My son came to NUHS from home schooling. (not a troubled kid) New Urban was our choice based on the interrelated curriculum, small size and family atmosphere. The overwhelming majority of students I have had the pleasure to meet at New Urban are bright talented and articulate. I could not ask for a more engaged and caring staff and have recommend the New Urban program to many parents. I feel a great frustration at the looser bad kid label it has been unjustly given. I would encourage any prospective family to take a tour of the school, meet the staff, and students and see for themselves what a great place New Urban is.
i dont know what i would do without this school. the staff and students are like family. and without them and that school i wouldn't be about to graduat
Best school ever. The teachers care about you alot and they push you. The teachers are like your friends. They have really good relationships with teacher and students.
This school is awesome. the teachers actually care about you graduating. there isnt much drama at the school. i'd totally recommend the school.
It's set up structurally for a student to earn credits quicker and still be able to graduate, but, if you're worried about your child being introduced to more troubled kids than they already have on their own, this probably isn't the place to send them. Also, they have a no smoking policy, which is great, but the punishment doesn't quite fit the crime. My child was suspended for the rest of the day (a Thursday) and the next day (a Friday) therefore giving her a 3 1/2 day weekend. She felt rewarded. Whatever happened to Saturday school?
This school has the right idea, yet it seems that the students run the school. There are great kids here, but there are also very troubled and dangerous kids that seem to get away with whatever they want.
