Newark Unified School District Reviews
I was apart of the Newark Unified School district from kindergarten to my senior year of high school. My overall experience went pretty well, especially in elementary school and middle school. Although when I went to high school, we went through about 3 different school principle changes through my 4 years there. In fact, pretty much my whole senior year we didn't even have a principle at the school. Despite the lack of administration, I loved high school at Newark. The diversity was great and the activities were super fun; especially homecoming. The sports programs at Newark are truly great and the coaches are great too.
With my experience at Newark Memorial High School, overall, it is a great high school. Most, if not all, staff members and teachers will most definitely be there for you and will do their best for you to succeed. There are times where you feel like giving up and you’re emotionally wrecked, there is a counselor who helps many students with beings related to this. I play basketball, it’s honestly the best. You get to meet new people who become your teammates, your friends and FAMILY. Overall, students at this school work very hard & believe in themselves.
Newark school District is very unorganized, they don’t seem to get along themselves and have their stuff organized which affects the kids learning. Always short on teachers
