Founded in 1903, Isidore Newman School is a co-educational independent school that serves high-achieving and highly motivated students in Pre-K through 12th grade. In 2015 we opened Green Trees Early Childhood Village for children ages six weeks to four years old.
Newman is located in the heart of Uptown New Orleans blocks away from Tulane and Loyola University. With a current enrollment of just over 1,055 students, Newman is the only accredited co-educational, non-sectarian, independent day school in the city of New Orleans. Our School enjoys a national reputation for excellence and achievement in academics, athletics, and the arts with our students matriculating to the most selective colleges and universities in the country.
At Newman we believe that the most fundamental element in teaching and learning is the relationship between student and teacher. We recruit nationally to attract the most talented educators. Our students engage and thrive at Newman because our teachers challenge them and care deeply about them as scholars and people. Essential to our school culture at Newman are high expectations in all endeavors and all areas of the School.
