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.

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).
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.
