    Newark Academy is an amazing school! Everyone is so nice and open and everyone has a group to associate with. The academics give opportunities to people who want to excel past their level and all of the teachers are very friendly and willing to help. Overall, Newark Academy has made me extremely happy as a student and I wouldn't wish to be anywhere else!

    This is an amazing school! The teachers and administration are very involved in both the academic and personal growth of each child. The kids are joyful, well-adjusted, and confident. We are very happy with the quality of the education and the community spirit of NA.
    Fantastic school a parent financially capable of sending their child here would be foolish to not. The school has one of the lowest student to teacher ratios, many extra curricular activities and wonderful staff!
