This school has given my grandson what he could not get in public school. Instead of "accommodation," where the the standards were lowered so he could pass, this school is educating him so that he gets the knowledge he was missing in public school. In addition to the excellent, up-to-date teaching programs they have at this school, they assist with the social aspect as well. My grandson is now surrounded by friends and is learning how to interact and develop the social skills that will make him successful as an adult. The best of all, despite the rigors of the curriculum, he is happy and goes to school willingly.

My son struggles with learning difficulties and was not performing well at school. We moved him to New Way where they teach children who learn in unique ways. He is thriving and doing so well in school. He loves going to school every day - And we both love New Way!

This school has changed my son’s life. They address his needs and help him.
At the beginning of the year he could barely read and now he reading entire paragraphs to me. He also has issues with communication and I feel like he has come a long way. People can have actual conversations with him. I can’t express how much this school has helped my son.

New Way is a place where my son feels like he belongs. He never complains about going to school. He is given the opportunity to learn the way that feels right for him. He has been there for four years, and I can't imagine him being anywhere else. He has self confidence, is very self assured, and has a lot of friends. The teachers are amazing - both knowledgeable and compassionate. They are real pros. The staff overall is a dedicated group of hard workers who really care. I finally found a school that understands my child.

There are perhaps a handful of schools like New Way in the entire country, but I daresay none that have the unique ability to serve a diverse population of students so well in so many ways. The teachers are just incredible. The administration and board are selflessly dedicated. My son has many good friends here, is involved in athletics, engaged academically and loves going to school every day. He is living a dream we always had for him-made possible by New Way.

New Way Academy is truly a life saver for our son and our entire family. There is no where else where he and so many other kids who just learn differently could flourish so completely.

Every week I am amazed at how the staff continually fosters his academic and social growth. He willingly does his homework, and support is readily available if needed. He is socially integrated, which is due in no small part to the environment created by the staff.

Every week he tells me how much he enjoys his school. What more could a parent ask for

We moved my son to this school last year. We tried several different schools. Finally at New Way, our son is succeeding at school, and actually enjoys attending! He has even received many awards since his arrival! It's been a game changer for him and our family!

Before we found New Way...we felt completely helpless. Public schools were failing our daughter and she was starting to give up and frankly so were we. We were exhausted from fighting for what our daughter deserved. New Way gave us our lives back. No longer do we have to fight teachers and administrators to get our daughter the help she needs. New way just does it!! When our daughter started in 5th grade she was barely reading at all. Now she is reading and writing and striving in school and it is all because of the caring and educated staff at New Way Learning Academy. There is no better place for you to take your child than New Way!!! They are changing lives everyday!!!!!!

One year ago my son was blessed to first attend New Way Academy, at the age of 13 still struggling to read, and virtually unable to write a complete paragraph my son was not provided the necessary tools with his dyselxia disability to be successful in his education from prior public schools. Within one year time frame New Way Academy has completely taken an overwhelmed teenage boy to the next level in his education! He is learning how to cope with his social anxiety (due to bullying and name calling because of his lack of learning at the public level), and is able to accomplish his daily assignments swiftly and effectively with tools and tricks they have shown him to steer successfully even with his dsylexia. This school has been the answer to all our prayers. There are not enough words to provide in the gratitude we as a family have to New Way in the efforts and dedication they have provided through their faculty and support staff. This is a one of a kind school.

When my son was a first grade student attending a public school, I was informed that he was probably never going to learn to read. He was diagnosed with Dyslexia. He is now in high school and reads at grade level! We owe his success to the dedicated and knowledgable teachers at New Way. New Way understands learning differences and believes that all children can learn. New Way teachers not only work hard to teach all of their children, celebrate their success and support them to be the best that they can be

My daughter has undiagnosed learning disabilities and began attending New Way Academy last fall. My wife and I have been very impressed by New Way's approach to nurturing and teaching our daughter. Our daughter has attended a number of "top" schools for children with learning differences in the Dallas area, but New Way is head and shoulders above anyplace else my daughter has attended for the following reasons.

1. From the beginning, New Way's staff did a thorough job of getting to know my daughter, her abilities, her strengths and her weaknesses.
2. Based on their assessment of my daughter they placed her in classes and with teachers that best fit her needs.
3. The staff has done an excellent job of executing my daughter's individual learning plan.
4. The teachers and administrators provide excellent communication on a regular basis about her progress, big "wins" and any issues they observe.
