My son was treated like a criminal by the administration for behaving like a typical seven year old boy. We were pushed out of the school with threats and extreme disciplinary measures. There is currently no principal, only a vice principal who is punitive and inexperienced for his position. The teachers were wonderful, but ultimately unable to help my child.

Horrible principle and vice principle. Every other year there's new ones! Current ones are rude so is front office receptionists. Great teachers, and special education teachers are top notch. Would never recommend this school though because children are picked apart. If they aren't doing as well as expected they are made to feel as though they aren't. Have had to yank both children out.

My son attends NVCS and LOVES it there! I feel that some of the reviews below are a little unfair; claiming your children will not receive reasonable treatment. That is something I have NEVER experienced. My child is treated with respect from ALL of the teachers and so am I as a parent. I have seen tremendous growth in my son since beginning school there and feel very fortunate that he attends there. The Spanish teacher, Art teacher and Music teacher are PHENOMENAL! I have seen my child learn more Spanish in 3 months than I have learned in my entire life. As far as the comments on the principal, I have not had much interaction with her so I cannot verify them. However, I can say that the limited interaction I have had with her has been pleasant. Regarding the pick up being the worst one has ever seen; yes, it is a long process. But if you look at the small parking lot and the number of students going there, I believe that they are doing their absolute best to ensure the children are all safe during this time. I also believe they are highly organized with the pick up procedures. I can't say enough how much my child has learned and how excited I am to watch him evolve at NVCS!

My child began kindergarten in August of this year at New Vision. I was nervous in finding out he would be getting a new teacher, but I have been pleasantly surprised by Miss R and all of the staff. The educational experience is top notch and the "specials" are great. PE, Spanish, Art, Music and Technology are all extras my child receives attending New Vision. I recommend this school to anyone seeking a great educational experience for their child/ren and I can't wait for our youngest child to attend in a couple of years. Great job, New Vision staff. Keep up the good work.

I've been going since 1st grade and, although it may have its problems, I have enjoyed going to this school. The classes are catered to the students individual needs. The math program has helped me soooo much!

We have been thrilled with the teachers at NVCS. Our children have received an excellent education: they are performing above grade-level and our GT child has been challenged by the classroom teacher. Their test scores show consistent growth. The teachers at this school care deeply about children and their growth. Our children come home excited about learning and want to go back to school the next day.

If you are looking for teachers that want your children to succeed, administrative leadership, and reasonable treatment of your children, look elswhere. There are many schools that your child can have these things, but this one is not it.

Bad school. Awful principal. After school pickup worst I have ever seen. Chidren are NOT lying about what is happening there. Spare your child.

I have to respond to the review below titled, "They care more about money and appearances than the students." It appears they don't even have the correct school. There is always someone at the front desk (I am there daily), the students don't take the CLEP at NVCS, and the school deals swiftly with bullying and doesn't tolerate it.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 27, 2012

This school is good for the solid average student, but if your child is gifted or has special needs this is not a good school for them. I also did not care for the "better then everyone else" attitude I felt from the office staff and some parents. We chose to leave this school and I couldn't be happier with that decision .
—Submitted by a parent


Posted May 14, 2011

They care more about money and appearances than the students. They drop regular teaching for several weeks in order to "prep" the students for the CLEP to get financial aid associated with the CLEP. If they really cared about teaching our children, they'd be more concerned with actually teaching than they are with how much money they can get. Several teachers should not be teaching but the principal has ignored numerous complaints from parents and staff. Additionally, in several cases of bullying, the school punished the victim by forcing them to switch classrooms and, eventually, leave the school while, basically, rewarding the bully for his/her behavior. Security is severely lacking. Outside doors are often left unlocked or partially ajar, open to anyone. The front desk is not always manned so it's easy to walk right into the school. Even with someone at the front desk they're often so busy that people walk in completely unnoticed. NVCS is not a safe place for your children. They started out with good intentions but have clearly strayed from the path. NVCS falls far short in almost all areas, you're wise to look at the traditional public school system before NVCS.

This school has exceptionally involved teachers who show a care and concern for their students beyond the norm. With recent staff turnover, including new administrators, the school is better than ever!

My child fell an entire grade level behind in math at another public school last year, in large part due to a teacher who felt that first graders should go through math levels at their own pace. We got our child into New Vision Charter School this year, and our child has not only caught up, but surpassed grade level in math. Other subjects are excelled, as well. The teachers at New Vision seem to not only LIKE kids, but are very good at encouraging and helping them. The kids are much more challenged and willing to work hard for a teacher who cares. I also value a school that is run by the parents. We have no power struggle with a self important PTO who wants to relive their school days through their children. Instead, we have a like-minded group of parents who want our children to learn. I LOVE this school. It is what a school should be.

My kids loved most of the teachers- overall, they have some exceptional staff members. Leadership in the school was horrible, but they have new leaders so that is good. They need to get a grip on the bullying and intolerance run amok in the school.

My grandson attended kindergarten at New Vision and he loved it so much that if he had a slight cough or something, the threat was that if he didn't take it easy or take his cough medicine, or whatever; he would not get to go to school. Imediately, he would do whatever he was told. He loves to learn and is reading above his level. They do a great job of encouraging the kids.

Kids and their success is first priority at New Vision. The teachers create amazing learning opportunities to help students in all learning styles. It's a positive learning community, and our kids love it.

Posted June 1, 2009

NVCS is the best school for you if you want your child to learn interesting topics that grab their attention. If you want to drop your child at the door and never think about them again, this charter school is not for you. There are high expectations for parents to be involved in their child's education, to support them in homework, encourage them to succeed and to support teachers in doing their best work. 'More experienced teachers' does not necessarily mean better. These young teachers are hard working, willing to try new things and love their students. Too many parents expect schools to 'accomodate' everything but also don't want to be bothered with following through on school requests for support. Education is a partnership. This school is one to watch in the coming years. So far, so good.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

The different student groups are identified by the Colorado Department of Education. If there are fewer than 16 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
