New River is, for sure, a well kept secret. Our grandson feels safe and happy here. Over his 3 years here he has developed many friendships.
New River is the best kept secret in the district. The teachers and staff members all work together to meet the needs of the WHOLE child. Students know the staff and the staff members know the students. The students have caring adults surrounding them all day long. A positive relationship between the educators and the students is a must for a successful experience in school. There is no doubt that the New River staff cares about each child while creating a very exciting learning environment where they can meet with success.
We have recently moved to New River and we are impressed with New River Elementary. The atmosphere/culture of this school is wonderfully positive. There is a terrific effort which is focused upon each student succeeding. Our daughter is quite shy and was very nervous her first day of school. Her teacher was incredibly sensitive and our daughter responded immediately to her kindness. Our daughter is thriving in her academics and socially. In the past, at our previous school, our daughter was simply bumped up a grade if the academics were too easy for her. This was a concern to us because she is young for her grade to begin with and socially it was difficult for her. Her teacher has tapped into her passion, writing, and is keeping her engaged with creative writing exercises. Our girl loves it! There are many opportunities such as band, art, music class, reading club, chess club and others. We are thankful for New River elementary! It is fun to watch our daughter grow in her excitement of learning.
My daughter transferred to New River school this year. The teachers and other staff have been nothing but friendly, professional, thorough, caring, and effective. I am very impressed with the education my daughter is receiving at New River. She has some special needs and I believe she will absolutely flourish at this school.
