    This is an excellent school! I have three children one has gone from K through 5 in New Prospect the other two will finish soon. The teachers are excellent continuing their education and staying on top of news and methods. The administration is caring and proactive one of my children has had discipline issues and they've worked with us to fix the issue and not just suspend or punish. There are a variety of extra and intra curricular activities that challenge the students and reward for exceptional performance and/ or behavior. I am very pleased with the education that my children are receiving at this school.
