The parents are involved, the teachers are first rate, the Principal is excellent! We love our school!
We hope to have new beginnings at this school, look to the future with great hope and anticipation. M1
There are many good teachers at our school, however this years Science Fair was a great disappointment. I viewed several posters that did not look like students put any effort into what was required. It was poor planning to schedule a school Roller Skating night at the same time. What were they thinking? It is more important to support school projects and set priorities higher for the students who turned in below standard work. Disappointed Parents
It is a private school education wrapped in a public school. It has talented, committed, motivated leadership and teachers, the best technology for education, and a close community of involved parents. It is also known as "healthy heights" in regards to life style. I have had two high scoring children obtain their education at this school, and I could not be happier.
Dr. Suhr, the principal, is an excellent leader and guide for the faculty, which is top-notch. And parent involvement at our school is unmatched. Newport Heights Elementary is arguable THE best school in the country, private schools included.
Newport Heights has been an excellent school to our 2 children. Dr. Suhr has been a constant positive to our school and the teachers are devoted to giving our students the best education
teachers are great. school is clean. have many after school camps. close to home. get parents involved.
I love Newport Heights Elementery school because are school has skate night,great education,and wonderful teachers.
Dr. Suhr, the Principal and the whole staff make the difference between a good school and a GREAT school!
I love Newport Heights because ever since I had been a student there in the 1970's, it has always had a strong community pride about it and the parents and teachers were, and still are, a very helpful, highly qualified and a caring community for the students as a whole. I enjoy being a part of Team Newport Heights led by Dr. Suhr and definitely have a lot of shark pride!
It is a great school. We have a lot of special needs children and all the children and staff are really friendly and accepting of them.
Newport Heights is the 'brightest' place to be! Not only in terms of the education that takes place, the commitment of the teachers and students, and our test scores, but also in it's warm and safe environment! Shark Pride!
Newport Heights is the best! All the staff & employees there are amazing! A wonderful environment for my student socially and academically! What a GREAT school!
We have the most amazing Principal and Teachers! Our Principal knows every students most every parents names. He is involved ain all other program meetings, ex. Foundation and PTA.Mr Suhr became Dr. Suhr to extend hiss knowledge and experience for our school. I have been running the school fundraiser for the past 4 yrs with a 1 yr break. We raise over $100,000 basd on what Dr Suhr feel is necessary for our school. Our state test scores have grown leaps and bounds over the past 5 yrs! We have a very diverse group of family and students at our school, which is beneficial for all! We have a VERY active PTA with many fun and educational programs! I have 3 children and 1 being a special needs child, I could pick a better place for my children to learn and grow!
What's not to love? An amazing principal and teachers, great students and parents... this school defines 'community'!
Our school totally rocks! I went to Newport Heights when I was young, both of my kids went through Newport Heights, and now I work there! My 5th grade teacher is still there an one of the favorites now just like when I was young! Newport Heights is not only the best school around for students, but the staff is awesome, like one big family!! We have so many great programs for the students and our teachers are truely some of the best in the district! I can honestly say that I love Newport Heights!
Newport Heights is such a great place! The staff, parents and students are truely wonderful people.
This school is very warm. The teachers care. There is alot of parent involvement. The principle is energetic and passionate about the student's academic success.
The 'new' principal is wonderful. I love the manner in which every morning he greets the parents and children as they go to school. The technology is outstanding. I have really lucked out by having excellent teachers. My son has attended for two years, and I am proud to have my daughter attend. My son is athletic, yet he won a math/science program this summer. His teacher encouraged his interest as he is strong in this area. Everyone I know loves this school.
I feel fortunate to have my child at this school. The previous comments don't apply, in my opinion, anymore. We have an excellent new principal and incredible parent involvement. I feel as though each year will only get better. With two more children entering this school in the next couple of years, that sets my mind at ease.
