New Vistas has been a blessing for our daughter. She was having great difficulty at her old school. Everyday was a big fight about having to go. Now she looks forward to being at school with her friends and teachers. She is getting good grades and is very involved with activities. I couldn't be happier!

My child is starting his 4th year at New Vistas. I love this school. They teach the Slingerland method, a multi sensory way of teaching. My son no longer feels overwhelmed and is excelling in his academic progress. The teachers care very much about their students and take time to teach my child they way he learns best.

I'm a student at NVCS and I love it. The teachers are my friends and teachers. They teach me things my way. I'm glad my mom found New Vistas.

My daughter attended New Vistas for two years. The first year was fine, she had a great teacher. The second year was awful. New Vistas could care less about your childs education.

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.
