This is for the Mansfield Campus of NIA: Communication needs SIGNIFICANT improvement. Not only between the teacher(which needs help but I believe it is from teachers who have little to no experience). But as of late I am also concerned about communication between parents and the school secretary. It is very important for every email to be replied back to. It is courteous and creates a welcoming environment for parents to feel like they have a connection to the school at anytime. Details in activities are often overlooked and therefore creates more work for parents. I have experienced this a few times with having to redo what they didn't specify in field trips and school performances.

Effective school leaders: Agree


- a
I would say Strongly Agree but a part of leadership is creating consistency and leading the school to focus on things that are lacking like communication and attention to details in planning.


Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
I think improvement needs to be made in attempting to get teachers with experience. Or a more enhanced mentoring system needs to be in placed. Some teachers are lacking in many skills that do affect the learning environment or planning skills. Other teachers have unrealistic expectations and the workload does not match the age and grade. It is inconsistent between grades.

Amount of homework: Neutral


- a
I feel like they do a fair/moderate job with homework.

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


- a
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


- a
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.
