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.
I loved the small town feeling and that I could go through the halls knowing everyone's names. I also liked that students are treated more as adults than students to ensure meeting maximum potential. Do feel that the teachers need to be a little harder on students to ensure they are prepared for the future.
