In the past 3 years I have witnessed firsthand the change that takes place within students who go through our Transition program. These students leave New Vista with a greater sense of confidence after having been given the opportunity to work in a real business and gain experiences in multiple community environments. With the proper training, attitude, and a little patience, these young adults can achieve any goals they set their mind to.
Our experience at New Vista has been night and day from our previous experience in the school district public system! Teachers in the public system repeatedly said our son was unable to read and comprehend third grade books. At New Vista, our son has read 33 books in the last 4.5 months - 82% of them at a grade level of 4.6. Sincere thanks to the whole NV Staff for your dedication and commitment in helping these kids do better in life.
Our daughter started New Vista in 7th grade with the plan that she would only stay there for her middle school years. We were so happy with her progress, that now, 5 years later, she is about to graduate. Thanks to the New Vista teachers and staff, she has blossomed socially and academically, and she has been able to participate in high school activities we never thought possible. The options after graduation are now wide open for her....
I can give you a story of my son's journey but this quote basically sums it up. "You transformed an impossible child into an adult with possibilities". Regarding plans after Noah graduates... NV's adult program. I'm excited to be participating at ground level with other senior parents and Ms. Donnelly. Thank you!
