16 Parent Reviews for Isidore Newman School

Isidore Newman School is a horrible school. Most of the kids, as well as teachers there are snobs. The high school has HORRIBLE drug problems. The teachers are mean to any lower schooler, unless their parents have money. Newman wants perfect children, and if your child has a different belief or way of ...  Read more

I have a sixth grader at Newman - no better school in New Orleans - hands down. If someone feels they have been treated poorly because of their socio-economic status, please bring this to the attention of your advisor. I find the kids to be upbeat, fun and competitive - all tools which will help them ...  Read more

In my opinion, Newman is the best school in the New Orleans area. With the highest level of academia as well as a great amount of offered assistance in the classroom setting, it sets the standards for education. There is no doubt that students from Newman go off to do greater and more impressive things ...  Read more

If education is a priority, this is the school for your kids!!! We are not rich or affluent but are willing to pay the premium in order for our kids to get the very best education available today. Neither of my children find the school pretentious or snobby.....quite the opposite in fact. Everyone we ...  Read more

I cannot say enough good things about Newman. The only downside is the price tag. Thankfully they also offer a lot of financial aid. The teachers and administrators are the very best. If we weren't moving, we'd have all of our children at Newman until college. The absolute best education a child can ...  Read more

I am a student in middle school, and I absolutely love it. The schoolwork is sometimes overwhelming, but not over the top. I am very athletic, and I love the sports program. My friends are the best even though there are cliques. Even though Newman is pretty dang expensive, no one judges eachother by ...  Read more

Newman is a school for your typical over-achieving snobby rich kid. Kids discriminate kids for the smallest things. The Academics are good but if you have a struggling student due to either lack of interest or learning disabilities this is definitely not the school for you. Teachers are more interested ...  Read more

I am a recent grad from Newman and went there for 13 years. I had an amazing experience and was able to participate in sports, debate, theater, student government, and other activities as well as get a top-notch education that has served me well in college and allowed my classmates and I to graduate ...  Read more

Academically, this is a great school. The majority of the students are very intelligent, and are interested in getting a good education, and most of the teachers are top-notch as well. The athletic and instrumental programs are also very strong. However, this school is the most elitist, snobby schools ...  Read more

You're correct in that Newman is no longer the school it was before Katrina. It's more open, more focused, and stronger than it has been in the 14 years my children have been there. With administrators from some of the nation's best schools (Choate, Lawrenceville, Pace) and a Head of School from the ...  Read more
