It is a beautiful school where students feel comfortable. School training programa includes many areas aimed at personal development of the child, including the arts, mathematics, sports, law, etc. Teachers help the students to evaluate their knowledge, participating in these programs. They support and motivate New Utrecht's students to conduct school years for the benefit of themselves, found themselves, and acquire and enhance certainty in the choice of future profession.

this is a great school my child started the N.U.H school and she is very happy. The school is located in a very good area of Brooklyn, she can go by bus or train since bus B8, train D, pass by school area. There is a lot of stores where the student can go buy things. The teacher are very nice. The school has very good coaches that encourage kids to join their teams to keep kids out of trouble. The guards that guard the school are very protected of school and will assist if you asked for help. Thanks to Guard Mr. Cruz who was very helpful to me and my child when she went to get her program and picture ID. I will definitely recommend this school.
