    "The emotional and academic growth that my child has undergone in her five years at this school is nothing short of incredible. She has learned to navigate the complex world of interpersonal skills through the school's conflict resolution process while learning to research independently as well as in a group setting. If we had to do it all over again, we would chose this school without hesitation. Any environment has its issues - what you make of the process is what defines you. Project-based, child-led learning...it's what you'll find here. Along with happy, thriving children. Take a step away from the traditional educational model and let your child's imagination soar!"

    "We view The New School as a gift to our children; it promotes cooperation, positivity, conflict resolution, commitment, creativity and independence to name just a few of the many qualities that come to mind. We feel the philosophy of TNS fosters the development of a strong work ethic while nurturing the social and emotional growth of the student- an imperfect but invaluable process afforded to every child. While there is no homework or testing, we have found our children to be exhausted at the end of a school day - a day full of learning and play, the true work of the child."

    "The New School incredible! Susan Chilvers, still director of the school, founded it almost 46 years ago. She is always ready to share a story and always there to listen to yours! She knows each and every child and family personally. Her teachers are loyal and many parents are very involved at school. The New School is a home away from home for our children and has become a part of our family. TNS follows the traditional curriculum in a non traditional way. There is time for play and the arts both being important aspects of learning. There is no testing nor homework, leaving after school time to spend with family or friends. Here, children learn because they love to learn not because they need to score for a test. They learn at their own pace in 3 multi- age groups working on projects within their own class as well as with children from the other classes creating opportunities to learn from each other and to teach each other. Naturally while working with each other conflicts may arise. Conflict resolution is at the core of the school s believe system. Children will learn early on how to resolve conflict which will benefit them for the rest of their social and professional life."

    "The new school has been at the cornerstone of alternative education for 46 years. It is staffed by some of the most experienced educators in New Jersey. I not only love what my daughter is learning but also how she is learning it. The School supports her entire social emotional and academic growth. Their process of conflict resolution provide children with real world skills. I would highly recommend the school to anyone who is looking for a liberal, alternative, child-centered school."
