My son went k4 through 2nd grade in a Albany private school, housed in a multi-million dollar building. He could not read, spell or do simple math. I hired tutors and put him in public school for 2 years. He continued to fall behind. I enrolled him in New Beginning in the middle of 4th grade. He has been there for a year and a half and has done a complete turn around. He is completely on grade level now and has even received awards for having A honor roll. And as far as grade level academics & attention are concerned, the students receive as much one on one attention as is needed for each individual child. This is reflected by his state mandatory ITBS test. He came from 1st grade level to 5th grade level in one year. The building might not be fancy, but the education inside wonderful!!!
This school has teachers that care for the children, but their academics are lacking in many areas. The students are not learning at the same level as other schools. The mixed grade classes make it difficult for the students to get the individualized attention that is advertised as a strength of the school. The schools physical conditions are not as good as they should be to house students.
My son graduated from New Beginning Christian School. He graduated with a 4.0, was dual-enrolled at Darton College his Senior year through the Ga411 Accel program. He was placed on the Merit list for his 4.0 college average. An excellent education and a wonderful learning environment that models biblical teaching is available at New Beginning.
