New Providence School District Reviews

My experience in New Providence School District has been a mostly great, but occasionally frustrating experience. The teachers are fantastic at this school and obviously care about their students. The administration, on the other hand, is oftentimes quite controlling of everything such as prison-like security, hall monitors, and restriction on students rights. The guidance department is winning or lose depending on who you get. The music department is amazing at this school despite the School board's attempt at shrinking its budget. Overall great people in the school just the people running the school are a bit too controlling.

I have lived in New Providence all my life and am currently a high school senior. This high school is a very small school. It has 500 kids max and most of them I've known since kindergarten. There is no diversity whatsoever, its mostly rich white kids. There are a lot of asians though. The people here are very much in your business and you can't do anything without everyone finding out about it. If i did not have my group of friends it would be very lonely here. The academics are very good and taught me a lot about writing. Overall it was a fine experience.
The New Providence School District is a small district, but it’s so intimate that everyone knows each other. I love the close relationship everyone has with each other since the school have smaller class sizes. I really do wish that they would update the interior design of the schools though. I find the furniture to be very bland and bleak.
