The Newton School

The Newton School in Sterling, VA serves grades K-5 in the Lower School and grades 6-8 in the Middle School.
It is designed for bright children who can benefit and thrive in a less traditional school environment.
The school offers small class sizes, hands-on, individualized academics, and a lot of physical activity built into the curriculum.
All students participate in at least 60 minutes of intense exercise during the school day in a facility with more than 10,000 square feet of gym space. Our gym space includes a foam pit, sports court, ball pit, trampolines, and more. We believe that integrating movement into the school day helps enhance academic performance, improve physical ability, build self-esteem, and prepare children to better meet life`s challenges.
