Office staff needs to be more knowledgeable and informative about all questions that potentially may be asked. Also need to be kind and polite.

This is the best school I have ever attended. It was easily the best three years of my life. I recently promoted this May, and am sad to have left the school. The current principal genuinely cares about the school and her students. She's always on top of things, informing parents weekly of what's going on at the school, and is always making sure her students and her school are safe. The teachers here are excellent. They're always very enthusiastic and seem to actually enjoy teaching. I've never heard of a "bad" teacher here. The office manager and assistant are also very courteous and helpful. The sports teams are also amazing. The coaches are always nice, make sure that their athletes have at least the minimum GPA requirement, and make sure that their athletes have great citizenship. The band has also always gotten superior ratings in what they call "festival". Dropping off and picking up students is also very easily done for both parents and students (thanks to the principal and vice principal). I definitely recommend this school to everyone since the staff seemed to like what they do and be there for the well being of every single student. Go big blue! <3

How to describe Newton Middle School in Hacienda Heights? SAFE, ALWAYS CHALLENGING AND MOTIVATING STUDENTS THROUGH ACADEMICS, ARTS, SPORTS, COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT, MUSIC, TECHNOLOGY AND SCHOOL ACTIVITIES. Teachers are caring, nurturing and always working hard to help students be successful. At Newton, you will find many teachers involved in after school programs preparing students for competitions, events or giving academic support/tutoring. Dr. Angela Lin, Newton's Principal has an open door policy. She is easy to reach and talk to. She listens to your concerns and finds the best solution by always keeping in mind the best interest of the student. Dr. Lin is very supportive of her students, staff and parents. Don't be surprised to see her encouraging students at a game, band festival, serving root beer floats and thanking the students for their hard work in academics and behavior. Motivating students to always do better by being responsible, respectful, studious, polite and safe. The front office staff welcomes everyone with professionalism. This is a very UNIQUE school with MAGNIFICENT STAFF AND STUDENTS! GREAT GATE /HONORS PROGRAM. GO KNIGHTS!

very nice school. teachers are above average and caring. staff is nice too. they are easy on grades though, everyone has a 4.0 GPA, ha ! safe and good students, no gang stuff like La Puente schools. parents are involved. it is a great place to grow up in during those pre-teen years. my middle school growing up had drugs, sex, and gangs. so this school is a breath of fresh air to have around. keep it up.
