    Great little school. Good enviroment for children to learn where they feel safe and cared about. So far we have had 3 great teachers! Teachers at east newton motivate the children to maintain good behavior with treasure box behavior parties and other special treats.

    This is such a great school!!! The staff is overwhelmingly helpful and go out of their way to keep parents involved. Most all of the parents are involved as much as possible which is a huge factor in the success of the students. Definately the best school in the County!

    I think east newton elementary has improved and is doing a excellent job with the students. As a parent though we must also help our children understand the importance of good education. It really make my life much easier when my children are doing all they can do with the aide of the teacher.

    I think this school is wonderful.I have a special needs child and the teachers work with me on a regular basis to do what is best for my child.I feel that all the children are under constant supervision by all of the staff to make it a safe and friendly atmosphere.The majority of the staff including teachers my child has not had know who my child is by name.You can't say that about a lot of schools and I think it's great!

    This is a great school. Most of the teachers are great. There is one kindergarten teacher that is wonderful I wish I could say her name she is great with her kids in her class. Everyone in the office is wonderful. I feel really safe with my daughter in this school.
