TNCA is a wonderful place. Students are challenged and expectations are high. Students are also able to move at their own pace. My second grader was bored to tears in public school, but at TNCA this past year, she was able to move ahead and completed curriculum for a grade above. There is a lot of free outdoor time which even my middle schooler loved. I cannot say enough good things about TNCA. This is a special place. The lower grades and teachers are fantastic. I strongly recommend for parents to check it out as an alternative to public middle school.
Strong academic standards, but very poor current leadership. Allows intimidating/bullying behavior to occur with little to no follow up. Current principle is very closed to suggestions for improvement or growth and tends to blame parents when issues are brought forward.
The New Classical Academy has exceeded any and all expectations I had. My child is absolutely thriving in this kind, intelligent, and nurturing environment. Very excited for the school to start its Pre-Kindergarten program so that my younger child can benefit, as well.
Flexible and creative learning environment with lots of outdoor time for running around and imaginative play. Promotes self-direction, exploration, and original thinking. Committed and passionate teachers. Some policy/procedure kinks still need to be worked out, but I believe this will happen in time. In any case, no place is perfect, and my kids absolutely love school.
A great school for self-motivated kids who are excited about learning and having fun. My daughter has been at the school for 4 years now, and is still excited every day about going to school, about learning new things, and being part of the NCA community. She refuses to go anywhere else, loves her teachers and has made wonderful friends of all ages.
The New Classical Academy has created an environment for my children to be happy, self actualized and academically challenged. I know my children are and will be well prepared for high school and beyond.
