I was a student there from 5th grade until I graduated. I went to the local Junior high for less than 2 weeks (to please my dad). Hated every minute of it! The traditional school setting just wasn't f...or me but I flourished at New Heights! I'd recommend this school to everyone! If I lived in the area I would even send my child there. Great school... great memories!! See More

I attended new heights from 1993 to 1995 when I graduated. I was a high school drop out until new hights came along. The best thing I ever did was go to the open house with my mom, sister and niece to... meet some of the educators. I extremely enjoyed Mr. Stowmans woodshop class, Mr. Fitzpatrick's English lit class and Mr. Bucks math class. I really felt that the teachers and the rest of the saff truly cared for the sudents.

New Heights is not only a place for students to flourish, but teachers can excel as well. Teachers are provided leadership opportunities inherently by serving in many cases as department heads. As t...he sole secondary language arts teacher, the instructor is responsible for meeting all of the language arts needs for students in grades 6-12. Teachers learn to manage time and resources in a way that just isn't likely in a larger, more traditional district. Teachers also have the ability to form long-lasting relationships with their students, as they will be scheduled with one another term after term, and year after year. It is a great place to teach and make a difference in students' lives! See More

I taught math here for just one year. Leaving was one of the harder decisions I've made and just as hard to look back on. This school provides teachers and students an opportunity to connect through e...ducation and experience success together in a way that a more traditional setting doesn't typically allow. See More

Do kids really need parents to enforce screen time limits? Or will they regulate themselves if given the opportunity? What do you think your kids would do?

See how one family's experiment turned out.

Every parent complains about the battle: Being the screen police with their kids. So what if you let kids self-limit their use, no rules. One family tried it out.
