What I liked about Newark High School the most was easily the teachers. You can tell a lot of them are dedicated and hardworking individuals, determined to help you however possible. The problem I have with the school, though, instead lies with the administrative faculty. I feel they overlook the concerns, or criticisms, of the students and focus on only what they think is best. This leads to a lot of good programs being overlooked and underfunded because they don't see them as important. Overall, this makes students feel unimportant and forgotten in their own school. While the great teachers help pick up some slack, a definite management change is needed.

I have been a part of Newark High school for all four years. I feel that the district does attempt to do its very best for the students attending the high school. I myself was able to grow within the system and environment that they had created. I was able to achieve my goals and gain knowledge for my future. But what I wish that they included was more interaction with individual students and individual student focus. I feel that large class sizes left some students to be left out of conversations and discussions. The district also focused more on those on sports teams than those accomplishing just as much within clubs or with amazing grades and effort. I believe that more individual focus instead of on large groups and "stereotypes" would allow for more students to feel included within the school and district.
Until my the end of my senior year back in 2019, I did not realize how special this school meant to me. Every staff member works so hard to provide success for their students and strives for a better community. With a new and growing garden, various clubs and activities, and interactive programs, this high school treated its students well.
