New Generation School Ratings & Reviews
I must say that I'm glad New Gen is not held to the COMMON CORE standards that the public school are. The ITBS is a nation-wide test that New Gen gives to my child 3 times a year to compare my child's academic progress against other students across the country. To me, knowing how my kid is doing compared to other kids across the country IS holding New Gen accountable to standards. This school also had an accreditation agency visiting the school this year and even the parents were interviewed by this agency, so again, I am seeing standards. When the time comes for my child to take the ACT, I am thankful my child will be working with his teachers, at no additional charge (I was assured) to prepare him, rather than having to pay a tutor, or worse, having him get lost in the public school system! Not sure what that other parent was talking about because I have already seen another family member's transcript, complete with actual credits, and yes, this is a standard high school diploma, no problems getting into college. This family member even had the option to dual enroll through Florida Gateway College while attending New Gen. This school is God-sent!
Awful communication, went there to sign my child up for school and was given the run around for 2weeks. I was told I was 1st on the waiting list then 2nd, then I was informed after calling 4times that the classes were full and my sons application was disregarded. They lied about not receiving records that his school faxed over 4 times. Awful,experience and a complete waste of time.
My child "graduated" from New Generation and went to school there a number of years. I believe many of the staff have their heart in the right place, it should be about the children, first and foremost. Unfortunately, I know that my child did not graduate with the necessary skills to attend college immediately or go out into the workforce. He was well below the "passing score" for the ACT, thus, I have to hire a tutor to help him make enough gains so he wont have to take 2 years worth of remedial classes in a college setting. Further, the school got public funding for him from the McKay scholarship, but they are not held accountable to the state for student achievement like the public schools. If I had known all of this in advance, he would have been in a public school, but because I didn't realize this until his "Junior" year, the high school couldn't transfer his credits. New Generation doesn't have credits to graduate, just pass your classes (he was a straight A student there and knowing what I know now, that seems circumspect!) and pass the Iowa Basic Skills test, and BINGO, you too will have a piece of paper that says you are eligible to receive a diploma.
New Generation School has been a blessing for my two boys, ages 14 and 10. They were both failing in the public school system, and had been pretty much written off. In one year, they both advance more than two years overall in their education and are both back on track to graduate with a high school diploma!!! We love this school!
I cannot tell you enough great things about this school!!! My son struggled in school constantly. He had a reading comprehension problem which affected all subjects! Needless to say, he hated school! I found New Gen and loved their strategy on catching children up to grade level, so I signed my son up for 7th grade. Before he started, they tested him in every subject. In most areas, he tested at a third grade level, so they started him exactly where his knowledge was at in each subject. They worked one on one with him. If he got stuck, they would go back over the material until he understood. They would say, there is no point in moving forward if he doesn't understand what he is doing now. I agree!! So, my son is now starting his senior year, and I am very proud to say he is testing at grade level in most subjects except for where he is testing above grade level!!!! My son is looking into dual enrollment this year! That would have never been a possibility if it weren't for this school!! I cannot thank them enough!!!! So, do I recommend this school for your child??? You better believe it!!!! Thank you New Gen!!!!! My son and I will always be grateful!!! VW and JM
