Newport News City Public Schools Reviews
While attending Newport News Public Schools, I have developed skills in time management, organization, and decision making. The instructors helped me stay focused, along with my determination to succeed. Tutoring sessions were always at my disposal. The teachers pushed me to reach my full potential and had high expectations of me. Newport News Public Schools had many interesting extracurricular activities available for students to partake in. I enjoyed DECA, the Student Council Association (SCA), and the recycling club. Something that I believe could be improved in the Newport News school system is the food served at lunch. Students should be given a broader spectrum of choices in the cafeteria. In conclusion, I feel as if Newport News Public Schools provided me with a great high school experience.
Newport News Public school represents all people and all cultures. I am proud of a public school division that is willing to go above and beyond for its students. I have been afforded many opportunities to travel, compete, and present across the country. I believe my school district has prepared me for the future!
My experience with Newport News Public schools was an absolute joy. I started in the school system when I was in elementary school and continued into my senior year graduating with honors. The administrators and the teachers really pushed me to become not only a well rounded person, but a college ready individual that was excited to get to class in the big city. I would highly recommend this fabulous school system to any parent that wants their child to experience diversity, great education, and a safe place to learn more about the community and how to get involved. I can not thank Newport News Public Schools enough for leading me in the right direction and also teaching me the skills necessary for me to succeed in my college career. Now I am currently enrolled at Pace University in Manhattan NY pursuing a major in Commercial Dance.
