New Glasgow Academy is a state of the art P-8 facility in New Glasgow which opened in September 2014. NGA welcomes students form Acadia Street, Temperance Street, New Glasgow Junior High and our new grade 7 students arriving from A.G. Baillie. Our new school has many highlights we are very proud of. The artistic characteristics include a 19 foot totem pole depicting the history of the feeder schools, the strong athletic and musical reputation of New Glasgow schools celebrating the magnitude of the cultures we embrace. A colourful glass tile mosaic encompasses our town, our culture, our beliefs. In addition, each child entering NGA has completed an individual tile that is displayed throughout the school.
Our enhanced gymnasium with bleacher seating for 200 will allow our athletic program to continue to flourish. The outside of the gymnasium’s mural highlights the East River, The Sampson Trail, The New Glasgow Flourish symbol and the history of ship building in our town.
Outside the gymnasium is the first ever natural playground honouring the Children’s Aid Society of Pictou County. With the legacy fund, we have been able to provide a safe, interactive, play based area for the children of Pictou County.
