Newburgh City School District Reviews

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.

I've lived in Newburgh for about a third of my life this place is quite beautiful but gives poor education and safely for students. Through out my time living here I've been bullied, failed classes, and felt unsafe. Many students have become illiterate due to uncaring teachers and their environment. When I was in the fifth grade I did not know how to read and comprehend my reading. However, I have no learning disability, student in the area are treated as if they are a number, as if nothing matters but the score on tests. Many students have complained and given information on how they feel about their environment. As well as how they are being taught, but authority take it as if it is the student who has the issue. Not taking it into annotative that the adult they hired is unclassified to teach young adults. For how I would change this system is by giving help to the students who need it not just tossing them to a side as if they are nothing.
I have been a student of the Newburgh Enlarged City school district all my life, and it’s been an exciting ride. I always endeavor to succeed academically as I reach towards my ultimate goal, which is attending college following graduation day. The clubs, extracurricular activities, and events I’ve attended and taken part in have made my high school experience all the more joyful and memorable. As a junior, I reflect and realize that there’s always room for improvement. I’d like to see a change for the better in the food quality, parent involvement, and supplies specifically for the music department.
