New Horizons School

  • New Horizons School (NHS) is a private, non-religious, elementary school, which I started in June 1988 with six students.
  • We now have over 200 junior kindergarten through eighth grade students during the regular school year and a staff of 25.
  • NHS is the only school in the tri-city area of Fremont, Union City and Newark that provides the combination of an excellent academic program, extended daycare for working parents, and teaching of emotional balance.
  • We use a unique educational system called Workshop Way, which recognizes learning differences among everyone and uses multiple teaching styles in teaching children.
  • Reading and math lessons are individualized.  Phonics, critical thinking and emotional balance are incorporated into the curriculum.
  • We assisted in the writing of a book on the subject of emotional intelligence and balance, called "Teaching Children to Love", written and published by the Institute of HeartMath.
  • The book, featuring our students, has been on the national talk show circuit and has attracted the attention of local and national media.
