The Newton School is a private, non-profit, general educational school for elementary and middle school students in Kindergarten through 8th grade.
Many of our students struggle in a traditional school environment. They may have difficulty sitting still for long periods, paying attention in a large group or finding productive things to do in less structured periods. They may have trouble making or keeping friends, can become anxious in new situations, or can be easily overwhelmed. Our students thrive in a nurturing, flexible environment where they are accepted as themselves and have the opportunity to grow and flourish.
