Newtown School District Reviews

We chose to move to Newtown in 2009 primarily due to to reputation of the school system. We wanted to ensure our son was attending a good school in a town where he felt connected to the community, and where he would have an opportunity to prepare for his future. The high school counseling staff is top notch, especially when it comes to preparing students and parents for the college search and application process. The entire Newtown district is filled with amazing teachers, counselors and administrators who genuinely care about students and families.

I enjoy the environment of the classroom setting. The school is up to date and has a lively environment that is great for learning. I believe their only downfall is that some of the teachers do not engage the class in learning in a new and interesting way, which may make the sessions seem dry. Overall, the administration understands the students and negotiates events that allow the students to have fun while maintaining a professional manner.
My review of the school district is : the superintendent is outstanding always keeps parents and family's informed!! The teachers are concerned for students and available with intentions to help students concerns!!! Always having students in mind they offer all kinds of services for information and after school help!! They boost moral and try to offer as many opportunities for guidance. Speaking of guidance ,the counsellors offer knowledge of opportunities out there for all our needs and community services also. I have had great experiences with the Newtown school district and would encourage others to take advantage of services or extra curricular help if needed! They really are there to help the student ! And the high school has many assistants to help with college questions and advice !! Great job Newtown school district!!!!
