Newburgh City School District Reviews

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.

NECSD is the most diverse school system I have ever seen. The district is working hard to improve conditions throughout all of the schools. The administration in the high school made students feel rather elementary, but with the help of strong-willed students, that will soon change. I would like to see better food in the schools. Healthier food. Serving sugar-filled cereal bars to students for breakfast at 7 am is not healthy. I really want that to change.
Highschool experience was manageable, I was content with most of their teacher staff and their willingness to help me through the courses. Since the school almost always struggles with budgeting the lunch would be a little pricey sometimes if you didn’t approve to have free lunch and some classes were cut especially in the arts department and it was never so consistent unfortunately. But most of the staff tried their best possible, especially my counselour, to get me to where I am now despite the challenges and hardships.
