We feel very fortunate to have picked a neighborhood that feeds into such a wonderful Elementary School such as NLE. The Teachers, Administration and PTO are top notch! I'm a full time single working Mom and wish I could be more involved but feel blessed knowing that my children are getting a great education in such a wonderful environment!

I have never come across a more diverse school and ALL children are treated equally We are a British family and my daughter has good friends at this school from all different nationalities and backgrounds My daughter has loved both her teachers and all staff have been wonderful when we need any information There's a strong parent presence in the school and they do some fun PTO events This is a school for the all the community it serves

Our children's school is amazing, from the front office staff to the teachers and even the custodial crew are invested in making our kids experience the best it can be. A majority of teachers are invested in the teaching our children not just to SOL standards but to standards that will help them transition smoothly into middle and high school. I like the fact my children have exposure to computers, tablets and other technology as well as the traditional learning styles. I would love to see more parents involved in the PTO to learn how much our school does for our kids.

This is a fantastic school with a wonderful Vice Principal and staff. The front office seems to run very smoothly and I absolutely adore the school's nurse - she is so sweet and caring! LOVE HER!!! Newton Lee takes into consideration the safety of the students as a paramount issue - this is something I really appreciate. -Parent of a 4th & a 5th grader

We have 2 kids in Newton Lee and absolutely love the school. We have moved several times in last 5 years and this is the 3rd elementary school for my son, so we know the difference between excellent and mdeiocre schools. As with everywhere, some teachers in Newton Lee are better than others. But overall its a great school with an outstanding Principal and staff. Its amazing to see how solid parent involvement is, diversity is also a plus factor. In case we ever move, we will definitely miss Newton Lee.

Wholeheartedly disagree with the totally subjective post belowl Newton-Lee has quite a diverse population. Why would the staff choose to treat this one person differently? And why would they treat the same person suddenly better when they wanted to enroll their child? This is not a private school. This is not the Ritz. You will not recieve white-glove service at the front desk. They will not receive more money if you enroll your child. In fact, it will only add to the overcrowding situation. Enroll your child somewhere else and leave room for our children who come to school for the excellent education/top-notch staff, extracurricular activities, etc., not the empathy.

Was receieved by the staff with an extremely prejudice "I'm better than you" arrogance, although Newton-Lee has a vast majority of students from different backgrounds. However, when the staff thought I was a parent of a child (on a different occasion) they were extremely friendly and welcoming which really put me off, because I knew it was fake. I am not going to enroll my child into this kind of a school, and have warned my friends from it as well. While the world isn't all one race, gender, nationality, and religion - our children should be taught to be open-minded and accepting of people's differences. From this school, they will simply be taught to be rude/arrogant to diversity, unless it compromises their status. I was astonished by how rude they were before, compared to how friendly they were when they thought I was going to enroll my child in this school. Everyone else's review is solely based on being receieved by the staff as a parent.

Unbelievable school community with a very dedicated staff. Just look at the parking lot before and after school. The lot still has many many staff cars long after the day is over and before it even begins. They are dedicated to providing the very best for the students. My child has benefitted greatly from the team approach and has really blossomed at Newton-Lee. The events are of very high quality, especially the Music programs and their annual field day is always tied to a curriculum theme. There is so much good to say about this school. Its is an excellent learning community! Take a walk down the halls sometime, the displays are just amazing!

Newton-Lee is a great school! My kids have attended in private schools before and I have to say that we didn't experience any quality issues with this school. We are very pleased and our kids love this school. The teachers and staff are friendly and firm when needed.

What happened to my review? I said nothing that was against the review guidelines. I said that Newton Lee expects a lot from the children and parents. I said that an average student may struggle to keep up if they don t have a lot of support at home. I said that I get frustrated when trying to help my child because so much has changed since I was in school. I agreed with another review here that a staff member in the main office is very rude to both parents and students. I said the PTO is excellent. The majority of the teaching staff and the administration are excellent as well.

One of the teachers at Newton-Lee is beyond ruuude, and so is the majority of the office staff. The Principal is friendly, so I am at least pleased with that. However, I am a firm believer that the school staff should be setting a greaat example for our children. After all, little kids look up to adults. If the staff at a school is treating the parents in a rude manner, then I guarantee you that they are treating some of the children in the same way. Don't expect a friendly, nice environment if you are considering to move to this area!

Moving out of the area and the school is the reason I'm sad to leave. It is a very safe and loving place to send you little ones. New Principal that has been a great addition!

This is a great school!! The teachers go above and beyond the call of duty. Incredibly involved parents. I feel that my kids talents are celebrated. Every kid in our neighborhood seems so happy to go to school and it shows in the attendance records.
