The school offers amazing opportunities and great academics for the students that take it seriously, which most do. The administration, though, can be difficult at times and are very stubborn. There is also very obviously major favoritism here. It is definitely harder to get through this school if you have not been here since Pre-K, if you are a woman, or in any other minority groups.

We would choose this school again because of its academic excellence and the feeling to belong to a big family. Everybody is friendly and welcoming!
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.
