Hear it from our parents!

I visited New Gate School in 2013 for Lucile and Colin. We wanted to give them one of the greatest education you can find and New gate IS the school for that. Colin came from France with no English, today is speaking more English than French!

Lucile is going to college now! Thanks to New Gate. So if you have any hesitation, please go and meet the entire staff, they are the best.



We actually moved to Sarasota after an interview with Tim Seldin. We wanted to give our daughter Kimberly the opportunity to go to a great Montessori school for a few months. That was 18 Years ago, and we still live in Sarasota, with Kimberly in college and our second daughter Nina at the New Gate High School.

Looking back this was one of our best decisions we have ever made.
