Isidore Newman School was founded in 1903 by Isidore Newman, a New Orleans philanthropist and founder of the Maison Blanche department store chain. It opened its doors the following year as the Isidore Newman Manual Training School (the name was changed in 1931).
The school buildings suffered damage due to wind, and flooding caused by 2005's Hurricane Katrina and was closed for two months. It reopened in January 2006, and by October 2006 enrollment fully recovered.
Newman's athletic teams compete in the Louisiana High School Athletic Association. The school fields teams for a number of sports, including baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, gymnastics, soccer, swimming, tennis, track and volleyball.
Newman holds 89 State Championships as of April 2016.
The largest building on campus is the Cotonio Palaestra.
Billy Fitzgerald, veteran science teacher and baseball and basketball coach at Newman and the school's athletic director, was the subject of a profile by alumnus Michael Lewis entitled Coach: Lessons on the Game of Life (2005; ISBN0-393-06091-8).
In May 2010, ESPN.com ranked Newman at the top of a survey of which high schools produce the best NFL players—even though the school had at the time only produced three NFL players—because of the success of the Manning brothers.
Newman currently has a student body of 1,005 and a faculty of 172, with an average class size of 15 students per class. Newman has 430 students in its lower school, 221 in its middle school and 354 in its upper school.
