My son and I agreed that he should transfer to Newton-Conover High School halfway through his sophomore year based on the reputation of the high school. My son has had amazing experiences at NCHS, including the opportunity to take over 40 hours of college credit courses through their Summit program. Our family could not be happier with teaching and learning, athletics programs, and the personal touch from the principal, teachers, and coaches. We are so glad to be part of the Red Devil Nation!

Being a Newton Conover High School senior has been the best 4 years of my life. From walking into this beautiful culture my Freshman was so exciting to me personally, the teachers/staff are amazing and are so understanding, definitely will miss the awesome memories that were created here during my 4 years at NCHS!
I have had the best years of my life attending Newton-Conover High School. Now that I'm here, I couldn't imagine myself attending any other school. My teachers are great, I have many friends from all different backgrounds and have the opportunity to join many clubs. I know that I'm on the right path for college when I step through the doors every morning. I feel safe at my high school, knowing my peers and teachers have my back. Newton-Conover has Chromebooks in every room, which makes online learning super convenient. Not only does Newton-Conover provide a great academic environment, but also extracirrulars that build strong qualities to better individuals. I have made countless unforgettable memories playing soccer under the lights with friends by my side and my family in the stands. At Newton-Conover club members are expected to serve others in the community before we serve ourselves. Newton-Conover High School is where dreams can become a reality.
