“I can’t begin to tell you how pleased we are with Newton

“I can’t begin to tell you how pleased we are with Newton. My son is in the seventh grade at the school. We moved him during third grade from a Fairfax County public school. The small classroom sizes and individual attention are just one of the things that make this school so special. My son’s teachers are passionate about what they do and truly take an interest in his success. They actually get excited when my child does well on a test! This unique school is how all schools should function… blocks of classroom time that are followed by exercise time in the gym , field trips to learn hands on about particular topics, elective blocks to introduce kids to yoga, art, etc..Newton is one of a kind. My son tells me quite frequently how happy he is at Newton and how lucky he is that he doesn’t have to go to his old school. The only negative I see is that it only goes up to the eighth grade. We have been so spoiled at Newton that I can only hope to find such a perfect place for my son for high school. Run, don’t walk to see this fabulous school. You will not be disappointed. “”
