Newark Senior High School Reviews

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!
Overall, I had a good high school experience. Newark definitely gets high marks for their teachers. They will go above and beyond to help a students, and their classroom doors are always open during their free periods, lunch and after school.
I thinks Newark is lacking in the safety and discipline area. I'm not saying Newark is not a safe school, but their are issues that are brought to the school's attention and they want to deal with it eternally. Sometimes these matters are criminal and the police should be involved, but the school doesn't like any negative publicity and so they try to handle things themselves.
Newark has spent a good chunk of money on their athletic facilities, especially for football and lacrosse and soccer. There is great team spirit in Newark and the teams try their hardest, but they could probably look more in depth at some of the coaching staff.
