My child has had a great experience in a year at Newport Mill. Her classes are interesting and challenging, and the teachers coordinate together well so as not to assign homework in every subject every night. She has made good friends, enjoyed school events like the Tiger Run, and joined clubs. At our conferences her teachers gave us thorough, useful info about her progress. So far, so good, NMMS!

I am a strong believer in the public school system, but after sending my son there for 3 years and now my daughter for 1 year, I am sad to say that Newport Mills has not been a positive experience for my kids. Some teachers are wonderful, but they are out-numbered by others who are ineffective, overworked. Class size in 25-30 students. The Principal seems to lack leadership. My son experienced bullying and it took me emails, phone-calls and even seeking "outside" council to get a meeting with the school about the situation. My daughter complains that "I can't learn because there are too many kids in my class- and the teacher spends most of her time taking out kids who are disruptive". Wish that school would support their teachers and give them more training, smaller classrooms.

Newport Mill Middle School is the middle school I went to and I regret every moment I spent in there. Most of the teachers there were rude, disrespectful and threatened/belittled me, saying things like, "I'm done helping you" or "You're really annoying" and even "You're ruining my Valentine's day." when I asked for help and was stuck on a question or problem. One of the teachers even threatened to call my dad because I didn't understand a problem. Because of this I stopped asking the teachers for help, but my dad kept receiving complaints from teachers that I wasn't making any effort on my behalf to seek help. In my resource class, the teachers occupied us with stupid class work while the whole point of the class was to do homework or late work, and when we had no homework to do, part of the grade was to write "none" or "no homework" in the class that you had none in the agenda book. And simply because I asked if I could write a X instead of none or no homework, I was given lunch detention for marking something "wrong" in my agenda book. Also I was bullied on a daily basis. When I went to staff to report this, they didn't do much, if anything, to help me. But I've ranted enough, point is: DON'T send your child to Newport Mill MS unless you want him/her to come home crying everyday due to being pestered by a student or a TEACHER. Both thumbs down.

Newport Mill Middle School boasts a multicultural student population, a highly diversified staff and an environment that makes one feel more like they are in a small village than a public school. Students from over 40 countries walk the halls of Newport Mill. There is an excellent ESOL program and a differentiated curriculum for the diversity of students. The staff of the school are devoted to infusing rigor into the curriculum. Teachers challenge students with lessons based on higher level thinking. There are a plethora of after-school activities in the arts, drama, sports and computer. The staff are dedicated to the students and there is a rich dialogue ongoing between staff and parents that reinforce the greatness of the school spirit "Go Tigers!"
