My experience at NEW Lutheran had its good and lesser points. There was a tendency to overemphasis of chapels and conservative Lutheranism in general instead of rigorous STEM classes. There could also be stronger efforts in a strong liberal arts (classical education) base in growing the variety of electives like the CAD class and finance. Many Teachers were excellent and impartial, aided by small class sizes, creating a positive community for learning. I will agree with others that sports took a much greater focus than the fine arts. Unfortunately, as great as the extremely small size was it provided little diversity and inherent cliquishness.
