Newark City School District Reviews

My overall experience with the Newark City School district has been great. I have lived in the city and have been enrolled as a student in the district since I was able to be in Kindergarten. My favorite part about the district is how involved the teachers are with their students. The teachers genuinely care about their students learning experience and it shows. Every year that I have been in school here, I have had a teacher who blew me away by being very caring and just overall an above-average person.

The academics could be better, I feel as though we are behind other schools. In some classes I would say we are where we should be, but others I would say not. The school is lacking in diversity, I’d say it’s 80% white people 15% African American and 5% other. The college readiness category is pretty good. There’s a lot of work done with a call to college starting in about 3rd grade. And in high school there is a call to college office. You can make appointments, and ask them for help on anything.
My school has mostly been an average school. It doesn’t have the best material or the best resources. Sometimes, my fellow classmates scare me because of the unpreparedness they are in. My performance is considered high honored in my school and I wish they would take some of the students inputs into consideration. Overall, it’s all about the enjoyment and education of the students.
