At the New American Academy, the school day begins with a 90 minute period, during which the students do group exercise and have breakfast and the teacher teams conference about their students and strategize for the day. This is great for my active 5-year-old son, who is able to get his energy out early and is ready to focus on learning when he enters the classroom. And as a parent, I love knowing that every morning his teachers are checking in with each other to plan ways to ensure that he (and the other students) have a successful day. I love the focus on collaborative learning. The teachers work in teams and model collaboration for the kids, who are be doing very unique inter-disciplinary project-based units. The warmth and productivity of the classrooms is unlike anything I've seen in any of the, very nice, public schools that I've toured. I encourage everybody to visit and see it for themselves. I love the idea of cooperative teaching teams and the warmth of
Upon hearing about The New American Academy's model, I was immediately intrigued. Once I visited, I was absolutely blown away by the thoughtful execution of how to best meet children's varying needs. Although the idea of 60 students in one classroom was initially mind-boggling, the fact is that the children are very rarely taught in big groups and they are actually broken up into smaller groups, which makes for a 15:1 ratio (something unheard of in the public school system). The teachers are provided with ongoing training and support and it is quite obvious that they thoroughly enjoy their jobs and absolutely love the children. One of my favorite aspects of The New American Academy is the fact that the same teachers my daughter has in Kindergarten will be the same teachers all through to the 5th grade. This continuity allows for the teachers, students and their families to develop a strong, long-term relationship where a child's growth and development can be better appreciated. I encourage all parents to visit the school and see for themselves the amazing things that are happening every day at The New American Academy.
My son started going to this school since October and I couldn't be happier.The teachers have open communication with the parents .Parents are highly involved in this school from after school programs to during the day.
