Take the first step to give your child a foundation for life.



Our History

Newgrange is a nonprofit educational institution with over 35 years experience providing learning opportunities to students with related learning differences. We are an internationally known and respected educational institution for people with learning disabilities. Newgrange delivers state-of-the-art services in a cost-effective, financially prudent manner.

The Newgrange School of Princeton, Inc. was founded in 1977 and is a State of New Jersey approved school for students ages 7 through 21 with language-based learning differences. The Newgrange School Campus is located at 800 North Road in Hopewell, NJ.

History of the Newgrange name:

Newgrange takes its name from an ancient site in Ireland. Approaching it, the visitor sees only the rolling hills common to that area. Under the hills of Newgrange, however, lies a prehistoric site of remarkable artistic and historic significance.

Just as there is little indication of the hidden treasure within the Irish Newgrange, people with learning disabilities often give no outward indication of their extraordinary intelligence and talents. Newgrange helps bring these treasures to light!

Our Mission

The Mission of Newgrange is to improve educational outcomes for people with learning disabilities and to empower them to become accomplished, dynamic members of society.

We will achieve this through evidence-based instruction for our students and expert professional development for educators.

Accreditations and Certifications

We are accredited by the New Jersey Association of Independent Schools and the Middle States Association, CESS. Education is offered for children grades two through twelve, up to age 21, who have a diagnosed learning difference. Additionally, our Ann Robinowitz Educational Center is available to those outside of our school for specialized tutoring, dyslexia services and support, and screenings and assessments.

Our staff includes a wide range of specialists such as learning difference consultants, speech and language pathologists, occupational therapists, and social workers. We also have conventional teachers who work with our students in math, science, social studies, business, art, music, physical education, and health. We require all teachers to undergo continuing education and specialized training in Orton Gillingham and Wilson Reading System®, metacognitive skills, LETRS, Project Read, and other multisensory teaching approaches.

Learning at The Newgrange School

Small student-teacher ratios give our students the environment needed to achieve learning success. Teachers at The Newgrange School understand learners’ strengths and weaknesses and work diligently to find means that lead to effective learning pathways. Our wide range of programs and academic offerings give students a chance to explore and soar while growing in big idea thinking.

If your child is struggling academically because of his or her learning style, The Newgrange School can help. Our core language arts, science, math, and social studies programs feature evidence-based instruction that leads to real-world success. Call today to learn more about our programs or to schedule a tour of our Hopewell, NJ facility.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging:

The Newgrange School has a responsibility to clearly and publicly state our commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) within the culture of Newgrange, a division of the Laurel Education Group.

As an organization that values language and word choice, we want to be precise when we talk about DEIB. We’re grateful to the University of Washington for its glossary of relevant terminology and have adapted our first three definitions below from the guide.

  • Diversity: Encompassing a wide range of identities, including race, ethnicity, gender, age, national origin, religion, disability, sexuality, socioeconomic status, education, marital status, language, veteran status, physical appearance, political ideology, life experiences, etc.
  • Equity: Fair treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement for all people, while acknowledging that there are historically underserved and underrepresented populations and striving to identify and eliminate barriers that have prevented the full participation of some groups.
  • Inclusion: An environment in which any individual or group can be and feel welcomed, respected, supported, and valued as a fully participating member; one that embraces differences and respects all people.
  • Belonging: The feeling that an individual is an important member of a group; that one readily identifies as a member of the group and feels a sense of connection, security, and affinity within it.
