School Official Point of View

I have a special "great job" for preschool teachers at New Vistas Center for Education. While all of the teachers are incredibly caring, organized and experienced, the preschool teachers are the ones who lay the foundation for each child's future success.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
These are top notch teachers who are able to work with gifted children, as well as children of all abilities. Our daughter has some emotional needs that would require an IEP at a public school. The principal, office staff and her classroom teachers not only support her but encourage her to the best of her abilities, often spending time above and beyond to make sure she's comfortable and anxiety-free. They have an open-door policy and welcome parents to make an appointment or just to stop by to talk. When I see my daughter running up to hug the principal and the reading coordinator, a big smile on her face, and listen to them talk to her for ten minutes, and see how proud and happy she is later...my heart swells and I know how lucky we are to have found this school.

Amount of homework: Agree

There is a lot of homework, but it's manageable if you get on top of it immediately and work out a schedule. In addition, the teachers will work with your family individually to lessen the homework load if necessary.

My daughter has been at New Vistas since pre-school, and our whole family loves it. The principal knows each child individually and the teachers work to make sure each student is working to the best of his or her abilities. My daughter is doing 4th grade math (she's in 3rd grade) and reads at a 7/8th grade level, so she receives appropriate assignments. Other children in her class are in 5/6th grade math and varying reading groups. They tailor to each student, and there are no "90 perfect club" style stressful comparisons. Each kid here knows they are smart and special, and they're proud and supportive of each other. They're all advanced, and nobody is a jerk about their own individual placement. You won't realize how big a deal this is until you go elsewhere and get the throat-cutting kind of competition without the support. Parents are encouraged to be part of the school and the learning process. We walk our children to class, greet the teacher and have a quick chat/passdown if necessary. Teachers give us their emails & phone #'s to stay in contact about our children. It's easy to ask for help or to say thanks. Parents don't inundate the teachers with chatter; we communicate about the important stuff. This doesn't make the kids into coddled babies; rather, it lends them confidence that their teachers and parents are on the same team, and that they can bring up issues and get them resolved by people who care. The office staff, including the principal, walk around and greet kids, giving them good morning hugs and congratulating them on the recent accomplishments. The teacher who runs the reading program is AMAZING -- she works with the reading teachers to make sure every single child is matched with the reader teacher and progress that works for them. This is part of the reason why kids at this school read at such advanced levels. Any child can do it, as long as they receive the appropriate support. I love the diversity at the school. There are children from many different cultures and countries of origin. The diversity makes for a very open, friendly and beautiful environment. I highly recommend this school! We love it.

My two daughters attended New Vistas Center for Education beginning at 4 years of age. The teachers were wonderful, the curriculum was individualized for each student and it gave both of them a great start in their education before they entered middle and high school, where they graduated with honors. Today my two grandchildren are in Pre-K and Kindergarten. They are both reading, writing stories in complete sentences, putting words in alphabetical order and borrowing and carrying in math! New Vista’s students move at their own pace so if your child is accelerated in one subject but needs a little extra help in another subject New Vistas makes sure each student’s needs are met. The Administrative staff and teachers have an open door policy to always listen to your questions and concerns. They care about your child and their individual needs. I would highly recommend you place your child in this fantastic school and let them get the head start they need to be an outstanding student.

I feel it is just right and that children should do something related to learning each and every day of their lives!
