New World Educational Center opened their virtual charter school in 1999 for students in kindergarten through 12th grades that helps prepare students for achieving their goals and become productive citizens of their communities. Most of the teachers are bilingual which helps students that may not know English to feel more at home in a safe and nurturing environment. Along with core subjects, the school offers extra curricular activities, sports, and student clubs like orchestra, drawing, baseball, physical education classes, track, softball, field hockey, basketball, soccer, football, yearbook, debate, multimedia, and science & technology.
All parents reported a very positive experience with the school. Parents are pleased with the staff, teachers, and curriculum. The environment is safe and caring with teachers that go above and beyond to help each student achieve their goals and succeed in all they do from academics to team sports. The close-knit family oriented school is the main reason parents love the school. Children want to go to school and are learning above their grade level.
Students at the New World Educational Center participated in the state’s AIMS series of exams that measures if students are mastering core subjects. The percentage of 3rd graders was 2% below the state average in reading, 17% below in writing, and average in math. Fourth graders were below state averages in all core subjects. Fifth graders were below state averages in all core subjects with none passing the writing exam. Sixth graders were also below in all subjects. Seventh graders were above average in reading, but were below average in writing and math. Eighth graders were above average in reading and math, but below average in writing and science. Tenth graders were below average in all core subjects.
Looking at percentages of students that passed the AIMS exams in previous years, it looks like the quality of education has decreased as the school was meeting or exceeding the state standards only a couple of years ago. It would be in your best interest to talk with parents and staff to learn what has changed and if the quality of education is improving before enrolling your child.
