• Our children stand between the past and the future. Schools must reflect the wisdom of yesterday and the promise of tomorrow. New City Elementary School values tradition, yet we are always changing, always growing.  Our goal is to develop self-directed, independent, secure and responsible children who will have a love for learning, a curiosity of the world around them, and the ability to find solutions to questions so that they can grow socially, emotionally and intellectually to their full potential. At New City Elementary School we commit minds to inquiry, hearts to compassion and lives to the service of humankind.
