My experience in the Newton Community School District has been amazing! No matter where I am in the district I am welcomed with a smile. My teachers have always push me to do my best and go above and beyond the state average. While playing sports in Newton, my coaches have always told me that it isn't about winning, it is about representing the name on the front of your jersey. they have also taught me to work hard and to be disaplined

My overall experience was tremendous! The fun activities scheduled throughout the school year were always fun times, the teachers were great as they always helped you whenever you needed it and they showed everyday that they cared about your education and lastly the athletic events that were put on were spot on. I had a great four years of high school at NHS!
I would like to see more diversity in this school district and some better facilities. However, there are many resources to prepare you for college, which is helpful. DMACC is nearby and you can take many college classes there to get credits. I've had very good experiences with the teachers at Newton High School and I've very rarely had a bad experience with them. Overall, it's a pretty decent school district.
