    As of to date we are very pleased with our son's school. We've been monitoring our son's performance since he began attending to this school. The curriculum goes in compliance with the standards of the state. The size of the classroom is appropriate for every child to receive the necessary attention. His two teachers are very professional and very commited to making teaching and learning a priority. The PE coaches are very respectful with the kids and they focus on the goals to be achieved for the day. We are certainly very satisfied with Newman Elementary!
