My child is a kindergartner at New City and loves the school and her teacher! She comes home bursting with new ideas and information (how a starfish walks, what readers do, how she and her math partner solved a problem). The constructivist pedagogical model that the school's curriculum is based on is ...  Read more

I love this school and my daughter does too. She has been going there since kinder and is now a 4th grader. I could not ask for a better more caring school than New City. The kids, the parents, the staff and all the teachers really make us all one family. We all look out for each other and are a great ...  Read more

New City school used to be a great place. There are some great teachers like Armando but many of the great ones, like claudia, jose, and brenda have left. Since closing the pine campus New City school has really gone downhill. Safety is a big concern and having classrooms in a big open space creates ...  Read more

Both my children go to the Pine Ave. campus of New City PS and we have been very happy with this forward thinking school. The K-2 and 3-5 multi age classrooms create a wonderful sense of community and caring among the students. Both boys are excelling in math and LOVE the music, art and science program ...  Read more

We LOVE this school. We have a 5th grader, a 1st grader, and our youngest will start Kindergarten in the fall. This is a bilingual program- our 5th grader is fluent in Spanish and English, and our 1st grader already understands almost all the Spanish she hears, and can speak quite a bit. The teachers ...  Read more

My daughter is a 2nd grader at New City and she loves it. My husband and I chose the school for the bilingual program but the school offers so much more than just the Spanish program. My daughter is learning to be engaged in her community, learning about other cultures, to be a critical thinker and ...  Read more

This is a great school! You can tell by how many teachers send their kids here! I have even seen families leave this school only to come back.

My 11 year old left New City to head off to a large non-bilingual middle school after 5 years there. Initially I was concerned that she was going to have a difficult transition but I can now say that New City prepared her well for her future. She is reading above grade level, doing honor's level math ...  Read more

My son goes to new city and it seems like hes being taught second grade material. Is this what its coming to? I dislike this very much. No wonder the district wants to close it.

Long Beach Unified School District
* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
