School Reviews

  • Recommended May 21, 2012 - Awesome, incredible, unusual curriculum where my children learned how to love learning, challenges and how to think for themselves, as well as how to take an active role in their learning process. Wish there were more "New Schools" around! - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended May 21, 2012 - The New School of Monmouth County is innovative in its hands-on, project-based and holistic approach to education, and allows children to explore learning far beyond the boundaries that traditional lesson plans dictate. Children are taught to learn with open minds and to care for those around them with open hearts. If you are looking for an educational utopia, this is a close as it gets. TNS fosters a life-long love of learning and allows children to follow their own path towards knowledge. Encouraged with enthusiasm, limited only by themselves, an ever-evolving and fluid curriculum allows children to continually and fully explore a wide variety of subjects. No arbitrary grading system, no tests to fret over, and no homework to impinge on family time or free play, the sky is the limit. Here at the The New School, children never cram to learn for the test, because life isn''t just about the test. Best of all, children truly love going here. The New School of Monmouth County teaches tomorrow''s leaders - today. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended May 21, 2012 - The New School is a fabulous environment for kids to grow and learn. Its strength is it develops each child by emphasizing a love of learning (bootm up) instead of top down rote learning. As a result the children are incredibly well adjusted, very strong communicators, taught how to handle conflict resolution and allowed to become real people who are never affraid to engage adults directly and look to understand why and how. the instructors are excellent, the facilities are limited but this also adds to the group feeling from the students of "it''s our school." We''re thrilled and see this as a springboard for bigger and better things in our children''s lives. - Posted by Parent
