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.
.Middle schools are in need of renovations and approach to student involvement. Because of the socioeconomic security had by a large majority of the town, the student populations tend to be unappreciative and at times, judgmental. Strong education and very PC school system, though large class numbers, competitive nature of student body, etc can be daunting for some students.
