“Our son will be graduating from 8th grade this June and has been at the Newton School since 2nd grade. We can’t speak highly enough about the learning environment at the Newton School. Teachers build one-on-one relationships with students – often over many years – to create an environment of trust and support. Allison Abraham and the teaching team take an individualized approach to each child, working hand-in-hand with parents to develop clear academic and social goals each year. Approaches to summer activities, camps and tutoring are discussed to provide the most benefit to students. As our son transitions to high school, I have especially appreciated the expertise, input and guidance from Allison and the teaching team on testing, school options and making a final selection. Our son has been well-prepared academically for high school through the development of executive functioning skills and direct instruction on writing. He’s developed a love for science and history and has made steady progress in math. He has loved his time at the Newton School which he calls his “home away from home.”
