My son has been attending The NewGate-Field School for the last three years. I can't say enough about the quality of the education he's received. The schools commitment to helping each child reach their own potential is truly commendable. Montessori's focus on self-control and self-respect make for a ...  Read more

There are so many wonderful aspects of New Gate School that it is hard to sum up in a few short words. My child has been attending New Gate since 2003. The teachers, staff and community are amazing.

We have two children who have attended New Gate School since they were 2 and 3 years old. They are now in upper elementary classes and my son is looking forward to joining the First Cycle (7th grade) class in the fall. The sense of community from teachers, administration and families is wonderful. ...  Read more
