Principal's Message

Heather Darrow in red dress

Welcome to Newport Coast Elementary, Home of the Coyotes!

Being part of Newport Coast Elementary is like being part of a family, and I am honored to have the opportunity to serve this outstanding educational community! 

As a school, we value diversity, high expectations, and balance which is required to teach the whole child. At NCE, it is clear that each child enters school with unique assets and needs, and we strive to create an atmosphere where every child is successful. We are committed to providing a strong academic program for our students in an emotionally supportive environment. 

NCE has strong parent participation, which is seen in our PTA, our Foundation, and our numerous parent volunteers. With the support of our families, we pride ourselves in providing unique and varied enrichment opportunities for our scholars. Whether students are learning about presentation programs or coding in our Creation Station, playing in our gifted orchestra, participating in art lessons, or simply developing essential scholarly habits, our families are there to help enrich our programs along the way!

As a Newport Coast Elementary Coyote, you are a gift to our community and we are happy you are here! Wherever you are on your journey, I know NCE is a great place to learn and grow!

Have a great year!


Heather Darrow, Principal
