Newton Public Schools Reviews
Many teachers, textbooks are mostly up-to-date, school cafeterias have edible food but are highly priced, high schools have drug problems, teachers are mandated reporters but regularly ignore physical and emotional abuse in the higher grades. Infrastructure varies a ton, most of the money goes to elementary schools. Bullying is a problem in the elementary and middle schools but is harshly punished in high schools. Students are well educated and informed about mental illness in middle school. Health curriculum is better than most districts but still vaguely rapey
Great school with a wonderful teachers who make a difference. The school is very rigorous, offers a lot of electives, has incredible facilities (two theaters, fine arts studios, great photo lab, automotive and woodworking shops, swimming pool, and other top notch athletic facilities). The college counseling program starts early on, and it has been very helpful for my school selection and application process. Overall I have felt very supported by my teachers and the school in general.
Newton Public Schools has high quality education and is very inclusive in its approach to teaching. Teachers are usually strict, but to the point. The schools have little bullying and problems, and students are very diverse, and polite/civil to one another. The amount of clubs, activities, sports, and programs are so vast, wide, and creative, and have some of the top teams of the country. Students are always supported by the guidance councelers and other staff members-- no child is left unheard.
