Newton Conover City Schools Reviews

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.

I am a student at Discovery High School. Discovery is a great school that demands for their students to produce top level work that would be acceptable at higher institutions; such as, colleges, specialty schools of higher learning, and other academic programs past high-school. Although my high-school is great at what it does it is underfunded and provided with the leftover technology that the district doesn't know what to do with. I would like to see our academic success be aided by more funding and more advanced programs for my fellow students.
I have enjoyed my time in Newton-Conover Schools, however my high school has gone through a lot of changes. I preferred when it was a small school, but it has continued to increase in size the entire time i've been there, and when I initially joined, it was supposed to be a technology/science school allowing for more opportunities for college. I feel it has gone away from this ideology, however I am hoping with inclusion of a new principal, even though I will have graduated, it will begin to return to what it once was and made it so great.
