New Prospect Elementary School has been an answer to prayer for my grandson and our entire family. My grandson is a 1st grader and we transferred him to New Prospect after having very negative experiences at another local school. New Prosepect immediately recognized his potential and instead of pushing for ADD or ADHD diagnosis from his doctor, they recognized boredom and gave him advanced work. He is thriving and excited about school. My daughter actually broke down in tears after meeting with the prinicipal, teachers, and staff - she was SO relieved to know that her son was going into a happy and nurturing enviornment. We cannot recommend this school highly enough!

My granddaughter is in 2nd grade and has attended New Prospect since Kindergarten. I raised my two children in highly rated schools, but I believe New Prospect Elementary is a cut above all of the schools that I've dealt with in the past. I commend the principal, teachers, and all staff from office, janitorial, to cafeteria, in making my granddaughter feel more like family rather than just a student. The staff truly care about the kids and my granddaughter looks forward to attending school daily.

New Prospect is a great school. The principal, teachers and other staff are very helpful and always nice. My daughter loves attending school at New Prospect. I questioned my decision when she started Kindergarten but then realized this was the best choice.

New prospect is the best school you could send your child to.The principal & teachers really care about their students.They are also very welcoming to the parents.If there is a school program or activity they invite you to join your child and to bring your younger children with you,wich helps mothers like me to be able to share my sons school year with him...Thanks new prospect for the wonderful years you have given my son

As far as I am concerned you couldn't ask for a better school. The principal is super and all the teachers are great. They know all the students by name. I love the fact it is such a close-knit school. Wished they had a High School also.
