The New Dimensions School


The New Dimensions School is a high-performing public charter elementary school serving grades K-8 in Morganton, North Carolina. As the sole school in the district, it has consistently delivered strong academic results, particularly in the lower grade levels, and has been ranked among the top elementary schools in the state.

Academically, The New Dimensions School stands out with students scoring above the state average in mathematics, reading, and science on the End-of-Grade (EOG) assessments. For example, in the 2022-2023 school year, 68.3% of 3rd-grade students were proficient or better in mathematics, compared to the state average of 61.1%. The school has also been ranked 364 out of 1,502 North Carolina elementary schools, earning a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger. However, the school's performance in 8th-grade mathematics (25% proficient or better) is significantly lower than the state average (44.8%), which could be an area for improvement.

In terms of diversity, The New Dimensions School has a majority white student population (89.91%) but also notable percentages of African American (3.55%), Hispanic (2.24%), Asian (0.75%), and students of two or more races (3.55%). This diversity could be a strength for the school, but the declining statewide ranking from 103 out of 1,489 in 2020-2021 to 364 out of 1,502 in 2022-2023 suggests that the school may need to address certain areas to maintain its high performance and continue to serve its diverse student population effectively.
