Welcome to the Newman Elementary School
We are an inclusive neighborhood school located in Needham, Massachusetts. The building itself opened its doors in 1960 and has since served as a junior high school, state police barracks, and now as Needham’s largest elementary school. The physical structure sits on 60 beautiful acres abutting protected wetlands. The grounds are complete with large play structures and many playing fields. The wetlands provide an amazing site for bringing our curriculum to life and the size of the building and its facilities attract many community programs including community theatre, high school theatre productions, and community youth sports.

The Newman community is extremely proud of its strong academic programs, its wonderful student body, its engaged parents, and its dedicated, talented staff. The student body is a diverse, creative, and energetic group of about 800 students. These 800 students encompass pre-school through grade 5. The Newman School houses two district wide programs, the Pre-School and the Early Learning Center. The Pre-School provides a rich environment for Needham children ages 2-4 while the Early Learning Center provides highly specialized services for students with special needs in grades K-2.
