This is a very small school with a severe lack of options when it comes to classes and other educational options. There is a brand new public school not even a mile from this tiny place that only educates approximately 300 students a year. I don't understand why this little school is there especially when public funding in education is so tight. What really infuriates me is the school "grade" that it claims to have. This is a school that is publicly funded yet they can turn away any student that applies who doesn't have a high GPA or may be struggling with emotional or behavioral issues. So, in other words, a loophole found in our "choice of school" option is being exploited so these school directors can legally discriminate which students are "good enough" to get in and use these high ratings to campaign for students. Why are we wasting $$$ funding this snob school when the real school is literally a hop, skip and jump across the street?

New Dimensions HS is a public school with a private school atmosphere. Students, including mine, are held accountable of academic and social behaviors, and there is zero tolerance for bad behavior, regardless of race or social standing (some parents find this difficult). New Dimensions HS is a college prep school; over 95% go on to higher education. Both of my children have been fully readied for college (1 has graduate college already). There is simply no better school (public or private) in central Florida. The school has a embedded culture of excellence. The administration is great, as are the teachers.

I would recommend this school for your child/children. I have a student in this school and she has been doing well so far. Teachers are available if child needs help with understanding a topic.

Its only my first year at this school,but i already love it! The classes and the teachers are cool and with only 2 core classes a semester, there is a lot less stress. I've made friends easily,and even with some seniors so its been great.

All three of my children have or are currently attending New Dimensions. It is strict but fair and puts the kids first. The education is first rate. I highly recommend it.

It may be an A school, but teachers and those whom run the school are racist and don't know how to handle issues between students and teachers (poor judgment) They don't know how to handle issues with parents whom search explanation and fairness. On top of that, when they can't deal with the parent, their best solution is to withdraw the student. Way to go New Dimension High School. These people should learn some challenge.

New Dimensions High School Provides a Safe and Healthy Learning Environment. They Have Some Of The Best Teachers and They Really Know How To Give One On One Attention. They Get You To Participate and Every Student Respects One Another Like Family. We're A Small School and Everyone Knows We Could Use A Lot, Since We Have So Litte, But We Definitely Know How To Make Due. NDHS is awesome!!

New Dimensions High School is an excellent school. I have just completed my freshman year and i have enjoyed it. Comparing it to Liberty High School also in my area, it is great. There are not too many students and the administration is friendly but strict and can get things done. The only problem is limited majors. I do enjoy this high school and would not consider leaving.

I'm not a parent, but I do attend NDHS. It is a very good school. We might not have as many extra curricular activities as most high schools, but hello, we only have 300 students, as opposed to 3,000 like most schools. Each year we gain one or two activities. This past year we started a Baseball team and a Strategic Games club. The amount of school spirit in this school is ridiculous. For being such a small school, the students get very involved. As for violence, it isn't tolerated here.(To make it an even greater year, I would recommend becoming a member of some sort of club, it gets you more involved!)New Dimensions is a great school, and your son or daughter should be very proud to be able to attend NDHS.

I had some doubts when enrolling my student in this high school but I have to say that it was the best decision. I have seen the educational growth as well as the confidence developed in the few months she's been here. As any other school I see lack of parental participation but am aware that the school is doing everthing in their power to involve us as I have received numerous calls inviting me to all kinds of meetings. Keep up the good work!

New deminsions is tough but proud. Academics is essential and character is gauged. Problems are explored and resolution expected. A fair venue for further education and chalenges to the student. Discipline is difficult and rules followed. You begin as new but experience and testing reders the 'proof in the final product' a student who learns both academics and life goals.

Not many academic programs...

- submitted by a student

June 06, 2005
New Dimensions academic programs are extremely limited. Teachers have very little teaching experience which in affect has lead to students not progressing. Teacher turnover is extremely high along with very few extracurricular activities has lead to poor both parent and student involvement. I would not recommend this high school for your teenage son or daughter.
