I would have highly recommended this school when Mrs Serrano was the kindergarten teacher. She was a TRUE Christian with a heart of gold and a GREAT teacher at that. She truly loved and cared about her "KIDS" and she did wonders for their volleyball team as well. It's too bad that the school decided to let her go. So now, I would NOT recommend this school at all. She made all the difference.

Amazing school. Went here for 5 years till I left. regret leaving so much. The students are awesome, teachers are loving. Yes, its small but it makes for more teacher-student interaction which leads to learning more. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

If you have a child going into Kindergarten. I HIGHLY reccomend Mrs. Serrano she is by far the most amazing teacher I have ever seen. My daughter was in her kindergarten class 7 years ago. Just yesterday my daughter received wonderful news about a scholarship and said "Mrs. Serrano would be so proud of me". after all these years she still wants to have Mrs. Serrano be proud of her. That is because Mrs. Serrano loves the kids she teaches, she is strict, but it is amazing what her students learn from her, I reccomend her 10000%.

Children here are taught curriculum that is on average 1 yr ahead of the public school system. The teachers love God and love the children.

My children have been going to this school for three years now, and I couldn't be more pleased! They transitioned from public school without any problems and have thrived in the Godly and loving atmosphere at NEBA. They love it at NEBA, and I would highly recommend this school to anyone who wants there children to learn without all the worldly rubbish they shovel down their throats in the public school system.

I am very pleased with the education my children are receiving a NEBA. They are taught to live Godly lives as well as receive a great education. The teaching staff truly care about each student, to the point they often sacrifice their own time to help students. SAT testing typically places the schools performance 2 years ahead of public schools in most academic areas.

Our children graduated from NEBA and excelled in their education. They went off to college and continued to excel due to their good education there. They were taught to live a godly life and to put God first in their lives. The sports program had the emphasis of "To God Be The Glory", and taught our children great sportsmanship to prepare for life as well. The staff is dedicated in their teaching and show love and care for the students.

for education and spiritual guidance, this school doesn't even compare to other schools in the area- public or private.

I used to go here. There are many other schools that give a better education and have better resources, but if you are looking for a disciplined, christian school, then this is one of the better ones. Know what you want for your kids, ask different sources, be aware of the pros and cons. Nothing is all good or all bad, so be educated and make choices consistent with your needs and values.

I am very pleased with neba and would recommend it to anyone looking to prepare their child for a life of godliness. The techers genuinely love my kids and want to see them do well. Scripture memory and chapel arms them for the attacks they will be bombarded with each day and into their adulthood. As a parent it is your job to prepare your child and this is a great place to do it.

I attended NEBA from Kindergarten through 12th grade. Over my 13 years of experience at NEBA, I have come to respect the school very much. The staff has an outstanding Christian morale. The teachers focus on Academic growth as well as spiritual growth. There is a great balance between the two. This staff is to be praised! They have prepared me both academically and spiritually. Overall, the Academy was a great experience for me and I am glad that my parents sent me to such a great Christian School

I wish I never put my children in this school for the number of years I did. I am so happy they are out of there. I wholeheartedly do not reccomend this school. I Pray for the changes needed to make it a great school again.

NEBA is a bad school. It does not teach a child anything at all! I went to that school and was misled into thinking I was getting a higher education. Later I go to a prestegious public school and I find out that everything was way behind and I am struggling!

Unfortunately my children went to NEBA most of their lives. NEBA does not prepare students for college. They don't teach students to write or think. If you want your child to be able to only spit back the facts the teachers feed them then this is the school for you. Students receive straight A's throughout their schooling then go to college and fail. The teachers though nice don't really care about the students. If they did they would train them. Instead they allow sports to be the end all. They have opportunity, but they are wasting it.

When i attended this school, i really enjoyed it. The atmosphere is definitely organized,yet I still enjoyed myself. Some of the rules most of the students and parents don't agree with. (the movie theatre and music restrictions,etc.)Sports here were fun because you became closer with your peers as well as met others from different Christian opponents. As far as teachers who love God and put their whole hearts into teaching, this school is top notch! The chapel services are really great and as the male teachers preach one knows how much they really care about their students and their spiritual welfare. I love this school and the high spiritual and academic excellence they strive for. -b.m.

I think this is a very good school with proper and fun activities I go there. And me and my friends talk about different music. And we don't care for the movie theatre rule because the school does not rule our lives outside of its classrooms. I think really that the women teachers take their job too seriously and sometimes the men don't really know how or when to give demerits. Or as we say 'checks'

I first attended the academy when i was in eighth grade. I liked it there, but the school puts way too much pressure on the little stuff that gets you demerits. The teachers seemed way too involved in what the students do and some seemed demerit and check happy. Overall, the school was good. The sports program was okay and the kids were fun to be around.

I attended New England Baptist Academy for my freshman year in Highschool and I did not like it at all. This school is very strict to the point that their rules are unrealistic. For example, students recive demerits for attending the movie theatres, listening to the music of their choice to simple things like accidently leaving your book in class. If you want your child to have a fun normal highschool life do not send them here.

I think this school is a good one but i honestly think that they put WAY to much pressure on the kids there and i know they are doing that so that the kids are very well educated, but honestly when i was in class my teacher was doing grammar and he flew through it so fast that i wasnt able to put down the answer. and i think that they should actually go over it and another day. my teacher asked us if we got what he was talking about and i was about to raise my hand. then all of a sudden he said nver mind you should get it and he went on the tha next question. so i was very upset because i didnt get it, but my point is that the teachers should take more time to go over the problems or questions with the student(s).

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

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.
