William T. Newland Elementary School 5

I love this school! Both of our children attended Newland from k-5 and were provided a solid education by teachers and administration who strive for 100% success. As you know, due to budget cuts, some art programs and other "non essential" programs were cut. This didn't stop the administration at Newland, who in response, went out, wrote and won many grants to companies to give our children exposure to things that other elementary schools did not provide. For example; The Frieda Belinfante Class Act partnership connects the Pacific Symphony to a select number of Orange County elementary schools each year. Schools are invited to participate in this unique partnership program through a competitive application process. Class Act strives to enhance existing school music programs by providing additional musical experience through the Symphony. Focusing on five main "contact points" with schools, the program works to increase awareness of, and involvement with, symphonic music for elementary school students, their families and educators. We have participated in class act for 5 years and hope for many more.

My son has attended the early intervention (pre-K) program for his autism spectrum disorder here for 2 years. He has had excellent help from his teacher and the special education aides and specialists. He has gotten an excellent individual program to meet his needs and is thriving. The staff is great and seem to have endless energy and enthusiasm.

Small community feel, kids first attitude, great leadership by Mrs. Davis. All students feel like part of the school!

Great parent involvement. Lots of extracurricular activities for the children. The parents definitely help the school and the teachers. The teachers can focus on teaching our children. Would like to see smaller classroom size.

The quality of the academic programs were very good. My son atttended kindegarden through 3rd grade. All his teachers were excellent. All provided exceptional education. There were music and art programs. There is a high level of parent involvement. It is one of the many things that made the school great.
