My experience with NHS was a learning one. Trusting in teacher's was a very difficult ability when their best interest wasn't students successes. Multiple teachers have been accused with inappropriately interacting with students. But the athletic program taught me to work as a team with individuals and feel apart of something, unlike the overall feeling of being at the school.
Newark High School was a decent place to attend high school, for its location. The teachers cared, but the students did not. The administration failed to create a safe environment, and the school's facilities and culture were in a poor state, to say the least. However, there were enough options that if you seriously pursued them, you could be ready for college and get a decent education. Other than that, a relatively standard public high school I guess. One final note- I will be graduating valedictorian so I cannot say that I experienced the worst of the school, but I did hear about it and it was truly horrendous. Honestly, there's nothing going to be done about the state of this school and others for a long while.
I have had a very positive experience so far. Because of a traumatic event that happened to my mom when I was in 5th grade, I began to suffer from panic attacks. Every year after that, my new team of teachers where all made aware and they had team meetings on how to help me get through and cope and they made every resource available to me. I can't really remember any teacher that I didn't feel comfortable approaching and talking to. I am also a completive diver and when I made it to the Sectional and State meets, I was very humbled when I saw teachers, coaches, the athletic director and even the school superintendent show up to support me! Recently I suffered a concussion and all my teachers gave me extra time and help in catching up on my missed work. I believe the teachers know all the students and care about their success. They are very involved in the classroom and in our clubs, and they support our academic and athletic accomplishments. I've had a great 3 years and I look forward to my final senior year!
