My son is a freshman at New Haven Academy and we both love it. From the day of shadowing a current student last year, Mark had a mutual connection with both some of the students and teachers. We made NHA our 1st and only choice after visiting Hopkins and Hamden Hall. Students stick up for each other
... Read more when one may be mean-spirited to another so teachers don't always have to be involved; there is positive peer pressure for responsible behavior. The Principal teaches Freshman Seminar so he knows 1st hand every student entering the school. There is comprehensive, cohesive and coordinated support of students and their families from the academically challenged to the gifted. Every effort is made to enhance student success. If needed there is resource assistance during the school day and teachers stay after school for tutoring. To address the usual teen angst and/or personal situations, there is great social work coverage which we experienced when my son's grandfather passed away. Definately an A+ school.

Test scores have remained relatively flat there for years - I'd love to see them push themselves to the next level. As far as parent involvement- the school defines how they want you to be involved without asking parents about their gifts or strengths. Read less

When I came to NHA it was just a way to get away from my local high school, but once I was immersed in the culture of the school, I found so much more than an escape. I found a new place to grow and learn. NHA has become both my family, my community and my home. My teachers are competent and keep in

My son is academically challenged in all of his classes. The teachers, support staff and principal are wonderful.

I moved my daughter from a highly rated suburban school district to this school, because although my daughter is an "A" student, our high school was too big, too competitive and she would have been lost in the woodwork. At NHA, she has become her own person, and is finding her voice, thanks to the stellar
