New Milford School District Reviews
The female teachers are all very nice and helpful! Male teachers leave something to be desired in terms of teaching style and helpfulness. Administration needs to get better at their job; they don't intervene in any problems students bring up.
New Milford provides a rigorous academic environment for students of every ability group. More advanced students are able to take a variety of Honors and Advanced Placement courses, and students who struggle are able to take College Prep or remedial courses. The school offers a SAT preparation course, and a free SAT and PSAT is offered during a specified school day. Most teachers are willing to help you learn, however the science department teachers were less good at helping students succeed.
Academics are ok, depends on if you are in honors and if the teacher actually cares. Very little diversity except by class, many rich kids and many low income kids together. Love some of the teachers who care and aren't rude in general. Safety is ok too, a couple fights every year, maybe a bomb threat or two, but other than that its fine. Administration sucks, really just out to get you on anything. People kind of have pride in being in the school, but all of our athletics are going downhill, so it's a bit less. Clubs are either all afterschool or all in school, few worthy out of school clubs. Overall its ok. Fix the sinks and bathrooms for the student's sakes though.
