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.
Although there are a few things I would change about Nea, I am so thrilled that my kids go there! My kids actually commute on transit over an hour each way to get there, per their choice. Nea is a school that teaches the basic skills needed in every area, including honors classes, by using actual hands on skills. For their 9th grade physics class, the students (or learners as they are called) learned how to do soldering with copper wire and made mini roller coasters for ball bearings that had to go upside down and measure a certain number of inches. For one of the Humanities classes, the students collaborate on writing a well thought out How to Host a Murder type plot for their parents to solve. The teachers do not use FINALS as big scary do well or you will fail tests. Instead, most of the classes have final projects or presentations and each semester students have to do a presentation for their parents and a teacher about what they have learned in the preceding year. Seniors have to do theirs in front of the board of directors for the school. These presentations involve creating a web page with links, pictures, public speaking and answering questions off the cuff - all more important than memorizing facts to forget in 24 hours. I have had kids at this school from third grade up through the middle school and now into the senior year of high school, including utilizing various facets of the special education department. It is a gem! We are lucky to have it in the Bay Area.
