Community ReviewsRead what parents are saying about Newtown Middle School
Our daughter has had nothing but a positive experience a NMS. The core teachers have been demanding and excellent. The rotations have been educational yet "fun". Yes, the building needs renovation but that is secondary to education.Posted by a parent on 6/22/2011
Just by reading the reviews, it seems that Newtown Middle School is not teaching its students to write! This town is filled with people defending its mediocre schools.Posted by a parent on 2/2/2011
NMS was horrfic for our children. In fact, the teachers were so intollerant we decided to move out of newtown alltogether. The teachers are narrow minded and exceedingly rigid, perhaps they were bankers in their former lives. if your student has a teacher who is not willing to accept a out of the box thinker or a "NON COOKIE CUTTER KID" get your child out of that class immediately. Newtown Middle School tolerates it's own intolerance. Not all children are the same. Don't buytheir political lip service. These people are false.Posted by a parent on 5/14/2010

N/AGreatSchools RatingParent Rating AverageLoved this school my children would never have been the same coming out of public school. Their faith, strong sense of confidence, morals and compassion all were nurtured and developed at St. Rose plus they are both in top level honors and AP tracks. Would say there were some years under prior administration that were trying but this school has terrific leadership and one of the best pastors in the whole diocese who loves and fully supports the school.Parent Review1y ago

N/AGreatSchools RatingParent Rating AverageWe have four children. One graduated from Fraser Woods this year and one will be entering the school to join two other siblings at the school. It has been by far the best investment we have ever made. Our kids have come into their own and thrived in the environment.Parent Review3y ago

- Sandy Hook Elementary School
7/10GreatSchools RatingParent Rating AverageWe have enjoyed our time at SHS. The teachers and leaders are kind and engaging. It’s still going through some transition being a new school - awkward phase. The homework was a bit excessive for a 1st grader in my opinion. The assistant principal is awesome, too bad he is leaving this year. Overall, a good school.Parent Review3y ago
