Newport Coast has been better than expected. We moved here from another nearby district for the school. (From Capo Valley.)
The transition was difficult for us, NCE is a very organized, streamlined school, and our previous schools did not prepare us for a school that functions so well. The teachers talk to each other in how to prepare students for the next level, and the principle is very engaged in the daily workings of the school.
We are happier than we could have guessed. We feel the standards here raise the bar of expectations and the teachers seem happy to come to work each day.
This is a fantastic school and I only have positive things to say: Hard-working teachers, friendly staff, nice and clean campus, and a young, energetic, and cool principle! But above all, what makes a school great is the level of commitments of the parents to their children and in spite of what I had heard, I found the parents to be extremely involved in the school and the education of their kids. We love NCE!
OUTSTANDING school. My girls used to attend Peters Canyon and dreaded school. They fell behind due to a very turbulent divorce. NCE caters to their students individual needs. The staffs dedication and concern not only shows, but for our family has made a world of a difference. My girls now LOVE school and LOVE to learn!!
LOVE this school! The academic environment is geared towards challenging those who need more, helping those who are struggling, and of course gently pushing those right in between. The teachers are dedicated and the principle has a tough job, but does it with class and great skill.
This school is awesome! My sons teacher is truly amazing. She truly cares about my son and has been so helpful and instrumental in his academic achievements. The principal is a very caring individual and it transcends throughout the whole of the school and thru the teachers.
I am so proud to be a teacher at Newport Coast. I have been in education for many years, and it is an honor to work with such a dedicated staff. We strive to support our students with love and respect. We create engaging, thought provoking lessons, in order to foster critical thinking and other invaluable skills in our classrooms. We need to teach to the standards and provide all students with access to the curriculum. We have to balance the needs of English Language Learners, with special needs students, as well as develop challenging enrichment for our GATE students, and still reaching and supporting our at grade level learners. Parking may not be great, but if that is the greatest concern at our school, then we are doing pretty well.
