Newton Unified School District Reviews
All my life I have gone to Newton and I have loved many things about it. I had amazing teachers and they all taught me well. I do notice though that the newer teachers don’t seem do teach as well as the older ones did, but I’m sure that is just because I am not used to them. Also another problem is the high school itself. It needs to be renovated in a great manner. When it rains we have to place buckets to catch the rain water and we constantly have problems with heating and cooling.
Great opportunities for students who want to do well. Some great teachers who know the material and give students great information, others who care more about coaching than teaching. Administration cares about some students more than others. Facility and resources are above average.
I am currently a senior at Newton High School. Throughout my years in the school district I have enjoyed participating on the dance team, in debate and many clubs. However, I have not enjoyed the amount of safety our administration has provided us with. Just recently, 7 high school students were arrested in a campus drug bust, as they were selling drugs at school. There are still multiple students who continue doing this, even after the arrests were made, and the administration seems to turn a blind eye, insisting they have taken care of the problem completely.
