Newton Public School District Reviews

3 reviews
Some things I liked about my school district was their ability to help those who needed it. When I first arrived in 4th grade, I was terrible at math, however, Newton Public Schools helped me out. They put me into smaller based group activities so I could have a 1 on 1 learning experience with my teachers. When I got to highschool they put me into the academic support program which has helped me immensely. Not only did I gain confidence in asking teachers for extra help, but I also learned to trust myself and my learning process.

The school has excellent programs like the project self-sufficiency. They offered after school day care for students in elementary and middle school for free. All the classes they offered such the AP and Honors classes are excellent and as a senior high school I have learned a lot from those and honed me for my college.
Newton High School is a school i was lucky enough to attend for my high school career. Going through my college decision process with Newton was made easily with the help ans support of my teachers.
