Nea Community Learning Center Reviews
Nea gave me everything it could to have me prepared for college, but it wasn't spoon-fed at all. It revolves around teamwork and project-based assignments yes, but if you want to succeed to the best of your ability then it's all on you. You have to be in charge of signing yourself up for community college classes if you want to boost up your gpa and look impressive on your college apps, I liked this because it pushed me to be more responsible and diligent because it was my future at stake. I think I'm making this sound way more dramatic then it really is because there will always be people willing to help you, you just have to ask. Whether it's your history facilitator, your PE coach, or an administrator you say hello to in the halls, they are ready to support you as soon as you inform them of what's wrong and it is amazing! No two people are the same at Nea, but we all just fit and I couldn't imagine myself going anywhere else.
I love NEA for their teachers. They are passionate about their learners. They really pay attention to their needs. They communicate consistently and are always available to answer any of our questions. Their teachers are so thoughtful about what they teach their learners and how they are taught. There is so much care and it shows. I love the administrators and front office personnel. They are always so friendly, and the lower village lead facilitator (Ms. Jana) always greets every student in the morning, helps them out of the car and shows she cares. Such a friendly atmosphere. I feel the school’s core philosophy and principles are so spot on. Things like Courage, Accountability, Integrity, Persistence, Problem Solving, are principles I use every day. In conclusion, I love how this school is run, the parent involvement (which is amazing), the diversity, the facilities, the faculty, I can go on. Highly Recommend…you won’t be disappointed.
There are a lots of ups and downs. Starting with the pros, it's a very small community, the 6-12 grades only include about 250 people, this means you really get to know everyone and the teachers are more able to work with individual students who may need extra help. It's a different style of education, it's project based and more hands on, personally I really liked it, but it doesn't work for everyone. The school is also very focused on the students and students help plan and run many events. Some cons include that the school is quite unorganized at times, and has a tendency to not communicate with students or theif families very well (there have been times where I found out events were happening the day before they happened). Overall I would say it's not a bad school, but it's not somewhere you go if you want a traditional style high-school.
