New Sweden Consolidated School may be small and in a rural community; but, don't let that fool you. In fact, this school has a lot to offer. Small class size offers individualized attention and academic immersion. Students are encouraged to participate in academic, extracurricular and community activities. New Sweden has strong music, robotic and art appreciation programs. Everyone is encouraged to participate in the extracurricular activities. Soccer, cross country running, basketball, show choir, cross country skiing, band, choir, public speaking, young authors, math team, track and field and baseball are taught throughout the year. Community service is highly valued within the school. The students help in the kitchen clean up duties and work on projects to maintain the school. This year, they have constructed a greenhouse and will be growing vegetables for their lunch program. New Swedens' food program has been showcased because of their ability to provide healthy, homemade breakfast, snack and lunchtime meals for their students. The teachers take the time to know and encourage the students. My child has learned so much since he enrolled in New Sweden.
This school creates an excellent learning environment and looks for every opportunity to give students a hands on learning experience. New Sweden School has a very strong music program, robotic program, and art appreciation class. Students are also taught community history and plans events that celebrate their Swedish culture. Each spring students learn able the Maple Sugar harvest by tapping trees, and they also have many other unique learning activities. Community service is highly valued at the New Sweden School because we are a low income community. Staff and students know how important it is to help each other to succeed, and we strive to instill the value of community service to our students. The Principal, teaching staff, and school board are extremely supportive of the school, community, and most importantly, the students. New Sweden School is small school in a rural community, and I like that the teachers and staff take the time to get to know each students, and truly work together to give them a successful learning experience.
