Newberg Senior High School Reviews

This high school rates average overall. Some great experiences with staff and coaches. Limited diverse student population. Would like to see smaller class sizes, more diverse elective class options. Would like to see post high school education encouragement emphasizing the benefits of post high school options including increased job satisfaction, decreased unemployment rates, increased total earnings. This could be a 2 year or 4 year degree, certificate or apprenticeship program.In addition to having colleges come to campus to talk about degree and non degree options, Newberg High School could join with the community and offer internships, work experience, job shadowing or maybe just an assignment where students have to ask questions of a professional in a field the student might be interested in.

I learned a lot in my days at Newberg Senior High School and enjoyed a lot of my time there. One thing I wish we had when I was there though would have been more understanding and more resources for students who needed help with counseling or therapy if they needed it, or guidance when it came to looking for colleges and resources for finding scholarships and such in order to make applying for schools easier and finding ways to fund higher education easier. I loved the music programs and the performing arts and theatre programs there. In those places and the fine arts classes is where I found more of my closest friends throughout the time I was there and some of the people that I still call friends to this day.
Enjoyed some parts of this school but over all it could have been better. Certain teachers are good but most of them are not good at their job and are bad at teaching, specifically the math department. The English teachers are really nice but the course work is not very good and at times it feels like you are learning nothing. The elective options are not very good due to low funding a lot of the good electives such as psychology and sociology are not offered anymore. School spirit is lacking as well very few people show up for sports other than football and do not participate in spirit weeks.
