If you have a choice, do not send your child to this school. The leadership is horrible. The principal, Mr. Davis, does not even attempt to help parents. He ignores requests and he does not meet with parents who have concerns about their children's education. The former principal was much better.

My son just started Kinder this year and so far his teacher has been great! I have noticed a lot of bad reviews about the school, but I have also notice that parent envolvement in the school is not a priority! I understand that in order for a child and a school in order to be successful it needs involvement so if parents are not involved in the education of their kids or school not much can be expected! Kids need to know that parents take their education a priority in order for a successful student and a successful school! Most of the meeting I've attended so far have been very informative but at the most only 5-10 parents show up!

I have a child at this school and I think its a good school. All the teachers that my daughter has had have been great. Her teacher last year seem to go out of her way to make sure she was getting the help she needed. I do have to say that Mrs. Paisano leaving was a good change. I didn't know who she was for 3/4 of the the year and the new principle was always with the kids. She's super friendly and that means alot to me that she can connect with the kids. Mrs. Paisano I believe would have been better with junior high age kids. I do wonder how things will be for 09/10 with all the new students from the closed schools.

After reviewing this year, I wish Mrs. Paisano was back. There were more activities for the students and we could see that the teachers were being guided to do more for the children rather than just their own thing. Chino produces teachers who return to their schools they attended and do what they did when they were going to school - they are teaching what they want to teach and not the standards. Mrs. Pisano brought a different perspective and higher expectations.

I have two children at this school and they love the school so much. My children are also consistent honor students and as far as I know, the school is doing well. In fact, it even received a huge trophy from the district which was won by Newman 12 years ago. That's something! As for the principal, let's give her a break. Maybe she's just in the period of adjustment and when Mr. Bailey left, we just felt the difference because of his constant presence in the morning when we drop off our kids and he's there to greet us warmly. Mrs. Pisano just needs to lighten up a bit.

I love the school, as for the new principle that Newman has, I'm not to happy with. She needs to learn not to talk down to parents. My daughter has been at Newman for 3 yrs now. She will not be returning as along as Mrs. Piasano is there.

My daughter has attended this school for 4 years and at first under the principal Mr. Bailey the school was Fabulous. Mr. Bailey knew every student and cared about them. The school was ran well and the kids seemed under control. Since the new principal came Mrs. Piasano the school has really gone down hill. It seems that no one cares anymore and more an more unacceptable things are happening. I am glad to say my daughter is graduating and going to junior high away from this district.

My daughter spent 7 years at Newman (K-6th) and we are both devastated that she is leaving for junior high. Academics were stressed, and any help the kids needed, they got. She maintained an honor roll status for her last 3 years, and could not have done that without a lot of help and support from teachers and home. She left Newman with a new sense of self-worth and is carrying her head high....many of the teachers took a very personal interest in her and helped her feel good about herself. I always saw parents on campus, each volunteering their own time to help the children. The office staff was kind, courteous, helpful. I am leaving Newman with many new friends that I cherish. My daughter is glad Ramona Jr. High is close, because she definitely plans on stopping by next year and keeping in touch.

This is the worst school I've ever seen. I think the school should get more playground supervisors. The educational program of this school is decent.

I give Newman Elementary an A+ it is the best school that your children can attend there is so much involvement between the parents and teachers it is amazing. I have never seen the teachers and the principal Mr. Bailey get out there and get dirty with the children. I would recommend anyone who can to send there kids to this amazing school where the teachers have been there since they attended school there. I also recommend that parents get involved in the PTA. It is the best education decision you can make for your child. I've also had teachers call see how the family was doing or just to let me know how well my child was doing in class and that is a wonderful feeling to know they notice your child.

My children have been at Newman for the past 2 years, coming from fundamental school. I wasn't sure how it would be since 'fundamental' schools are spoken so highly of, well I am so happy that I made the decison to change by boys to Newman! The teachers are fantastic, they take the time to call me at home when they want to talk to me and not for complaining but to say 'hey, your son is doing wonderful', the principal is fabulous, Mr. Bailey is A++, I love this school and am glad to be a part of this school!!
