NEW Academy Canoga Park is a K-5 independent charter school, which emphasizes art and science. One of the school’s four core values, Doing Extra Makes a Difference, is seen throughout the year through efforts of the teachers and the parents to create a more meaningful experience for all Dolphins. Teachers go out of their way to assist students and have created optional clubs to add an extra layer of fun to NACP. Clubs include Run Club, Yoga Club, Violin Club, Chess Club, the Dancing Dolphins Club, Drama Club, Fourth and Fifth Grade Reading Club, and Photography Club. A resource service provider, speech therapist, and occupational therapist collaborate with teachers and provide services to students who qualify. Parents attend parent meetings and other school events such as the annual Talent Show and the annual Oratorical Event sponsored by the West Hills Optimist Club.

Since opening in 2005, NACP has won the Fit and Fun 5K Challenge sponsored by Assembly member Lloyd Levine by having the highest number of students, staff, and parents participate of all schools involved. Winning this annual event each year has garnered additional funds to use towards physical education. The healthy food consistently served in the cafeteria fittingly compliments the attention to the importance of fitness. Semi-annual Project Based Learning celebrations bring parents, students, and community members to NACP to tour classrooms and see PBL projects that show thematic teaching interweaving state standards in an exciting manner. These efforts were fundamental to the increases in test scores. API results improved from 639 during the 2005/2006 school year to 734 during the 2008/2009 school year.

NACP students continue to soar in 2012!

Our 2012 API score was 829! Great job NEW Academy students!
