School Notes

  • Our ultimate goal at the Newton Learning Center is to provide our students the appropriate skill set to successfully navigate the social realm. We pride ourselves in being able to see our students transition out of our school, back into a comprehensive learning environment, and continue to reach their full potential simultaneously. Many of our students find it difficult to concentrate for long periods of time in large mainstream school classrooms. Our school has a low student to staff ratio of 8:1. Our program is intensive and produces results.

Although my child is very high functioning, he was not able to keep up with the social development of his peers. Once at Newton, he instantly felt at home. I can't speak highly enough about how dedicated the staff is to each child's growth socially, scholastically, and emotionally.

The staff has worked very hard to restore my daughter's confidence. She knows she can accomplish anything if she sets her mind to it. They truly reach the ONE!

Our stress level as parents has also dropped since we are relieved that our kids are in a safe and bully-free environment with accepting and caring peers and teachers.

Do you think your son has a learning disability? Not sure what to do? A special needs school might be the way to go.
You thought everything was set. The test scores were excellent. She had glowing teacher recommendations. The visit and the interview went well. But the school didn't accept your child. What do you do now?
