My son went there in 2014. He got beaten up in the bathroom for "being gay." And the school and Principle tried to blame the victim.

I cannot say enough great things about New Holland Elementary! Our principal and teachers are amazing - super supportive and very devoted to the kids! We also have an awesome PTO - these volunteers work tirelessly to make things happen for the kids - feild trips, special events, free books from the book fair, etc. Highly recommend this school!!

Have had three kids go through the school district. All have different personalities and learning strengths and each was met with excellent teachers who helped them achieve their potential. Faculty goes above and beyond.

I am suprised this school had such a good rating. It has been nothing but a nightmare for my child who moved from a nearby district. I will admit that I know things from the inside that I should probably not know. Otherwise, it has been horrible for my child. Some of the teachers just simply should not have a job. They need to seriously check their curriculum there. The principle, who pretends she is on the childs side or the parents, is not. She is charming though and leads you to beleive this. Reconsider before moving into the area. I would sell right now if I could just to get my daughter out of there.

In the time my kids have been at this school, things have changed drastically. Teachers are under an enormous amount of pressure from the administration and unfairly, perhaps unknowingly, pass the testing pressure to students. Two emotional support rooms have been added. This has caused, and continues to cause, a series of problems and distractions. I am uncomfortable with the fact that other students are using profanity, throwing chairs and threatening teachers. I am even less please that very little is being done about these outbursts. Discipline in the school is really lacking, for emotional students and others alike. In fact, my son has been bullied, hit, kicked and chocked and the school seemed to do nothing about it. I should say, that many of the teachers are very caring and strive to provide a good education. I think the administration needs to work harder to make

My son came to this school in 2003 and has loved it since the first day. He started here halfway through the school year and while on summer break he had to have surgery that completely changed his life. The school has been wonderful helping him to adapt and learn with his new limitations. I have never met a more wonderful group of people anywhere. Thanks to the great staff here my son really loves school. It just don't get any better than this!!!!
