Very disappointed and disgusted with Newman's leadership and their decision to house elementary students in an uncompleted shopping complex for 2014-2015 school year. I will be very surprised if TEA approved the shopping complex location. There was no prior communication from the school informing parents that students will have to cross major highways to attend classes in a shopping complex. No safety precausions whatsoever, and lack of communication, they left several parents hanging..... with no time to make better choice for their children. As Newman continues to increase the number of students from an average of 15 to 25 per class with no building of its own, it is apparent that the future of the students are not their priorities. High student ratio and higher funding is their top priorities. Pay close attention to their Star text scores in the last two years with no improvements. As a parent, I am very concern about the future of students at Newman International Academy of Alington.
Most of the teachers in this school are not bad. The students are the problem. Some of them seem to just not care about anything. They are rude to the teachers and to other students. I didn't like that school at all since it didn't have many activities to join and the students were rude and unfriendly. Mrs. Hart is really bad since she relies on rumors in judging students. The food is horrible too. I would not get my children in there
Outstanding with a caring and compassionate staff. Not many bells and whistles at the school but that is made up for with the teachers truly inspiring their students.
I am very upset with this school. Been telling them since my child was on a 504 plan, but no one seemed to care. Told them for two years, but when it came time for my child to take the STAAR test, I was called in one week before the test and asked to go over her modifications for the testing. They didn't care about modifications before the test, but they sure did when it came time for the test. They also did not give my child the extra time she was supposed to have for the test and the adminisytrator told her to guess at the answers she did not have time for and she did not pass that part. I am very unhappy with this school. Seems they are not for students that have any type of learning disability. They totally ignored the fact that my child needed extra help, even after I talked to two teachers several time about the situation. I would not recommend this school to anyone. My other children left the school earlier in the school year due to bullying. This is a serious problem at this school too.
This school is amazing!!! The teachers truly care about the students. I love how they incorporate character building and values into their POW WOW meetings.
If you are looking for the perfect school...start your own. But if you are looking for a school that has a caring and well educated staff of teachers and administration, plus strong character building for students and Christian values, Newman is a great place for your child to attend. Parents are welcomed to have an active volunteer role and the students are inspired everyday to go above and beyond. Not a lot of frills at the school but good strong teachers who give life long lessons and don't just teach to the test. Go Warriors!
Have been with this school since the beginning. It is an excellent choice for our student. The staff and teachers are top notch quality and this school is exactly what this city needs as an alternative to regular public school. It continues to grow each year and add more grades and more excellent and exciting opportunities for it's students. So thankful to have this school in our great city of Arlington.
Excellent school. I have never had more caring and welcoming staff. My boys learn so much and they actually look forward to going to school everyday. Love everything about this school!!!!
The elementary campus has excellent administrators and teachers. They care about the students. They truly partner with parents and make decisions that are best for kids.
