The majority of the teachers and staff at Newtown schools are committed to helping students succeed. Newtown High School offers opportunities for students to get involved in clubs, activities, and sports. The school also provides tutors and learning centers to support students who need extra help at any time. My guidance counselor at Newtown High School is fantastic and has been a huge help in guiding me throughout my high school career.

Newtown has some of the best academics and college preparations possible. There are entire semester long classes devoted each year to preparing students for the next several years of their education. The school has an excellent culture, especially with successful sports teams. I know of several friends who have said their parents moved here because the schools were better than in other nearby towns. I have been satisfied with nearly all of my teachers, and never felt like I was left behind. In general, the school is very well equipped and has good facilities. The lone exception here would be the somewhat revolting cafeteria food, but that is not a problem for me because I bring my lunch from home. I honestly do not know why other people don't do that as well, because I hear them complain about it almost every day. I feel ready for college and am confident I am in a good position to succeed.
At Newtown Middle School, I always felt close to my teachers and peers. The schedule I had always promoted hard work as well as autonomy, with the integration of a study hall. I always loved the teachers that I had, and felt close to them by the end of the year!
