Where New Visions Come to Life
Most kids have a vision of what they want to be when they grow up, be it a dancer, singer, actor, or doctor. While they may be a bit young to decide their future when they walk through our doors, New Vision Charter School creates a learning environment where all kids' visions, hopes, dreams, and aspirations can come true. We are a K-8 public charter school in Loveland, Colorado that focuses on individualized learning for every student, every day.
Challenge, encourage, and empower students every day to persevere on their journey to be lifelong learners.
NVCS is a public school of choice committed to transforming talents to strengths, ideas to actions, and beliefs to character through a creative and challenging learning environment.
In early February of 2004, a group of parents living in the Loveland, Colorado area began casual conversations about starting a charter school in the Thompson School District (TSD). Those initial conversations soon grew into a grass-roots effort to make a K-8 charter school a reality for students in the Loveland/Berthoud area by Fall 2005. The group proposed a new school called New Vision Charter School (NVCS). We are committed to creating and sustaining a school that promotes academic excellence and sets high standards for the personal growth of all its students.
New Vision Charter School recognizes that children learn best in an environment in which they feel safe, in which their differences are respected, and in which they are held to high expectations for success. We believe that children thrive in fair, structured, and disciplined surroundings and that such surroundings can promote the development of values and character. NVCS believes parents want to know their children are safe when they are in school and that they will be treated with respect. We recognize that parents expect their children to learn while in school and to emerge from their educational experience with the knowledge necessary for continued success once they leave NVCS. We encourage and expect parents to be active participants in their child’s education and welcome their input and involvement.
NVCS is committed to maximizing learning and believes that small class size is a crucial part of educational success. There will be approximately 22 students in each kindergarten class, 27 in grades 1-8. It is the goal of NVCS to maintain these class sizes. To further expand learning opportunities, NVCS will operate on a longer school day than other Thompson District schools. The day will begin at 7:50 a.m. and end at 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Since our start, we have been recognized for many achievements both academically and athletically. New Vision takes pride in breaking from tradition in order to do what is best for our students. We bring a new vision to education that has proven benefits for our students.
