For Students & Parents 2023-2024


Para estudiantes y padres 2023-2024


Peer Group Connection (PGC) for Middle Schools is a research-based program that supports and eases students’ anxiety about making the transition from elementary to middle school. The program taps into the power of eighth graders to create a nurturing environment for incoming middle school students. Once per week, pairs of eighth graders meet with groups of 8-10 incoming middle school students in outreach sessions designed to strengthen relationships among students across grades.

(PGC) has supported the social development of both eighth-grade peer leaders and the sixth-grade students who participate in outreaches. To date, PGC students have conducted seven outreaches, providing a critical bridge between our oldest and our youngest students.

NMBAA’s PBIS system is in place to teach and reinforce positive behavior for all students. Our system has two pillars: points that students earn in every class for positive behavior that are tracked by the teacher and lead to invitations to monthly celebrations and events, and Bronx Bucks that staff give to students for immediate recognition of positive behavior. This year, we launched our first School Store that was open to students to redeem their Bronx Bucks for prizes. Rotating teams from our 22 student staff operated and ran the school store every day.

Student Ambassadors

Student Ambassadors are a select group of 7th and 8th-grade leaders who support school-based programs and events. Student Ambassadors assist with open houses for prospective 6th graders, serve as panelists to discuss their experiences at school for groups such as the Panel for Education Policy, and support monthly Community School Team meetings. 

Mentor Program

New Millennium offers a group mentoring program for students to provide students with access to a mentor through weekly meetings. This program supports students who have been struggling with academics and/or attendance as indicated through the reception of promotion in doubt status, New Visions attendance data, and staff and administrator referrals. Mentors work together with our young people to provide consistency, accountability, motivation, and whatever else is needed to help them do their best for the rest of the school year and beyond.
