    New Horizon Community Charter is a wonderful school and offers opportunity for growth to all their students and the leadership from Mr. Hollis makes it all the better when I comes to your child education

    THIS SCHOOL HAVE THE MOST UNPROFESSIONAL TEACHERS AND RUDE STAFF MEMBERS THIS SCHOOL IS THE WORST PERIOD

  • (5 years ago)

    Where do I begin...This is one of the worst schools I've ever experienced. The front office staff are extremely rude and unprofessional. My experience with the teachers and administrative staff has also been one that does not give the school an inviting or warm atmosphere. The staff are very inadaquate and mean spirited. They do not show genuine concern for students personal or educational well being. The school is a mockery of the educational system of NJ and has no valuable impact on preparing students to excel and have the necessary foundation to succeed in future learning endeavors. Five thumbs down!!

    This school has vastly improved uhder the helm of Mr. Hollis. I think with just a little more time the school will be a higher on the ladder of great schools. The parents need to get more involved with there childrens education.

    1 the staff isn't too helpful/friendly also the curriculum isn't challenging enough they work off of sheets of paper as homework rather than school homework books.

  • (5 years ago)

    Wow. Where do I start. Please don't get me wrong NHCC has great potential but the staff lack many things. I can carry on and on of the lack of professionalism that NHCC staff just cant seem to maintain. Everyone has there own opinion and may disagree. I have seen teachers yell at the children because the line was'nt to her likings.....2 thumbs down...

    This is a wonderful school. The staff is great

    Academically I feel it is a good school. The kids are taught on the next grade level which is helpful. On a personal note I feel that the teachers can do a much better job with communucation. You should be the type of parent that is involved in the school.

    New Horizon hasn't turned out to be what I expected. The curriculum is better than some public schools. The staff just need to have a we are the best attitude and treat students and families as such. They also need to work harder with children in their weaknesses.
