    "This is the best public middle school in the state of CO. Just look at their results vs the rest of the state. The staff is dedicated to the students and the parents are really involved in the school curriculum. I have one child in 6th grade and had one who is now excelling in high school (IB Program)."

    "I attended this school for the full 3 years. The first year that I was there, I was being harassed/bullied. My parents contacted the principle, and he did little to help the situation. He didn't talk to the bully or even really say anything to my parents beside saying that he would "take care of it". Throughout the rest of the three years that I was there, I saw/heard of students doing drugs, and having minor consequences. There was even a bomb threat and a few fist fights in the hallways. Academically, this school has not prepared me at all for high school. I maintained all A's and B's throughout the full three years, with no problem. But then I got to high school, and it was like I had not received any education since 5th grade. I highly recommend not sending your kids here."

    "Very happy with Newton! I'm a former middle school teacher, and we researched at least twenty top middle schools in the Denver area before deciding where to purchase our home (we relocated from another state). The administration & teachers genuinely care about their students here, the schedule allows for intervention and enrichment, the size is perfect (only around 600 kids), most kids walk or ride bikes to & from school, the teachers are thoughtful & intelligent, they seem to be focused more on the whole child rather than simply meeting academic standards (may be the reason for the 7/10 rather than a 10... too many schools make testing their priority, unlike Newton), and my kids like going to school (as much as any middle-schooler might, anyway!). It's groovy, and a bit outdated, but I think that's part of what gives Newton its charm. Nothing pretentious here! I'm a progressive ed activist with a Master's degree in secondary education, and I have two children at this school. Very pleased!"

    "I've had children attending this school since 2009 and have witnessed many wonderful changes over the years. The school's scores and ratings continue to increase and the ability to challenge the students continually rises. My children have all adapted quickly to the middle school environment and have grown academically and emotionally during their time at Newton. As my children have progressed into high school the transition has been seamless as Newton does a wonderful job preparing them for the next phase of life. The teachers are encouraging, supportive and willing to help when and if there is a need. The front office is friendly and always very helpful. The principal and assistant principal are very involved and committed to the continued growth of excellence at this school."

    "As a parent of a sixth grader at Newton, I am more than pleased with this school. My daughter came from Lenski Elementary where I got the impression that Newton was not a great school. I went to a perspective parent night and my fears were immediately put at ease after hearing the principal speak about the schools' many achievements, awards and programs. My daughter is so happy here and loves her teachers and has made so many new friends. I couldn't be happier that we chose Newton."
