Reviews for New Heights Educational Group

Rating: 5 stars  

This is a great organization that goes out of its way to be innovative and find ways to connect volunteers with students.

I was looking for an opportunity to tutor online and Pam worked with me to make it happen. Really enjoyed connecting with my student and helping her progress in her math skills.

I have been involved in education volunteering since 1999 for various organizations. Never have I seen a more dedicated and committed group of folks that really are about helping others achieve their goals. The group's mission of education is critical and New Heights does it flawlessly. Specifically, the leader Pamela has got to be the hardest working Executive Director I have ever volunteered for. Not only is she tireless in her efforts, but supremely dedicated to her cause and the people it helps. I am proud to be a part of this organization as a volunteer.

I have been blessed to be a part of New Heights. New Heights has given my daughter the opportunity to graduate a year earlier than a regular school and has helped my daughter to learn -- not just have papers or tests thrown at her. This group makes you feel like family. I wish everyone would know about this group. New Heights has helped so many people, and I know it will help so many more in the future. I want to personally thank you for all your help, and I would recommend New Heights to everyone.

New Heights Education

This essay is going to pertain the experience that I had with New Heights Educational Group.
Before I had started out with New Heights, I was in and out of public school and charter schools. I was learning faster than other students and I was unable to go on with class assignments, or further my education on my own. I have been looking at other schools that would be able to extend my education and speed the process up with my graduation. Pamela and I have been friends for quite some time. In 2004 Pamela was my 4-H director and was able to send me on the right track! Pamela had referred me to New Heights Education in Mid-October, after she read my status on Facebook, about my experience with charter schools. I was going into New Heights Education totally blind folded and had no idea what this was going to lead me to.
New Heights Education is a very unique homeschooling program, because it allows a student to work at his or hers own pace to achieve their goals. New Heights base their schooling on “hours”, basically a student is given their subject that they are required by state to take and it is up to the student to complete their “X” amount of hours that was agreed upon to. I set up a meeting to speak with Pamela about the options that New Heights had to offer their students, and I was very impressed with her open library and curriculum that she has available for kids to borrow throughout their school year. Pamela was very understanding when it came to talking about subjects that I was not so good in. I mentioned that I was a little weaker in my math class than I was in my other classes, she arranged a personal tutor for me that I would work with a few time a week, which was helpful. The enrollment process was very fast and easy to understand, I was able to work in my assignments within a week or two. I would keep in touch and email Pamela at the end of each week and tell her what I had accomplished that week. I was able to take all of my classes that I was taking in my public school, which was such a help! I was doing at least 20-25 hours of school work every week and letting Pamela know when I had completed a course.
Pamela has helped me in a very tremendous way; I was able to achieve my goal and graduate a year early nearly making a 3.5 GPA the whole way through. Pamela was always an email a way and was very positive and done her best with questions and concerns. What I had experienced with New Heights Educational Group will forever be an amazing memory, and I thank Pamela for sharing her home school with me, it truly had a positive impact on my life and I’m glad that I took this wonderful opportunity in my life.

I have been volunteering with this group for the last 3 years. This group is dedicated to everyone from a child to and adult regardless of their ability to pay. Even when the public school systems have written them off , the success that NHEG has obtained with the same student is remarkable! A student who was having difficulty reading at their current grade level, now reads at a level 2 grades above. Just a remarkable group of volunteers.

I have had the amazing opportunity to help Pamela and the New Heights Educational Group as a graphic designer. This group is so motivated to help others and I loved working with them! Everyone was so nice and it was the best volunteer opportunity I have had!

I have been working with Pamela and NHEG since the summer of 2014 as a proofreader. Even from the first few pages I read, it was clear what Pamela and her group stand for: education, support, and equal resources for all. Homeschooling and other non-mainstream schooling tends to get ignored in a lot of discussion about education, but Pamela and NHEG are doing everything they can to offer a great support system for the children and educators who might otherwise get left behind.

I enjoy volunteering at New Heights Educational Group, knowing that I am empowering students and their parents. Educational is one of the most essential virtues in life and the organization works to promote different topics of learning. It is great to work with Pamela, and her instructions are always clear and the scheduling is flexible. I have done my first show last Sunday and enjoyed every minute of it, knowing that viewers are learning new information and topics. I cannot wait to continue volunteering at New Heights and further inspiring people the importance of education! :)

It's satisfying being a part of an organization that provides many resources to private, charter, and public students.
I've been working with Pamela since Oct. of 2013, and find the opportunity very rewarding. The history talk radio podcasts give more information on history than many people have heard. Doing research on the history segments helps me appreciate the wonderful republic, and the people that risked their lives, so future generations could live lives free of oppression.
