New Providence School District Reviews

All Categories
New Providence has some really great teachers, especially social studies and language arts teachers. It's a very competitive atmosphere. The music department is very strong, especially the marching band. The guidance department isn't incredibly helpful but they have ago of amount of resources for students (you jus have to find them on the website).
Review New Providence School District
Overall I am glad that I attended New Providence High School. There were many outstanding students there and some of the teachers were fantastic. Many programs were strong too, which instilled a lot of pride and enjoyment. On the other hand, there were also teachers that were annoying, unnecessarily difficult, and just outright strange. Also, the community wasn't as diverse as I would like it to be.
I was enrolled in the New Providence School District all my life, I currently just finished my freshman year of college, and the two main critiques I have for the district are its use of iPads (a terrible decision) and how non-diverse the student body is.
