My husband and I both attended this school, and now our two children do. One of our children has special needs and NES has always gone above and beyond any expectations we have had. There are a couple of teachers that I don't particularly enjoy but the vast majority of faculty and staff are incredibly caring, constructive and supportive people who truly care about our children and the community. We also have a new principal since the last review was written. While I had no complaints about the former principal, I must say that the one we have now is incredibly approachable and pro-active. I love this school, it's the reason we live in this town!

I have 2 children in Newbury Elementary and one that has completed it. I will say that this is a safe environment for your children, however the principal is incompetent. He is afraid of taking a stand for the children of the school, and avoids parental confrontation at all cost. He will not return calls, and refuses to get involved with situations that need his attention. There are several teachers that deserve more recognition then they get and others that I personally don't feel should be teaching. As a parent you really need to be involved and speak up for your child. I wish you the best of luck if you are enrolling your child here.
