Newton Public Schools Reviews
The teachers are great, very helpful! Many clubs and activities after school for every person. From video game clubs to recycle clubs to ultimate frisbee! New school so the facilities were very nice. When I moved on to college, a it was not as hard because I was prepared.
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.
