Newtown Middle School5

Our daughter has had nothing but a positive experience a NMS. The core teachers have been demanding and excellent. The rotations have been educational yet "fun". Yes, the building needs renovation but that is secondary to education.
NMS was horrfic for our children. In fact, the teachers were so intollerant we decided to move out of newtown alltogether. The teachers are narrow minded and exceedingly rigid, perhaps they were bankers in their former lives. if your student has a teacher who is not willing to accept a out of the box thinker or a "NON COOKIE CUTTER KID" get your child out of that class immediately. Newtown Middle School tolerates it's own intolerance. Not all children are the same. Don't buytheir political lip service. These people are false.
My child is doing so well thanks to the great teachers and the emotional support that she gets in this school. Her grades have improved so much this year. Even though the school is not modern like Reed, the core values and the emphasis on kindness over competitiveness make it stand out as a happy, safe environment.
