I attended Newark Central High School. I LOVED THE SCHOOL! It was very diverse and it embraced the cultures of all students. All faculty members are actively involved in all of the students life and sometime go extra miles to make sure each student has equal opportunities. However, after we changed principals our lunch went bad. The only time we actually got a decent meal was around Thanksgiving time. Another thing is the area. The area of Central high school is bad but however, the faculty memebers walk the kids to each and ever bus stop near the school to ensure safety.
Personally, in my school, there is a lack of resources: newfound textbooks, technological devices, printer ink, etc. Textbooks are extremely old and sometimes hard to follow up on. In the library, sometimes there is no ink. Sometimes the teachers have to buy paper, pencils, etc for their own classroom when NPS doesn't provide them with it. The education is terrible for average students, so that they aren't encouraged to even try to learn. The teachers really only care about its AP students. In the administration, there are mainly males, thus there isn't any diversity there.
