I would like to give a huge thank you to Mr. Castro our Parent Coordinator. Mr. Castro is only a phone call or email away, he always goes the extra mile. He knows every student, every parent & goes out of his way to make sure parents have the info we need to keep up to date with what's going on. He is a gentle giant & I am grateful we are so lucky to have him. So with all that said, you are simply the best! With much gratitude, The Salmon family

The reviews listed are quite old, not only has the school shed its poor reputation but they have changed their name to CGSI,the Caroll Gardens School of Innovation. They are currently listed as an Apple distinguished school. My daughter is currently a 7th grader & has done very well. The teachers & staff go above & beyond to know every child. It is an all ICT school & in the recent last 2 years has been becoming a bit more diversified. They have a variety of afterschool activities for the kids. The school is definitely worth checking out...I'm glad I did! Kim Salmon

I was hesitant to send my son to New Horizons because of the low rating but I liked the small school approach and decided to try it. I am glad I did. My sons teachers are amazing and provide individualized attention as much as possible, great communication with parents via engrade. He has excelled academically and socially.

My daughter has done very well in the 6th grade here. She hated reading in 5th grade and now I see her reading all the time without having to prompt her. Her teachers are caring and she has shown more interest in her classwork since starting at New Horizons.

New Horizons is a safe, clean learning enviornment that offers students a chance to excell. The staff is highly qualified and dedicated and the principal has a clear vision for the school. There is a high teacher to student ratio, so students often work in small groups and get one on one attention.

My child is a special ed student in 6th grade. I have found the teachers and the administration committed and effective. My child is enjoying school and learning a lot. The special ed and mainstream kids seem to get along well.

Very serious social issues in this school. Staff seems in over their heads. They mix special education students with regular education students and the mix does not work very well as far as productivity goes. Parental involvement is seen as a hindrance to the agenda of the staff and for the most part, discouraged.
