It's been a long time since I went to New Center, but the whole experience was pretty good. The one thing (as another reviewer said) was there aren't a lot of male teachers.

New Center has been great for my child. As for politics, show me a place that's not political. My daughter had a wonderful kindergarten teacher, not so great first grade (she was a yeller) and so far 2nd grade she has loved. The principal, Nancy Simms is top notch. She taught my husband 20 years ago ...  Read more
