Newark City School District Reviews

I am currently a Junior in high school. I've been to all different types of school in Newark; Catholic, Charter, Private and Public. I can say the schools all have many differences. In private schools; it seems like the schools' main goal is money. Depending on the school you attend, Catholic & Charter schools have something in common which is dedicated teachers. With dedicated teachers, students are more prone to excel because they know someone values their education & tries their best to help them succeed. However, in public schools-- there are a number of bad influences, teachers who could careless about students. Since public schools are government-funded people feel like they are guaranteed a stop, students and teachers. The teachers lack motivation for themselves and the students! I would suggest for a parent to send their child to a Charter school, although they give tons of work, it all pays of in the long-run.

I have attended schools in this district K-12. My experience has not been great. I was bullied in middle school and little was done about it. The schools themselves push so many unnecessary rules and regulations that do little to solve any problems within the schools. I was once sent to ISS for a day for getting a drink of water without a pass. The only good part about my experience was the teachers and my experience with the guidance office. They are good people, who passionate about kids, and it reflects I their teaching. Guidance gave me a hand when I had questions about college, and they do their best to keep kids in track to graduation.
Newark High School is a great school, with many opportunities both socially and academically. The teachers are very caring and the facilities are all modern and recently updated.
