When I walk into a Parent/Teacher Conference I know for a fact there is nothing you are going to tell me about my son that I don't already know. But when you walk out of a Parent/Teacher Conference and look at your spouse and say, 'WOW ! This teacher was dead on! She absolutely knows our child inside and out, that's amazing'. You know you've entered a school with remarkable substance. For that, I am immensely grateful.

My son is in his last year at NB and I am terrified for what lies ahead for him in middle school. New Boston has been great with him once he was IEP and we learned the areas and personality traits that go along with ADHD are key to success for a child with this disability. Before he was IEP was not so good but none of us knew. The staff works, communicates and is great in keeping the lines of communication open with us but as a parent you are your childs best advocate but NB is a great school if your child has any form of special needs. The principal and vice principal are fabulous. Mrs. Grenier and Mrs. Fillault are top notch wonderful teachers in my book and have been awesome. I will miss this school.
