the diversity of the Base. We find that the students and their families bring to the school a multitude of experiences which enrich the school's atmosphere for learning. Each child's past experiences combine in the classrooms to form a learning environment where all children, ideas, and efforts are welcome.

We take great pride in assimilating these world travel experiences and combining the collective experiences into a unified school community.
