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.

I was a student of the Newark Unified School District back from Elementary School up until high school graduation. The amount of resources that this district offers is dwindling, yet they are painting their building and reenforcing their gates. The high school Career Center offers little to no help to students who are unaware how to take the first steps into a higher learning. I am a firm believer that placing the proper educational tools and resources is ALWAYS NUMBER ONE, everything else falls behind that. The paint can peel, the fences may fall but if you give the students the right books, help and guidance the district will succeed.
I've just been really busy this school year with college applications and testing. Luckily, I was able to get amazing teachers this year. They are making this stressful year more tolerable. I am disappointed by my school's inability to adequately help its students in the college application process, especially for first-generation students. Otherwise, I am having a pretty good senior year so far.
