Newport-Mesa Unified School District Reviews
As a student, I'd say that my experience with the NMUSD has been decent so far. I love that my school is so diverse, not something that many other schools can say. The staff are mostly helpful and the teachers–at least, the ones I've had–have been incredibly supportive and encouraging. However, I wish that my school put a bigger emphasis on protecting our environment. We place great value on our academics, athletics, and counseling, however we seem to have let go of our environmental efforts. We no longer have a recycling program, which I believe is unacceptable, as students often have papers and plastic water bottles to dispose of throughout the schooldays. Also, I would like to see more fairness between classrooms, like every teacher having AC.
This school year was my first in the Newport-Mesa School district and I am so grateful that I changed districts. My high school is a smaller school compared to the others and I love it. There is a the students all know each other and are kind to each other and the teachers are more dedicated to the students education than any other set of teachers I have ever had. Amazing school district!
Newport Mesa is a good district who tried to always take care of the students and provide us with a great education. I have been in this school district since I started school up until now. I am grateful and thankful for the resources they have provided me with these past years. My siblings are also in the same district from me and through them, I am seeing how the district keeps progressing.
