New City School is a wonderful place for our children. Our kids are encouraged to be their 'best self' every day. The Multiple Intelligences method of teaching has made learning fun and effective for our kiddos. New City school not only focuses on academic excellence they focus on teaching kids how to be a good person, too. We have been very happy with New City School!

We love New City. The school does a great job of giving kids a foundation that will help them get in and succeed at any secondary school. Beyond that (and more importantly), I think what I love the most is the emphasis on empathy.

I think what the negative review another person posted is somewhat true of every private independent school. Every private school has its own "box," for lack of a better way to put it. They don't have the resources to meet every child where they are and give them everything they need. Each school has its different target audience where its resources are best deployed, and sometimes a kid might not fit in that exact box. In those cases, the school might not be the right fit. But that said, the same is true for Forsyth, Wilson, Community, etc. I think as parents, we have to make the right decisions for our individual kids.

Bottom line, we couldn't be more pleased with New City.
I used to be a student here and they are amazing, kind of. They truly are diverse and let any student need help. Most the teachers are nice too. They have an amazing idea for the special classes and normal classes. The multiple intelligence thing is a genius idea. However, the food is not very good and you still have to pay a huge amount (we are talking $20,000 here) for being very near a poor area. Also the school has virtually no consequences for those that bully others. I was bullied there and quite frankly I was depressed. I did have one friend, and if your reading this luc thank you. In conclusion, I think that it had an amazing idea but failed to do a good job. -Sage
