New Century is a place where kids can feel free to be themselves. We have a small school population and most kids who come here are very intelligent and fun people to be with. I have never seen New Century students fight before, making our school a very safe and comfortable environment. You can choose between learning about programming, cyber, biomedical, aerospace engineering, and electrical engineering at New Century. Our school is made to prepare kids for their future careers, and we are offered that though college level "strand-based" courses at the high school level. Our strands include computer science, engineering, and biomedical. Kids are required to take two of their strand classes per year. This school is excellent when it comes to college prep, and I'm glad to be a New Century Falcon!

My experience here at NCTHS has been very rewarding! I have been introduced to courses that have been such a catalyst to my interest in STEM careers. Not only have I been able to takes classes that focus on my career interest, but the overall aura retains that of challenging work, motivation, and college preparation. Go Falcons!
New Century has been my home for the past 4 years. I've been challenged every year with difficult classes, but it all pays off in the end. As a entering freshman, you much choose between the three strands: engineering, computer science, and medical. I've taken 8 medical classes including but not limited to bio chemistry, internship, medical foundations, and medical terminology. As a student here, I've had so many opportunities for internships and learning opportunities in my area of study. Our school is small, with around 400 kids enrolled. I would love to see our school grow enough to get our own building one day, where we can thrive as a community.
