I just recently enrolled my child at New Haven, but have heard wonderful things about the school within the community. I heard that the school was undergoing some changes with new teachers and a new principal. When I went to the school to register, I was impressed with the staff, and got to meet the new principal. I'm very excited for my child to be attending New Haven. There seems to be great communication in place, and everyone was extremely friendly and inviting. I'm very excited for my child, and am looking forward to a great year.

New Haven Elementary has been a wonderful school for our family. Our three children have learned how to become good students and helpful members of their community. Our children have enjoyed their teachers and have made many good friends with other children who attend this terrific school.

New Haven is a wonderful school community. They have outstanding teachers, some of the best in the district. We were planning to build a house and intentionally choose property in this school area based on strong recommendations. We couldn't be happier that we listened. Our three children are receiving a great education, have wonderful friends with caring and involved parents, and get to enjoy school in an atmosphere free from bullying and negativity that plagues many schools in this day and age. 5 stars to the staff at New Haven for creating such a wonderful and safe learning environment.

My two girls attend New Haven and the teachers and staff are wonderful. The atmosphere is warm, kind and nurturing and the rules are enforced consistently among the staff! They have enjoyed their time at New Haven and I would highly recommend the school to others.

New Haven is a smaller elementary school in Columbia and we enjoy that about it. The teachers and staff are very accessible and approachable and great with the kids. There could definitely be more parent involvement, but its not at the fault of the school as they welcome parents to be involved as much as possible. We really enjoy New Haven.

New Haven has wonderful attentive staff. Their focus on children's education is excellent. It is the mission of the New Haven Community to meet the developmental needs of the whole child, empowering each student to be a productive, responsible citizen in our changing world. The goal of New Haven school is to develop independent, self-reliant, life-long learners. We love New Haven.

Our child was a student at this school for a part of this school year when we moved here. We were not impressed with the way the staff handled problems within the school. We honestly felt that they look at you in a way such as: "if your child has not been a student in our school since day one" they are discriminated and treated differently. We transferred our child to another school.

New Haven has a warm friendly atomsphere where parents are welcome. Everytime I enter the school, I see smiling faces on the children and the teachers. The pricipal is also very approachable and welcoming.

My child was enrolled in the preschool program in New Haven. I was amazed at what lengths the teacher went to for my child. I don't think that there could have been a better start than there. The whole atomsphere is wonderful and designed to bring out the most of your student. They focused on his stength to help him learn the best way possible. When we moved the hardest part was taking my child out of the classroom. It was an amazing way for my child to start his school years. It is family oriented and the parents are as big of part of the class as the teachers.

New Haven is a great school that sometimes is unrecognized for it's wonderful attributes. The atmosphere within the school is serious but focused on helping to develop your child into a strong student and person. Parents are highly encouraged to interact with teachers, staff and within school functions. With newer leadership, the focus continues to remain on academics and student recognition. This is a great place for a child to learn, accept challenges and develop great character qualities! Children are provided with many services to learn and civic clubs to explore their interests! A great place to begin a foundation for learning.

New Haven has met all my expectations of a good school.Smaller classes with better individual attention, constant feedback about performance and suggestions from friendly teachers are some positive features. Not to mention the extracurricular activities like math club, physical education, art and fitness club. They also have a great after/pre school program.

The teachers and parents work as a team to provide the children with the best resources to learn and achieve life skills. This school is exemplary in my opinion.
