I attended summer school for geometry the first year women were admitted. Was attending an excellent, very strict private all girls school. Once I got over the giggles of the unfamililar military tradition, my grade score increased 37 points, passing finals easily. It must have been my father who thought I would benefit from the discipline and he was right. Looking back, wished I spent all 4 years there. Great school and staff.
I graduated in 1972. Things were rougher in those days but it was and still is a very fine school. Taught me a lot. I am a very proud graduate of this fine institution!
My 2 sons both went to/are at NYMA, the eldest graduated in 2008,the youngest is a senior.So when my daughter was looking for a middle school,she wanted to go to NYMA.It is a coed school,but there is mostly boys.I however was not suprised at her choice,raised in a milatary family I am a navy pilot and my wife was an army officer before she died in combat.She is athletic,highly intelligent and a tomboy.She loves it.
This is my son s first year at NYMA. I am extremely happy with the school so far. The teachers are great as well as the new Superintended . The school presents great opportunity to a student who needs structure to excel. Most kids do best under some structure, this school offers great balance
I am a former cadet at NYMA, 1967-1974. I am very proud of what I learned there. I hope the school survives these trying economic times. They have always had top notch staff and like anything in life, you get out of it what YOU put into it. RIP Col. Castellano!
NYMA has been the best thing wer have done for our son. His confidence self steem has improved tremendously. The staff is superb form Major Coverdale his staff the teachers the nurse everyone cares about the safety and welfare of your child to the max. I know my son is having an excellent education. During this summer he took the admission test for private schools and the results were amazing. Thanks NYMA
The New York Military Academy was a perfect fit for me. Their guidance and constant reinforcement set me up for the future. I am graduating this year and am looking forward to pursuing my degree at one of New Jersey's best Universities. I was accepted to a number of excellent schools and I credit NYMA with enabling me to strive for excellence. I would sincerely recommend NYMA to anyone looking for a strict, college prep program. The faculty and staff are far more than committed and have done all within their powers to assist me. I am grateful for the New York Military Academy and appreciate its mission.
I found the teachers and the administration at NYMA to be superb. My son just completed his first year.
I am a former student/Cadet of NYMA. I attended because I was looking for a school that would prepare me for admission to West Point. What I got was a complete disaster. The school is hypocritical and the caliber of the young people they accept into their Corps is appalling. It was not the military aspect or the academics that were hard to stomach, it was the people themselves. I would never recommend NYMA to anyone. Spare your children and find another school.
I am very pleased with NYMA. In a short time I have seen my son transformed from an apathetic student into one who strives to do his best.
Very fine School! Teachers are very attentive, highly skilled, and take a personal interest in all students!
We have found the Academy a godsend for our son. He has matured under caring teachers and staff. It has given him a will to self achieve and motivated a 'can do' attitude. He has been challenged to join sport teams that I never imagioned him to be interested in and did it well. I highly recommend NYMA for your cadet.
We found that supervision during students free time should be stricter considering that the student to teacher/adult ratio is small. As for the academics, the level of education is very good, but we were led to believe that closer supervision would be instituted to make sure the students do and get their work in on time, (after all, these are teenagers and they will try to get away with doing the minimal). We also feel that stricter discipline/self-control should be taught to the students, considering this is one of the main reasons we send our children to military schools, and pay this kind of tuition. Closer communications with parents and teachers/adults in-charge should be practiced more. Overall, other than these issues, it is a very good school with a very good level of education. They just need to adhere to their sales pitch for closer supervision, and, 'teaching' students discipline.
i do not have the proper supervision as well as saftey that this school promises as they give their tour and presentation
