Open Quote To exert principal pressure negatively erodes relationships. Close Quote

Open Quote I am concerned with how in touch the school is with its facility, and its training of said facility. My son who is in fifth grade, constantly does not want to go to school. I figured he might be being bullied by another child, as he is sensitive and likes to please, but he has so many friends. He has never acted this way in the past going to school; he has always loved school, even creating his own clubs for like-minded children. He does well on his report card. That said, he made me promise "I could not tell anyone" but he is scared of his teacher, which as a mom I knew, I just didn't realize it was this bad. I would call her "high-maintenance with control issues." My child in the past has been "student of the year" for his grade, have won many awards, and has never had a problem with any other teacher, and he has had some hard academic classes. He also has never been in trouble at school, so it is not a behavior issue (plus other facility have commented on how lovely he is to work with, as we do donate our time to the school). I told him I would get him transferred, but he is scared of the repercussions. I know he is this is not an isolated incident, as he tells me others feel the same. He is looking forward to leaving Newport Heights next year. :'-( Close Quote

Open Quote the leadership quality is low... the third grade teacher tried to convince me my son had ADHD by exaggerating his behaviours in the class. Not mentioning even one positive point, she repeatedly talked about my son and I felt frustrated and hopeless.
The staff are rude and discriminate between white and minorities and as an Asian I felt not belonging to the community. Close Quote

Open Quote I share concerns about the new principal this year. The quality of the teachers has been generally high over the years, however the style and quality of the principal's leadership seems to not be conducive to collaboration or positive change within the school community. Close Quote

Open Quote Newport Heights Elementary School has been renovated with all new buildings and a very conducive educational design. A new spirit flows from the administration, teachers, parents, and students and I have observed a positive direction. This is in addition to the fact that this has always been a school bringing together families from the Newport Heights neighborhood, a slightly hidden pocket of Bellevue with above average demographics in terms of educational aptitude. It's new and it's better. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.

About Immunization Rates:
Kindergarten Immunization Rates: This graph shows the percent of students in the school who have all of the required doses for the vaccine type for kindergarten entry (complete). The following vaccines are required for Washington State kindergarten entry: DTaP (Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis), Hep B (Hepatitis B), MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella), Polio and Varicella (chickenpox). The data comes from schools reporting to the Department each school year. Schools report total counts of students based on each student’s Certificate of Immunization Status, which is parent-reported and is not health care provider verified. The goal line is the national Health People 2020 target of 95% completion for these vaccines for school age children.
Protected Students: The number and percent of students in the school reported to have all required vaccinations for their age and grade.
Students with plan: The number and percent of students in the school with a temporary approved plan for getting caught-up on required vaccinations. These students can remain in school if they follow this plan.
Students with exemption: The number and percent of students in the school reported to have any exemption type for at least one vaccine.
Unknown: The number and percent of students whose immunization status is not known. These students do not fall into any other category – they may be missing required vaccines, but have no temporary delay plan or exemptions. Students with no signed CIS on file are also counted here.
