Special note to prospective parents
Dear prospective parents,
The New Victorian School has been in existence since 1991. It offers excellent programs in both English and French. Since 2003, all of the French students have successfully passed the Certificat/6me Ann�e Fondamentale. English students who have transferred to the American schools have successfully entered into regular academic programs as opposed to the special program for foreign students namely: English for speakers of other languages (ESOL).
The success of TNVS students is due in part to an excellent and a rigorous curriculum; however, the instructors, administrators, and personnel are also highly experienced and competent. In addition, the school has wonderful parents that love and trust TNVS. So please come and join them, and participate in the continued growth and success of The New Victorian School.
The mission of The New Victorian School is to work collaboratively with parents in order to provide a well rounded academic, religious, social and cultural education in French and in English to all its students by creating an ideal environment for their physical, spiritual, social and psychological development. In The New Victorian School, we put the well-being and the success of our children first.

The French Academic Program is composed of préscolaire, primaire and beginning September 2015, secondaire. It follows the Haiti Minister of Education's curriculum and part of the French curriculum from France. The students receive a report card at the end of the year with only the French subjects.

Visual and Performing Arts,
The New Victorian School has a string orchestra where students learn violin, viola, cello, and double bass. As we have more musical instruments available, we will add the wind and the percussion section which will allow us to have a full symphony orchestra. TNVS also has classes in music theory and music appreciation as well as a children choir. In addition, TNVS also has a dance division where the students learn the various Spanish dances such as chachacha, rumba, salsa, as well as classical ballet and Haitian folkloric dance.
Afterschool Program & Computer,
In order to enhance the scholastic achievements of TNVS students, we have started an after school program which takes place from Monday to Thursday, 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The purpose of this program is to provide homework assistance, bring greater clarification and understanding if need be of lessons presented to them in class, help them with test preparation, as well as supervise them while studying their daily lessons. For the 2014-2015 school year, this program will take place from October 6, 2014, till May 31, 2015. The students will obtain a small snack every day at 3:00 p.m.
Beginning September 2014, TNVS will begin once again its technology division which was interrupted by the January 2010 earthquake when all the computers were destroyed. In this program, students from 5th grade and up will learn typing, Microsoft Windows 2010, MS Word 2010, MS Excel 2010, the use of the internet, and introduction to social media such as Facebook.
