This school is a great improvement from their other school. However, I do wish it would be an easier process to get in touch with the teachers.
This is an excellent elementary school. I have two children currently attending the school, and I could not be more pleased. I love the learning environment, and the staff is a group of dedicated professionals. I also am very pleased that all students learn Mandarin Chinese. It is a beautiful school with great resources. The staff demands respect and is very caring to the students. Highly recommend.
My daughter attended this school for 3 years and we loved it. The staff is amazing they work hard to make sure all of the students learn and grow. I love the world view, with the kids learning about other countries and cultures. They also use technology to enhance the learning and involve the kids. A really great school.
My son has attended this school since it opened and we love it. The staff is friendly, teachers are fantastic, and the school is beautiful and state of the art! My son has thrived at this school and learned some Mandarin as well. This is a great school choice for anyone moving to the area!
My daughter is in Kindergarten this year and loves learning Chinese. There are lots of fun school activities and as a parent I appreciate that the school is "green" and provides up to speed technological tools. I also really like the international concept. My daughter recognizes flags from around the world, which is kind of cool.
The administration is by far the most involved caring group of professionals I have encountered in both public and private schools. I was concerned my children would not receive the necessary basics since they would be learning a demanding foreign language; I was wrong. They have grown leaps and bounds academically and socially. Our children used to go to a private school and I can say hands down they are receiving a better education with many new opportunities. Truly happy with the school and faculty. We have children in college and have always held academics in high regard, thank you NCIES for being all that you are!
If you are relocating to the Jack Britt area. I would recommend New Century International. This school gets Five Stars ***** from me. These schools have the newest technology with state of the art classrooms. The Mandarin Chinese program is wonderful. My son is learning to speak Chinese and connecting with other students across the globe. I feel like this school is taking the students into the next generation. My sons reading and computer skills has improved dramatically. Not to mention the positive atmosphere in the school. Everyday it feels warm and welcoming. As a parent I am very happy with the teachers and the administration. Next to a private school it does not get any better than this!
If you plan to move to the Jack Britt area, you should definitely consider New Century. It has been a wonderful school for my children for the last two years. All of their teachers have been great and very supportive. The school is state of the art and beautiful, as is the staff. As another parent commented, the PTA and parent involvement were non-existent last year but things seemed to have turned around and the moral at the school is much better and quite frankly it's a fun place to be. I admire the administration for the way they demand respect from the students as it seems to be something lacking in a lot of kids these days. If you chose this school you won't be disappointed!
My son has enjoyed and thrived during his fourth and now fifth grade year at new century. I'm amazed at the continual improvements with high standards of education and adding additional activities and clubs for the kiddos! We especially love the family reading nights. Filled with interactive games and activities to cultivate an atmosphere of "The love of learning". We love our school.
I love this school! My child has been extremely happy there and the staff is awesome. The principal is always accessible and easy to talk with. My child is in the fourth grade and he loves both of his teachers and his principal. My child has learned a lot about the world around him and this is good because we don't get to travel much outside of the US. Great job New Century!
My son attended this school for first grade, his teacher was awesome; however I can't say that about the rest of the staff! Parent involvement is a joke at this school, the office staff is the most rude I have EVER incountered; and the principal lacks in every way. I can state all this for fact as I was a member of the PTA of this school, which was also a joke for involvement not only from parents but from staff as well. The school has no set guidelines in place for discipline, they were more concerned with trying to be a "friend" to everyone instead of discipling those that really needed it. I would recommend you take your child to another school. As I have done.
My son is in second grade his teacher take her time with each student Excellent school, Have Chinese class. I loved ...
