'My child has been going to the Newton Memorial School now for three (3) years. The Principal, Vice Principal, and 'all' the Teachers, Guidance Counselor, Nurse, and Custodians 'All' look out for the health and welfare for each and every child. No child is left behind! The memorial school and its staff strive to be the best. And care about family values in and out of the school. My child continues to better his self esteem because the school and its staff are always listening and willing to accommodate him. And I 'Thank' each and every one of them for who they are, and for all their continuous efforts!

Posted February 23, 2004

Having lived in 3 states and having had our 4 children in 3 different schools, the teachers and both the Principal and Vice Principal are some of the best we've come across in the East Coast. They take their time with the children and show how much they really care by always going out of their way to improve their school and help the children. I have one child in the IEP Program and they are very cooperative and helpful. Always willing to listen and accomodate. My child is now doing much better than we would have hoped, thanks to all their efforts!
