The Newton Public School system is great. All the students are friendly, the teachers are understanding. Great lunches compared to many schools and a variety of classes offered, especially in high school. My only complaint is the work load is a little heftier than I would've appreciated. Definitely more than some of my friends from different school systems.

Not very diverse, but very great education. Newton really works toward students being prepared for college and finding out what they want to do after High School. Teachers are always available for extra help opportunities, and try to help students succeed.
The Newton Public Schools employee highly qualified, dedicated teachers. The district strives to adopt new innovate teaching practices and programs. The parents are very much involved and contribute greatly to the success of the district as a whole.
