So glad that my children are attending NBCS - the students and parents of New Boston are blessed to have such a wonderful school.

I love the school because not only do the teachers take the time to get to know the kids and work with them when they need it, the parents come and volunteer their time to help in the classroom and get to know and work with the kids too. It is amazing to see the care taken with everyone, no matter the circumstance. They consistently offer stimulating educational options for my kids to help them grow into productive citizens.

I love everything about it - the teachers, the beautiful building and playground, the close-knit community that contributes time and efforts. It truly is 'A Special Place to Learn and Grow'. Both my children received a great educational experience at NBCS and I miss being there (kids are in middle school and high school).

New Boston Central School has it all: great leadership, energetic teachers, engaged students, and a partnership with community. Academic rigor, social responsibility, and arts integration are the watchwords here.

Every time I go there to see my grandchildren in any school activity, the energy and caring of the entire community is so very obvious. If Hillary Clinton needed a model for her book, 'It Takes A Village', she wouldn't have had to look any further than New Boston Central School.

NBCS is a terrific school that strives to meet all children's needs in engaging, meaningful, developmentally appropriate ways. The positive atmosphere radiates throughout the school every day. It truely is a special place to learn and grow!
—Submitted by a parent


Posted April 22, 2010

I love the small, 'close-knit' sense of community that NBCS offers. All of my children have benefited from their experiences at NBCS from basic math and reading to 'presidential receptions,' artist in residence programs, and even african dancing on the fairgrounds! It is 'rich' experiences like these that help children grow into well-rounded adults!
