Nuweetooun School is an amazing, nurturing environment for students of all backgrounds to learn in a way that best suits them. I am amazed at what the school has accomplished and the beautiful work the students are doing there.
the home school environment and the family atmosphere .All the children learn to respect and work with different age groups.Learn about their heritage along with others.My son has come along way since attending this school. They also try to accommodate family's with financial hardships by fund raising through out the year.
My Grandson just started at this school and he is making miraculous progress. He likes to go to school and is learning quicker than I ever expected. He's in Kindergarten and gets two recesses a day which he needs. They also study earth science by taking field trips and really examining the environment around them. I think the school offers structure but not at the expense of creativity. He was quickly washing out of Public School. I was dismayed at the attitude that pervades a lot of the Public schools now. I think that Lauren Spears has hit upon a good formula that promotes academic achievement but never at the expense of the individual. She's got it right!
Ms Spears dedication to children and culture, and her skills and enthusiasm as an educator, make this an afffirming and positive educational and growth experience for Native children. Particularly significant as our children suffer from the highest dropout rates in the US in many 'standard' public school settings. Bless her work.
This is a wonderful school teaching not only the basics, but is culturally appropriate for Native American students. It teaches Native culture and pride.
Loren Spears had a vision that she carried out not only for her children, but for all children as well... Her dedication and love for each individual child, teaching them, supporting them, believing in them to be the best that they can be, has certainly been witnessed throughout the beginning of her dream. It has been a privilege and an honor for my son to attend Nuweetooun School, watching his growth, his desire to want to learn - becoming more and more confident in his journey along the way. Nuweetooun has so much to offer the children, from our traditional culture, in ways of learning, intergrated with the current ways of learning today. Valuable lessons to say the least. It is all hand in hand!!! We are truly blessed to have the love and desire for greatness, (for our children) from Loren, the staff members, the Founders of Tomaquag Museum and I must not leave out the parents in recognizing the vision, this great school, NUWEETOOUN and coming together in unity! Thank you Great Spirit for all involved, may Nuweetooun School continue to flourish academically, traditionally, creatively and with love...
Great school! Helps our Native children to stay proud of their heritage, gain self esteem and to learn of other cultures. The children learn the tribal language as well as traditional games, songs, dance, drumming and flute playing. They learn academics in an interactive setting. I am so proud of Loren Spears, Nuweetooun Director, for fulfilling her dream and offering this school to our tribal community as well as the outside communities. Thank you Loren, keep up the great work.
It offers children an oppurtunity to have a more interactive learning environment.
Nuweetooun school is a wonderful nurturing environment for Native students. When I taught in the Ethnic Studies dept at Brown Univ, and in the Anthro/Soc dept at URI, my students would go down and volunteer at the school, and they always had a wonderful experience with the students and instructors at Nuweetooun
Lovely to have a school where this nation's first people incorporate their culture into the curriculum
It has a great independent spirit with a strong commitment to excellence.
Nuweetooun School not only gives our children a good education, it also teaches them about our Native American heritage and our language, which I believe is very important. Our children, grandchildren, friend's children and relatives are our future.
The one on one classroom attention is providing our future leaders with the tools encouragement and education to excel beyond all expectations!
It is the Only school in our state that truly teaches our Children the ways of our ancestors
Loren worked incredibly hard to build her school almost single handidly.She has given Native students an opportunity to learn their language,song,dance and so many other things native to themselves along with the everyday accademics which are learned in public schools.More importantly be proud of who you are.Lauren goes so far out on a limb to bring these children the best knowledge she can.Also the individual attention each student gets is incredible.Nia:wen Kowa Lauren

My children went to a number of schools.And I must admit this school is the best school!Mrs.Spears took the time and do a one on one with my children to get them all caught up to wear they need to be.And I just want to say Thank you so much to all the Nuweetooun teacher's Mr.Red Shirt.Keep up the good work.
