Newport Elementary is an okay school if your child is in regular education. The academic programs are average and the teachers in general are positive/helpful. However, if your child requires special education I would not recommend this school. The principal does not have the patience and understanding to deal with disabled children. The therapists are okay but in my experience were sometimes late for appointments and had a high rate of turnover. The 4th grade program is good and my child had a positive experience there. But overall I can not recommend this school because it is not accessible for everyone. Also the teachers do not wish to take responsibility for the disabled children while they are in their care and tend to blame parents when they are frustrated for failing with those students.
