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.

Newton-Conover was my home growing up. The community was tight-knit and very supportive of one another. Everyone was involved in school one way or another whether it was through sports, clubs, or even volunteering as tutors. There was never a time I was worried about being prepared for my next chapter in life, which is college. The entire school system made sure each student had equal opportunities to get connected with higher level academics. There were designated college days where students were able to apply to schools and scholarships with the help of counselors. I do not know of many schools that take the time to sit with students to help plan out their future, and give great guidance in doing so. Without the Newton-Conover school system, I would not be in the outstanding place I am today.
The environment is absolutely wonderful! I love the school in general. The teachers are such nice people that help with whatever struggles that keep you from doing your work. They understand and try to work with you. I haven't yet had a teacher that was rude and inconsiderate to me or other students. I would definitely give this school an A+ for such great patiences and the education they give to the students at Newton Conover.
