My child started kinder at NHE and is now in 2nd grade for 2016-2017 school year. She has an IEP program in place. During her Kinder and 1st grade, I felt she had great support from her teachers, para-educators, and the resource staff. Most of the office staff seems to know my daughter's names and that gives it a "homey" feeling.
Now she is in 2nd grade and she is 100% mainstream with support in class, it's only October but so far she's been doing well in class.
I love how supportive the school is for students with both special needs and those who need extra help in certain areas. I also like the integration of students of varying abilities into the same classroom.
I'm extremely happy with Newport Heights. The teachers I've had have been amazing and there are ample resources for the students. When problems arise, I feel that they are dealt with in a fair, effective way. Seeing a lot of positive change this year, as I wasn't the biggest fan of the principal last year. The new principal has been amazing.
