Mission & Vision Statement
The mission of the NEW Academy of Science and Arts is to create a child-centered environment where students are able to work cooperatively, become self-directed, think critically, develop self-esteem and self assurance and have respect for cultural diversity. NEW Academy of Science and Arts has three specific performance objectives:
- to promote student progress in academic and artistic achievement, with an emphasis in the arts and sciences,
- to develop social, as well as community ethics and values in the students' character development with parental participation, and
- to implement the most appropriate curriculum for every child after initial assessment.
The vision of NEW Academy of Science and Arts is to create a child centered, creative, safe, healthy environment for children. A place that honors family values and provides a safe environment where children are allowed to fail without fear, and view fear as another opportunity for learning; and gives children exposure to multiple situations in a variety of environments in order that they acquire confidence, self respect and respect for others. The school will be a catalyst for reinforcing positive values in the community; an investment in the community; and a model for innovative learning with an emphasis in the arts and sciences, which teaches every child to be an educated, productive citizen of the world.
