School Reviews

I've sent two of my three children there. With the oldest, I didn't know about N.E.W. Christian Academy. I find their programs focus on the overall development and wellbeing of my children. Teachers and the directors were very attentive to my kids, which one is timid and quiet whereas the other is quite vocal and assertive. They provide many year round extracurricular activities such as Tae Kwon Do, music and ballet.After graduating from there, both of my children were enrolled in gift & talent program. I highly recommend this preschool to parent who want to develop and prepare their children to not only excel and school work but also to adjust to larger social interactions.
