They have a great elementary and middle school program apart from preschool. One of the best after school programs I know of. I lived in several different states around the country.

This is our daughter's first year at The New School. She is in the Pre-K class. She LOVES going to school. There is a lot of emphasis on art, music, physical education. I do wish there was a bit more emphasis on academics, although I am assuming that starts more in Kindergarten.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
