Newell-Fonda Community School District Reviews
Good teachers who care about students, able to take college level coursework. The band and drama departments involve many students who might not be involved in other activities. A bit too much emphasis on sports--more academic focus and clubs would be beneficial for students.
Newell Fonda has been a pretty good place to go to school at. Teachers there like to help their students. There are only a few problems I have encountered while attending. One of the problems I faced was that there is some favoritism with students. The school tends to let kids that are in football and other sports get away with certain things that normal kids cannot. There are also some staff members that like football so much their judgment is clouded. Besides those errors, Newell Fonda is the good place to go to school. We have our own track and field. We get our laptops at the beginning of the year that we can take home. When a student reaches the 7th grade you are able to take the laptops home. At the end of the year, you just turn them in.
Sports and athletically minded school. Other activities include band, chorus, drama and speech. Small class-sizes, good teachers, nice facilities for the middle and high school. Elementary areas are dated.
