    "My child is a kindergartner at New City and loves the school and her teacher! She comes home bursting with new ideas and information (how a starfish walks, what readers do, how she and her math partner solved a problem). The constructivist pedagogical model that the school's curriculum is based on is on the cutting edge in terms of developing critical thinking, problem solving, and analytic skills. All of this in two languages!"

    "I love this school and my daughter does too. She has been going there since kinder and is now a 4th grader. I could not ask for a better more caring school than New City. The kids, the parents, the staff and all the teachers really make us all one family. We all look out for each other and are a great family. It really is a small school with BIG IDEAS!!"

    "New City school used to be a great place. There are some great teachers like Armando but many of the great ones, like claudia, jose, and brenda have left. Since closing the pine campus New City school has really gone downhill. Safety is a big concern and having classrooms in a big open space creates an environment of chaos. The school lacks accountability and if your children have any concerns with safety no one will help you. All of my children attended this school at one point but none of them are there now. I would not recommend this school to anyone. The school claims to have a strong game plan for your kids but for the most part many teachers are just shooting from the hip. My child would start to read a text and suddenly be moved onto something else without any closure or culminating task. It is really sad. We really wanted to love this school because in theory it sounds great. If your child attends NCS I suggest you sit in and observe and ask yourself if that environment is truly helping your child."

    "Both my children go to the Pine Ave. campus of New City PS and we have been very happy with this forward thinking school. The K-2 and 3-5 multi age classrooms create a wonderful sense of community and caring among the students. Both boys are excelling in math and LOVE the music, art and science program and we love the bilingual instruction. It is amazing to know that all students and teachers, and almost all parents know each other. The parents are fiercely supportive of the school and the students. The teachers are committed and teach to the whole child. How refreshing and inspiring. My boys are curious about the world around them, full of questions and LOVE to learn. They don't view school as a chore or a burden, they are excited to go back to school after breaks and love their teachers. It's ridiculous that this website scores New City at "1 out of 10." This scoring is another example of how off track our society is on what really matters in preparing our young children for the future."

    "Learning is reflected in so much more than test scores. Do our kids love learning? Are they curious? Do they have confidence that they can find the answers to their inquiries? Are they part of a community that is working in cooperation with one another vs. competition? Are they given the tools of problem solving? The kids at New City Public Schools are learn all of these skills and more. Your child will greatly benefit from his or her experience at the New City Public Schools."
