I have 2 children that attend New Bedford. This school works with each child. teacher to child ratio is wonderful. Every person in the school knows every child. They make you feel like family. The teaching staff works wonderful with my children. they have stayed after just to help when my kids have asked them to. They go out of their way to make time available for parents to get involed with the school, after normal hours. The principal helps with all aspects of education with the children. He has always had an open door when i go to the school. Answers all questions i have every asked him.

Three years ago two of my children transferred to new Bedford academy from another school. One was in third grade. Coming from a different't school he could not read or even write his own name! Now in fifth grade he is doing very well! He gets the extra help he needs from the NBA staff. It is more one on one and small group instruction. At the other school he just fell threw the cracks, and never had one day of homework. New Bedford Academy I know is the right thing for all three of my kids!!!

My grandson transferred to NBA in Oct. 06. Our family is very pleased with the school and staff. My grandson is a special needs student with ADHD. The NBA is helping him tremendously to deal with this a still be an active participant in the classroom. The academics are challenging but, the staff is excellent in helping each child stretch for the potential to meet the challenge. Donna Miller Temperance, MI

I enrolled my younger son in New Bedford Academy when we moved to this area in 2001, after he and my older son had been attending a private school. The first year was not the greatest. The second year was really great that by the end of the second year I decided to move my older son to this school as well, this year has been great for both my son's. I like the teachers they are superb, very professional. The principal is very friendly and professional. There are always communications betwwen parents and teachers. Vivian Cosgrove

My son is in Kindergarten at NBA and I can't tell you how pleased I am with this school! I love the fact that there is a uniform dress code, and especially the small class sizes. His teachers are superb and he is learning so much. I can't say enough about NBA! We are very happy that we chose NBA for our children's education over our local school.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. Currently, GreatSchools' ratings reflect 2013 MEAP results; ratings will be updated after 2014 Michigan Merit Examination (MME) results are released. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

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.
