Newaygo High School gives opportunities to their students that other schools don't. The teachers push to motivate you and help you reach your potential. They provide time for the students to receive help, whether it's personal issues and or college stresses ect. As a new student, I feel welcome and I believe that's most important about attending school. I know that if I take my education seriously, the teachers and staff will too. The academics are phenomenal. It's also very diverse. Everyone has a place at Newaygo High School.

Overall, Newaygo was a great school. While they could use some work on bullying prevention and how students with mental health issues are treated, I believe Newaygo prepared me for college. I had many resources, including a college advisor and college ambassadors, that I was able to access. The teachers are really knowledgeable about their subjects, and most are willing to help students outside of class with both academic and personal issues.
My experience at Newaygo High School has been amazing. We have great students here and they are all very friendly. Our school is a small school, but we all get along and come together when someone is in need. That's one thing I love about our school is we will all come together if a family is in need or trouble. I would change one thing and that's to get more teachers to extend our classes to a different variety.
