The upper elementary, which houses grades 4-6, was built in the 1970s and has an open classroom setting. The 4-6 building has an auditorium that seats approximately 300 guests, and features full stage equipment, catwalks and dressing rooms.

Through 1989, the Black Knights were part of the East Suburban Conference. Starting with the 1989-90 academic year, Newbury entered the Chagrin Valley Conference, which includes much larger schools such as Kenston, Chagrin Falls and Wickliffe.
