22 Parent Reviews for Newhart Middle School

This is an excellent school because of the student-focused teacher, principal and staff. I had one child here from 2003-2007 and another from 2011-2014 and both have had fun, engaging teachers who stretched their limits and cared. They were both FULLY prepared for the rigors of advanced high school ...  Read more

My child attended Newhart for three years and is currently in high school. Newhart MORE than prepared her for high school and she is doing extremely well. In her three years, she never saw a fight, drugs, alcohol, or pregnancies. There may be small traces of this there, but those are not the crowd ...  Read more

This is an excellent school overall. The fundraising programs are well organized, and I am learning a lot every day. There have not been any serious violence issues (just a few "horseplay" incidents) that I know of, but there has been a drug issue that the staff is very strict about. The anti-bullying ...  Read more

This is an amazing school with great teachers and students! The drug and violence issues the previous parents spoke about are minimal and honestly, those types of issues usually start at home. Newhart provides an outstanding education for my kids - as the test scores prove! My kids have found great friends ...  Read more

Great teachers at this school. Unfortunately the kids here are very bad. There is a lot of violence and drugs at this school and I don't believe it's a very safe learning environment.

This school is only good for its academics!! I am schocked at the profanity and drug culture this middle school has in a middle class neighborhood.!!! If your child wants to have friends he has to be a part of this party scene! I can't believe I actually sent one of my kids here in the 2008-2009 school ...  Read more

highly educated teachers, motivating classrooms, ZAP program (zeroes are prohibited - an after-school program where students finish their assignments not turned in so they do not get zeroes & therefore fail classes), very strict & anonymous bullying policy, fun lunch activities, excellent staff!

As a teacher at Newhart for five years, I can say that this school is an amazing place to teach our students. The teachers I work with are collaborative, educated, caring, and student-focused. When teachers are free to thrive in what they do (which is to teach) this helps students also to thrive academically, ...  Read more

I see lots of positive changes going on at Newhart. The school is large, but the staff is very good. My son's classes are about 30-32 kids, except band, which is larger. Would I like them to be smaller? Sure, but in today's economic climate in CA/CUSD, I am glad they aren't really big. Great music ...  Read more

CST* Test Scores

Grade Level:

Test Year: 2012
Newhart Middle School
Capistrano Unified School District
* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
