New Way is a school for kids with learning differences. My daughter began attending in the 5th grade after becoming increasingly marginalized, being provided decreasing services [in progressively larger classes] and being bullied more frequently in a public school. New Way was a God-send. It saved my daughter from a life of disappointment and no self-esteem.

New Way accomplishes miracles like ours by providing individualized educational programs for each child. The class sizes are small and the teachers are beyond exceptional. We have watched our daughter achieve near grade level performance in all subjects -and she continues to improve. Equally important, she has blossomed into a confident young lady.

New Way is also unique because it is an accredited school providing services from kindergarten through 12th grade. It has also recently added a post graduation program to assist students in the transition to college or other career paths.

My daughter will proudly graduate from New Way in a few years. I will be forever grateful to New Way for saving my daughter.

Our son was hanging on to the back of a train which just kept moving faster and faster in traditional education. He was a quiet body in the classroom who stayed below the radar and pretty much zoned out in class before we made the decision to move to New Way. The greatest feeling in the world is to see him get out of the car every morning with a smile, looking forward to learning and equally important, looking forward to the interactions with his teachers and his peers.
The staff is amazing. Caring, enthusiastic and professional. We have tried so many extracurricular activities with our son, none of them successful. The staff at New Way has encouraged him and enabled him to excel in the classroom and on the athletic fields. Our son is learning, has pride in himself and is happy. All things that we will never take for granted.

Find a way to enable the school population to grow. With growth they can service more children and could hopefully solicit more support to make the tuition more affordable and/or to offer additional programs.

My grandson has been at New Way Academy for just 6 months after spending years struggling with learning differences at public/charter schools. All of whom didn't either honor the services he needed or didn't know how to teach him, as well, as provide him with a good learning environment in which to thrive. He was struggling both emotionally, socially and academically so badly that he was becoming defiant and getting into trouble both at home and school. He was going into 6th grade and was at 2nd and 3rd grade level in all academic subjects. His self esteem was very low. New Way has given my grandson a new lease on life. They have done this through smaller class room environment, highly educated teachers who are continually educated in latest knowledge, multi-sensory teaching, social and life skill learning and the passion and commitment to helping these him unlock his potential. He now is doing his homework on his own and more independently, more organized with strategies provided and feel so much better about himself. He is excited about learning and attending school, even when he has a break! Words could not express how lifechanging this has been not only for our grandson but for our whole family. As grandparents raising our grandson, it was already challenging. New Way gave us back our lives too, as we struggled so long to try and help our grandson so many years. The staff at New Way are so committed and passionate about the success of these individuals that it just holds me in awe everyday! And the best part is they keep developing more programs/transition strategies for these children. For instance, they now have K-12 and a transition program called Bridgeway Transistions to aid graduates into transitions that occur in going to college or other endeavors. I was relieved to know that our grandson will have even more help as he progresses. So in a nutshell, New Way has been our Blessing!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in the individualized attention and detail to my grandson's IEP and needs based on past and current levels. The communication level between staff, teachers has been so great! It has been a great family environment and feels like we have a second family in so many ways. In volunteering, the level of professionalism I have witnessed, is nothing less than a high level of excellence in everything from teaching to individual student/family needs.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I don't think that I would make changes to it necessarily. I think that I would just like to get the word out to more parents/grandparents about this academy so that more students can be reached. I would, however, like to see them grow in development/fund-raising so that more students who could never afford a private school be able to have the opportunity through scholarships.
