Newton County Schools Reviews

The teachers at most of the schools in Newton county are wonderful. Most of them take a genuine interest in the students and their educations. The lack of parental involvement is noticeable. The district is zoned in such a way that it provides support, both academically and financially, for the schools in the areas with the higher income residents and the remaining schools are basically brushed aside. Once they actually get administration in to schools that cares about the kids and programs, that administration is "forced" out in order to further the careers of friends. Overall, great teachers, poor leadership!

I really enjoy the overall school atmosphere and social interactions that i have developed over the years. I have been within the Newton County System since kindergarten and I have meet some really nice friends and have known many teachers. The teachers have much respect for any student who resides within the Newton County System regardless of race, gender, ethnicity or background.
I am very thankful to have been nurtured in such a great county and would not recommend any other county over Newton County.
I like newton county schools because the teachers made the lessons interesting and pushed me to work hard. Newton county schools provides exposure to new activities, clubs, and fields of knowledge that you might never encounter otherwise. The school prepared me for real life. The staff works together, pushing themselves and the students to be the best. I would change the horrible lunch food but nothing else. I love my high school, I do not have a lot of dislike towards newton county schools.
