Principal’s Address

We are in the midst of exciting growth, and our community is being enriched by new families, facilities, and programs, ensuring more opportunities to build a brighter future for our students. If you are part of our community, then you are already experiencing these changes, and if you are considering Newton’s Grove, then I encourage you to get to know us better. We are an inquiry-based, student-focused school dedicated to the success of each child in our care.

As principal of Newton’s Grove, I witness students progressing from early childhood to young adulthood. Being part of this process is immensely rewarding. In over thirty years as an educator and school leader, I have seen first-hand what works and what does not. That is why I am such a proponent of the Newton’s Grove emphasis on self-discipline, daily homework and the traditional practices that produce academic rigor and excellence. At the same time, I know our programs are progressive, stressing technical innovation, creative problem-solving and independent learning. Working alongside an inspired leadership team and an amazing group of teachers, our common goal is to ensure our students have the skills and flexibility to succeed in an ever-changing future, and the confidence to turn their dreams into reality.  

I am privileged to be a part of this dynamic, dedicated and nurturing community. Together, we help Newton’s Grove students become the leaders our world needs.
