We moved to this school district in Nov of last year. I have to be honest this school isn't the best, but its definitely not the worst. The teachers my kids had seen to really care about the students and the school always had after school fun for the kids(which mine loved) the only things I can really say I HATE about the school is its not diverse at all, and they don't push the kids hard enough for this challenging economy. But I feel like the school has a family feel to it. The principle is great (a little nutty to me) but the kids at the school seem to love him! Overall I would say an OK school, nothing more or less.

I do not recommend this school...run to another school while you have the option!!! My child had a terrible experience with the school faculty. She made excellent grades, but was mistreated by faculty after making complaints of being bullied. As a new student, my child was miserable in this school and nothing was done to improve her experience.

Newlin is a great school. The teachers work to meet the needs of the students. They have a great new principal, who seems to put the families and kids first. I have seen a lot of improvement at this school.

The old principal, Dr. Miller was spot on. She knew how to reach the hardest to reach kids. My children loved going to school when she was there. We were sad to see her go. We hope that the new principal is as caring and supportive as she was!

I don't recommend this school at all. They only care about test scores and nothing else. My kids come home in tears every day from here. I don't see the nurturing that kids need at all there for them to really think they can grow up and do good things with their life.
