    My daughter is in kindergarten there and the principal there is a awesome and caring woman in which she went out of her way to offer help tob my child and our family. My child currently had to live my father for a couple months due to family issues and she offered if my father couldnt take care of her she offered from her kind hearted nature to take care of my baby til my issues were resolved. I will always thank God my baby is in the hands of such caring people. That trait in a person you cant hardly find anymore... Thank you Ms.Cure and Ms Forgety for all that you do and I do work hard with my daughter at home the job isnt all on the teachers we as parents have to continue working together with the teachers to give our children the education they need to fulfill there dreams and goals in life...... Good job New Market Elementary School

    There are a few very good teachers at this school but the curriculum ties them down. We have to supplement our children's education at home in order to keep them current with the rest of the US in studies for their grade level. the female principle seems to act like a know it all and never believes the children she always sides with the teachers even when they are in the wrong.

    I like New Market very much. My son has been a student there for 4 years. I am very happy with the education he is receiving. I think Miss Ada (The Afterschool Program Director) is a very nice lady. My son thinks she is great and he has alot of fun. I am involved in his education and attend every school party and field trip and I know many other parents who are also involved. I have always felt welcolmed by his teachers and other school faculty and staff. I will be sending my daughter to school in 2 more years and I am very happy she will be attending New Market.

    New Market had the most caring faculty and staff I have ever seen at a school. Parents sometimes complained about the principal because he was old fashioned but he turned many students around. He was not afraid to discipline them when they needed it. It was obvious the parents who complained were falling short in their duties at home in raising respectful and caring children. Most parents were happy to have their child in a school that emphasized learning and good citizenship. Yes the principal is gone now and the the place is bedlam. Not a good learning environment. The new principal is trying to win a popularity contest with the parents. If only parents could realize children need love and loving discipline. New Market had that for many years.

    The principal is very old and outdated. He will not allow a PTA. He wants to run it all and parents have no say so. The after-school daycare is awful and the lady that runs it is mean to the kids and doesn't let them have fun. My kids had to be in it for a few years because there was nowhere else to go and we had no relatives in the area that could help us by watching them after school. Now there are Boys & Girls Clubs around that are great! Sign up quick. Everyone can't wait to get out of the school daycare. The principal needs to retire many years ago. New updated ideas need to happen to progress the education and well being of the kids. Also there is plenty of money for a decent playground but the principal is fighting that too.

    New Market is a wonderful small town school. My daughter has learned so much from awesome teachers. Most everyone in the school really seems to care about the kids and learning. One issue though I think it's past time to get a new principal. At one time I am sure he did a great job but now it is time to go. His morning 'speeches' to the kids are extremely bored and go on deaf ear as I have heard described. As for the teachers all the ones that we have been exposed to in the last few years have been extremely caring educated and concerned about all the children. More parents would be involved if they weren't intimidated by the principle's hateful and rude demeanor.
