Prior to attending New Visions Learning center, my son attended daycare and Pre-K at the YMCA. After three years at the YMCA, it was time for my son to attend Kindergarten. I was once again referred to another school that was thought to be The cream of the crop . With hesitation, I went and saw the school and fell in love with the staff and classroom size. At the time of our visit (July), I was informed by the YMCA that I would be lucky if my son would be able to write the first letter of his name by the start of Kindergarten (September). His first day of school arrived and by the end of September my son was not only writing his first name but his last name as well. At the end of the second month, he was reading and writing sight words. The teachers are Phenomenal. They understand that each child is an individual and are attentive to the individual need of each child. My son is not only enjoying school as he learning at an advanced pace, his self-esteem has grown. A child that was once seen as academically defeated is now an Achiever and Overcomer. I thank the staff of New Visions for your expertise.

New Visions Learning Center is an excellent school with a superior academic program. My daughter has been enrolled in New Visions a mere five months and I have seen a huge difference in her eagerness to learn. I absolutely love New Visions.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
