Nea is fortunate to have a Counseling Staff with a wide range of experience, including academic, college and social-emotional counseling--a remarkable offering for a school our size.
At Nea, we believe in the potential of every learner and we are dedicated to each child's journey of self-discovery. Our small school environment and innovative educational model nurtures children with disabilities as full members of the community.
English Language Development
Nea's English Language Development Program combines in-class support with small group "pull-out" learning. The ELD Program works closely with all core subject facilitators to provide English instruction and support our English learners.
