About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system.

New Heights School, Inc. Reviews
Amazing! Seriously consider this school.
I have adopted a number of kids and have biological children as well. Many of my adopted kids had special needs, and at one point in time we had kids at 5 different educational settings to meet all of their many needs. Still we were disappointed and the kids hated school. Then, New Heights. Amazing. We were able to move all of our kids to this school. If our kids had a need that they were unaccustomed to serving, they learned to serve it. They gave continuing ed credits to all teachers through the whole school and encouraged everyone to know, intimately, how to care for each of our kids. High school teachers became so in tune with my son's mental health disorder that they took note of his personal hygiene slip before he had problems and warned ME. I knew it, but what a wonderful shock to have the social studies teacher catch you in the bus line to tell you that your 9th grader isn't wearing socks today AND to have figured out what that means... Some rough days are coming. They are committed and attentive. They think outside the box and solve problems. The class sizes are small and,until recently, they were not ruled by political correctness (though this,sadly has started creeping in... the actual good of the child rather than what looks good is a fabulous thing). Everyone does not get a trophy- yeah! They are my favorite. Better yet all of my kids were happy and learning. Test scores that were stagnant at other schools started rising. IEP goals started being met. Small class sizes and individual attention meant that we actually got someplace besides moved to the back of the room or shuttled off to another class. The teachers are great. They work so hard. Love them!
They have no education with Autism Spectrum. Very Sad and disappointed.
