Experience Is Golden!

It is amazing to think that our 50+ teachers have 1,000 years of combined experience, and over 600 of them have been at New Vistas! Our talented and dedicated office and support staff provide additional invaluable experience.

We have an extremely low staff turnover, which speaks not only to the academic expertise of our teachers, but to the fact that we are a 'family of educators', whose goal is to join with your family to create an ongoing program of excellence for your child.
