For Families

NCS Mission Statement

At New Century School we provide a nurturing environment and are committed to the success of every student.  Students, teachers, and families form a partnership for learning.  We strive for all students to discover joy, beauty, wonder, and greatness within our natural environment, as well as within themselves and others.  We help all students grow in their abilities to think critically, solve problems, communicate, use technology, and be globally competent through high engagement in integrated curricular lessons, including a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.  We value the uniqueness of each student.  We empower all students to be active participants in their own learning through student inquiry and personalized learning opportunities.

New Century School Parent Support

New Century School strongly encourages parent involvement. Opportunities to help are always available. Parents are needed to serve on the school’s Governing Board as well as standing committees for finance and marketing/community outreach. Parents are also encouraged to get involved in various aspects of the school’s operation, including but not limited to supporting class activities and outdoor discovery experiences, assisting with grant writing and fundraising activities, organizing diversity learning events, coordinating school wide social functions and helping teaching staff with everyday classroom tasks and special projects.


We have several resources at New Century School to keep you informed about what is happening in our school community:

NCS has a Request for Excused Absence for Family Vacation Form for you to complete PRIOR to your vacation of your student will miss 3 or more days of school.  Please click on the link to print it or you can ask for a paper copy from the NCS office.  Then, please complete the form and bring or send it into the NCS office at least one week prior to your vacation so that your student’s teachers can be preparing work to send home with your student to complete while on vacation. 

Our Governance Council meets the second Tuesday of each month to serve and make decisions on behalf of our school community.  Our monthly newsletters and Governance Council Minutes will also help to keep you informed:
