    "I have two children at New Century School, and we have loved our time at this school. We are very excited about the increased emphasis on STEM subjects along with the continued environmental studies. The teachers are passionate and committed, families are welcome to be involved in any way they choose, and the kids seem genuinely happy to be there and engaged in their learning. We really couldn't ask for anything more!"

    "I find it very disturbing that negative reviews of NCS seem to mysteriously disappear off of this website. As with any school it has its pros and cons."

    "In the interest of full disclosure, I am a NSC parent and site council member. I have a full time job, as does my husband and a very busy life. I make it a priority to volunteer my limited free time at the school because I love it and I love the school as does my 1st grader and my soon to be kindergartener. NCS teaches children to be citizens of the world - and how to deal with a variety of people and situations. In terms of classroom composition, we are the same as neighborhood schools. I often refer to my son's teacher as the child whisperer - she is brilliant. I have found the Administration to be solid and responsive as are the other teachers. I can't imagine my kids at any other school. You get back out of life what you put into it. My review is continued below."

    "Six more weeks and my daughter will be done at New Century, and I couldn't be happier about that. After months of getting picked on by an older student, and of me telling my daughter to let her teacher know she was being bullied, she finally told me that her teacher is instructing the students to write notes to her instead of telling her in front of the class. Apparently that would hurt the bullies' feelings to be called out publicly like that. My daughter is in Kindergarten, how is she supposed to write a note explaining what's going on? I let the teacher know this was not an acceptable answer to the problem. I don't care if the bullies are special needs. A bully is a bully. That kind of behavior cannot be allowed to continue. Also, for a school with an environmental focus, I find it extremely ironic that my daughter's teacher has yet to figure out how to send a group email and has resorted to printing the monthly newsletter. I also feel very unrepresented by the volunteers. Most of them are stay at home moms. The representation for the people who have to work an hourly job and don't have a rich spouse is non-existent. This is not a school for divorced parents."

    "My daughter is a 1st grader at NCS and we couldn't be happier! She literally comes home daily excited about everything she is learning. The hands-on, project based learning is perfect for her inquisitive mind. The teaching staff are phenomenal at keeping the kids engaged in learning - which is exactly what I am looking for as my children build their foundation of academics. One of the key things I was looking for in a school was a small community that my children would not get lost in - I feel that I have found that at NCS. Literally all of the teachers know all of the students, and the fact that students stay with each teacher for 2 years means that they can get the personalized approach that is needed for their learning style! I also love that the school, through it's focus on environmental themes, are growing socially and environmentally conscious members of the community - so important in today's world. We are so proud of our choice!!!"
