Excellent school! The staff is very friendly and supportive. My son who has Asperger's and Tourette Syndrome was struggling from school to school. When he arrived to the Newmark school he felt immediately accepted, his self stem improved and in less than a month he went to level 3! We are thrill to have our son in such a great school, we strongly recommended.

The program available here allows children with special needs to excel at a comfortable pace, while still being challenged. The expectations are high without being frustrating. Students remember what it is like to be successful!

An excellent school. My son is PDD-NOS, and the school is geared to provide him with the all the support services he needs to excel in addition to a very supportive academic environment. The school administrators work very closely with the parents to keep us involved and updated on what takes place in the school. Definitely worth looking at if your child is on the high functional end of the autistic spectrum.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
