    "I love this school. The teachers, as well as the faculty and principal, care so much about their students, and it shows. If a student is struggling, the teachers always go above and beyond to make sure they don't fall behind the rest of the class. They're kind, and they teach kindness. Academically, the curriculum is challenging and interactive. It's a small school, which I find wonderful because the staff know each student by name, even if they don't teach that particular child. The kids are safe and taken care of."

    "This is the school of both sides of my entire family. I was very proud. However...after seeing the disgrace of their elementary Christmas program SHOWN ON NATIONAL TV, I now question who is running this school and who is making very poor decisions. This school has now become a national disgrace!"

    "I attended Abington Heights for all of my elementary/ high school years. I never really thought much of it until I moved away, had children of my own and started dealing with schools as a parent. We have lived all around the world and country and by far one of the main reasons we came back to Abington Heights was for the school system. Newton Ransom is one of the best elementary schools my children have attended. The teachers are great and they really care about educating our children. The class size is average... anywhere from 16 to 20 kids per class. And because of other schools, my kids transferred into Abington with very limited education. With a lot of help from teachers and reading specialists, my kids are now excelling at their academics. It was a great decision to move into the Abington Heights School District."

    "Newton-Ransom is the best school in the Abington Heights District. Newton-Ransom has the feel and look of a small neighborhood school, but all the advantages that come with being in a large district. We have had three children go to Newton-Ransom and the educational experience has been exciting,fun, and challenging."

    "Newton Ransom Elementary is a beautiful and wonderous place for young minds to flourish. The teachers are warm and genuinely take interest in the childrens academic, emotional, social and intelectual growth. The music program is wonderful. The art and 'Arts Alive' programs are outstanding. Their is not much diversity among the students nor the faculty, however, it is a priority of the school to teach tolerance, acceptance and respect for one another. This emphasis on integrating positive cultural values into the education system is of great usefulness to this 'sheltered community'. Newton Ransom Elem. is a treasure. Those fortunate to have children attend are truly blessed."
