At Newport El we strive to be “The Best on the Beach!” We are a student-centered school with a focus on helping students reach their potential, develop socially and emotionally, become life-long learners, and be prepared for the rest of their educational career. Our incredibly talented staff works alongside our invested parent community to make Newport El the special place that it is. We have over 300 students in pre-school through 6th grade.
Newport Elementary offers access to a quality education for all students and encourages each student to reach their potential and be their best selves. This means we do whatever it takes to ensure that our students learn at high levels. We know that not all students learn the same way or at the same rate. We give students multiple opportunities to succeed. We offer our students a safe and secure environment with rich learning experiences. We provide enrichment and/or extra support in math and language arts through our Response to Intervention learning rotations. NESF provides additional part-time teachers to support these efforts and reduce the student to teacher ratio.
We strive to teach the whole child and help each individual to be successful. Our highly qualified teachers work together to provide a caring learning environment where students are given the tools they need to be kind and caring schoolmates and citizens. We teach, reward, and support academic and social behaviors via our PBIS model and character education. And, our school’s Wellness Team can provide intervention and supports related to behavior, social-emotional well-being and mental health.
At Newport El, we want students to be excited to come to school and experience enrichment opportunities that spark their interest. To that end, students have science lab class and music each week. Our science teacher also works with students in our garden, and our music teacher hosts a choir and a ukulele club. NESF supports our Collaboratory, a STEM makerspace and technology lab, and Art Masters, an art enrichment program where students learn about an artist and create artwork inspired by them.
Newport Elementary is supported by the partnership and hard work of so many. Our students are surrounded by a dedicated staff, terrific parent group, and supportive community. We all work together to provide students an outstanding school experience and give them tools they need to be successful, life-long learners. Newport Elementary School is truly the “Best on the Beach.”
