Newton Pride Foundation
The Newton Pride Foundation was established in 1994 to strengthen community involvement in the schools and to support educational programs and projects which will ensure educational excellence in the Newton school district.
The foundation operates independently from the school district with the goal of generating and distributing the additional funds that are needed to enhance the quality of education of its students. It encourages educational excellence through creative teaching, student achievement and community - school partnerships. Its trustees are business and community leaders who promote high quality public education.
