Leadership is positive and many growth activities are offered outside of the regular curriculum such as archery, cooking club, zumba club and many others. Math and Science are emphasized and every student is given every opportunity to succeed!

My son attended this school while transitioning with the military. We moved from the San Diego school district which is horrible! He progressed leaps and bounds in the few short months he was there. I could not be happier with the teachers dedication to the students. His teacher, Mrs. Wendy, did an outstanding ...  Read more

My daughter just finished kindergarten at NMS and we absolutely loved the school and the teachers.

New Market fell short of my expectations. It is an average school, but I think there are better schools out there. I do like the small student body, the principles involvement, and the small class sizes. I think they could work on curriculum and additional training to teach the teachers how to accommodate ...  Read more

I have three children who attend New Market school and we love it. The teachers, staff and Principal make it a point to know every student and parent by name. New Market school just recently won the Blue Ribbon Award and is one of the best schools around.

We are parents of three children who have been at New Market School. Two of which are now 'graduates', but one is still there. I must say that I am not sure how many times other than the open house that the parent below has been to the school, but Dr. Minsky is doing a fabulous job. We are very involved, ...  Read more

As a parent I have noticed many changes at this school since it has a new principal. In the past I have always felt that my children were safe because Mr. Evans had a firm grasp on everything going on there. Under this administration I can't say the same. From the first open house to open a new school ...  Read more
