My son has attended Nfld School of Arts and Technology for 4 years. He is happy and likes going to school. He has friends and great test scores too! Here students need to satisfy requirements in Sci, Language Arts, Math and other core areas, but at ARTech students may incorporate academic fields into a project that is of interest to them. Skilled advisors guide students throughout the all the phases...proposal, outline development, research, writing, presentation and peer/teacher review. This isn't the place to send your child if s/he isn't going to be disciplined and fully engaged in their learning. But, if you want to send your child to a place where diverse students treat everyone with respect, a place where it's ok, and even cool, to have a passion for learning (languages,sculptures, physics of rockets, Victorian social customs, green technology, write and perform stand-up comedy) then check it out.
