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

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.
Some of the best schools in the state! This school district does not lack in education, and has a plethora of opportunities for everyone. There is truely something for everyone here.
