We have been at Newman for 3yrs. this year has been the worst. communication has always been bad but this year. and heaven help you if your kid has a problem

Supports LD students: Disagree


- a
I understand that it is a charter school, and so there are less funds for special services, but there are some kids that are receiving little to no help. kids that need to move around in class are in small classrooms where they will be distracting to others and then get into trouble. kids are not allowed to talk at lunch.


Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
There are teachers that are not certified, that have not passed their teacher certification teaching here !!

Handles bullying effectively: Neutral

I am not so sure about how Newman really deal properly with bullying 'cause my son reported that there are kids "who doesn't care about him and doesn't wanna be friends with him". No child should feel this way if the school fosters friendly environment and good relationship among students.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree

It seems like my child has a hard time understanding homework that I have to be helping him most of the time.


Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
My child is in Newman Grace campus. Since he started Newman, he learned a lot about good characters as they focus on different characters each week and encourages students to use this character.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree

Great schools are formed from the top down. Dansby struggled communicating with parents. Phone calls, voicemails, and emails went unanswered. Very disappointing. Over four years, I received no communication with her.

Develops character: Agree


- a
Weekly POWWOW assemblies were greatly appreciated. It was a great opportunity for them to be exposed to great life lessons!


Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
There were a lot of new teachers which made each year different... Over the four years we were enrolled we encountered some very passionate teachers a good portion as "specials" teachers. Of course you appreciate the fun your kiddos experience throughout the day, you also understand that the STATE recommendations aren't impressed with specials. However, there were a lot of teachers that were there as a holding place. Only taking the position until an administrative position became available. During a parent conference, my sons third grade teacher indicated her true passion was to be a counselor and her studies for her masters classes keep her up as she pursue her true passion. Which I admire, but not when 8 year olds suffer and instead of engaging lessons are given worksheets and BrainPOP videos to replace the teacher. No good.

Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
The lack of engagement in the classrooms spills over to the homework. Worksheets. Lack of feedback when an error is made on checked homework is difficult to reinforce effectiveness. Teacher doesn't go over the errors.
