New London-Spicer School District Reviews

Top notch small school where students know everybody. Now at 125ish students per grade. Very friendly, helpful staff and teachers that obviously love their jobs. HS teachers bring real world experiences into the classroom from previous careers. High school offers numerous college credit and AP courses, and has an ever-expanding selection of career and technical offerings. Top athletic and arts facilities, with new turf football field and gymnastics facility, and one of the nicest performing arts centers in outstate MN. Well-renowned athletic programs provide great experiences for student-athletes. Isn’t much negative I can say about NL-S other than it does lack in diversity, but the district itself can’t be blamed for the make up of its population. Glad we got “stuck” in New London years ago and decided to stay and raise our children here!

NLS is a great school to make freinds. The district is smaller than most schools in the area but our goals are huge! We take great pride in our athletics and strive to succeed in them each season. And we are growing in arts and music! NL-S has just recently added an auditorium/performing arts center attached to the high school building. We have many programs that help u meet whatever goal u want to meet. We have college courses and pseo and support the use of those. The only problem with NL-S is, the cliques and separation of people. It’s becea we take pride in althetics. For example, the football player are all groups of friends while the hockey players are a depress group and the people that succeed more in academics are in there separate groups. Personally I didn’t have this issue because I fit in with all people and love to be apart of each side of my life (academic, sports, and computers).
NL-S High School is set in small town, MN. It is well known for it's sports teams. Many professional people reside in this lake area. College courses are offered for those who excel in academics and most of the instructors do a good job. There are plenty of extra-curricular activities such as band and theater. There are NO safety issues but as with any teen population, you will find some teens indulging in illicit activities. Parent involvement is notable. Class sizes are small and help is readily available. Although there are plenty of clubs, activities do not abound. There are several employment opportunities for teens in the area which is a plus. Diversity is the biggest issue in the area. Nearly all students are Caucasian with only a handful of Hispanic or Black students to be found throughout the system. Overall, NL-S is a desirable place to attend school and it's size does not hamper it's academic stature.
