• Meet the educational needs of all students.  Every child, no matter what their individual needs and talents, deserves an education that enables them to become their best self.

  • Ensure progress to narrow the achievement gap.  Students of color and those with different needs and learning styles have a right to succeed at the same rates as their peers.  

  • Preserve class size and breadth of program.  The relationship with a special and wonderful teacher and innovative programs that engage every child are the hallmarks of a Newton education. 

  • Continue renovations and modernization of school facilities.  Healthy, well designed spaces support optimal learning and teaching.
