Newburgh City School District Reviews
Attending Newburgh Free Academy - North Campus was the best decision I ever did when choosing my high school. I will not lie and say I had it easy in social matters because I didn't ,but who really starts off high school being best buddies with everyone. Overtime I made friends who are the realest ones in my corner. The friends I made weren't only through classes but also through afterschool programs, dance team, and being in a school club. I left North being educated in some of the classes I am currently taking in college now. I also graduated high school with a back up career to fall on due to being in the certified nursing assistant program. Newburgh Free Academy was wonderful to me and I would suggest it to anyone younger than me.
The Newburgh City School District is a very large school district with over 700 students per graduating class. One aspect of the school district was the diversity. Students ranging from being African American, to Hispanic, to Asian. There was a little taste of everything. I feel this is very important to education as it gives a deeper insight to how the real world actually is. Everyone will already be used to seeing all types of people, no matter their race, skin color, or sexual orientation. None of this will be foreign, as the students have already experienced it at a young age.
At NFA I had an amazing time to get to meet new friends and I believe it's the people that make the school so interesting. Most teachers are very fun to work with. I never really got into sports but the reputation for them have definitely been all but great. My school was Newburgh Free Academy North Campus which was much smaller than the Main Campus and offered Nursing and Law Enforcement electives, which is what I went there for. If I had to change NFA it would be there academics. I would suggest to add more useful subjects and make them mandatory. Classes like Self Defense, Standard Living, "REAL" Economics that involve paying bills and taxes that we all eventually deal with either aren't mandatory or just aren't an option. Students should start learning important stuff like this so they can be ready for independent life. Overall, NFA is an amazing school but classes we are forced to take like "government" are not going to help us sustain ourselves when we are on our own.
