New Underwood School District Reviews

2 reviews
I have had a great experience at the New Underwood School District. I am very involved because New Underwood had given me the opportunity. There might not be hundreds of clubs to join, but the ones we do have are friendly and fun. People are pleasant and enjoyable to be around. Additionally, sports are a blast because people do not have to try out for a spot on the team. There is such a small population that class sizes are small, which makes it easier for teachers to bond with their students. Overall, it is a friendly environment that others should come and see.

New Underwood School District is very unique. It's small class sizes allow teachers to give each student more attention this helps all students improve. The activity options and classes are very limited in this school. There is also a high staff turn over rate which sometimes makes it difficult to keep the school running smoothly.
