for such a small school, it's probably unimaginable that there could be such robust extracurricular involvement. almost all students participate in extracurriculars of some kind and if there's something that newman is missing, as long as you can find a sponsor (not hard at all) and some students to join, you can start it yourself. sports participation is huge (although fan attendance is more questionable) and our debate and choir programs are nationally recognized. other extracurriculars are continuously growing. the biggest barrier to extracurriculars here is that there are so many of them, you won't be able to do all of the ones you like.
even though newman isn't perfect, the positives are way bigger than the negatives and compared to other schools in new orleans (and probably louisiana) of the same excellent academic caliber, this is your best bet. although newman is a little lacking in school spirit, the community here is unrivaled. teachers, students, and administration have very close relationships and are always approachable and eager to help and the high school is small enough that everyone knows people in all 4 grades. newman is unique in that it is basically a second home to many students. its resources are unparalleled and always at students' disposal as long as they know where to look. students visiting from out of state sometimes call us "newman univeristy" and in a way, they're not wrong. take the honors track in high school and if you know how to persevere, speak up when needed, and stick with the right crowd, you can't go wrong with newman.
