Newtown School District Reviews

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.
Review Newtown School District
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!!!!
Newtown High School is filled with amazing teachers that care about their students success. If a student needs help they make time before and after school, as well as during, to meet with them. Although there is not much diversity is definitely an accepting environment. There are countless clubs, community service opportunities, and sports to take part in. It is easy to get involved and meet new people.
