TeamJEMSU, August 12, 2013

web design DenverNew America School empowers new immigrants, English language learners, and academically underserved students with the educational tools and support they need to maximize their potential. It was a privilege to partner with them to improve their site, help increase enrollment to help more students achieve the American dream.

CHALLENGES

  • Appeal to existing and potential students as well as parents, administrators and potential donors.
  • Quickly communicate the mission, benefits and culture of New America School and its three Colorado campuses.
  • Simplify a previously complex navigation system, highlighting the most important points while still containing a large amount of information.

NAS2SOLUTIONS

  • The homepage features several layers of navigations, with the main points large and central, secondary need in the upper right, and less important links in the footer.
  • Our staff photographer visited all three campuses to photograph their students and include quotes throughout the site. This gives site visitors an authentic view of the schools.
  • The registration form is bright and high on every page, since new student registration is one of the primary goals of the site.
  • The site also employs the google translate function for an affordable, accessible option to read it in Spanish.
  • The site is responsive, making it easy for mobile and tablet users to view and navigate.
  • To make the back-end easy for our clients to update, we build websites on the wordpress platform. WordPress is used by many of the worlds top companies.
