Current Parent: Sunnie
Why did you choose New City School for your children?
I would have to say the curriculum (Multiple Intelligence) and then the sense of community. Both are embedded in everything my child experiences at NCS. I also feel that they welcome the "clingy" parents. As a new Mom with a new student at NCS this makes me feel at ease.
What do you love most about New City School?
It has to be the love the teachers and administration shows for the job they do. They make my child feel like she is exactly where she's supposed to be.
Pick one word that best describes the school: why did you choose that word?
Community. It's not just about one person, family, grade level, etc. It's about everyone's part they play in the success of the school.
In what ways have you seen your child grow and develop as a result of their New City School experience?
Though this is our first year in 3/4s, I've seen my child sing songs of subjects relevant to what I would like her to be learning at this age. These subjects are age appropriate topics and are relevant to what we discuss at home (i.e. cleaning up, making new friends, etc.). This is very helpful!
What would you tell another parent to encourage them to enroll at New City?
It's unlike any other school you've experienced! If you're looking for a place where you KNOW your child will belong/fit in, also where you as a parent can get involved in your child's academic experience, NCS is the place for you!
