The things that I like about Newberry High school is that you get a chance to experience different things and also build a relationship with the staff and all of the students. Also the fact that the school participated in getting foreign exchange students helping them see the difference in education here in the United States and where they live. Newberry High School allows a great faculty to help the students that may have problems with graduating or passing there grade in general. The one thing that I would like to see change is that all students are more involved into school activities and also finding a way to enjoy school. Not all students like coming to school but some come to school to get away from things at home that they are facing and at school it’s the only place where they can be themselves and make more friends.

I enjoy some of the teachers and how they teach us but i do not like how the school treats some students. For example girls who are more on the heavy side get more targeted for dress code and girls who are not do not get the same consequences as girls who are heavier. Then kids who are Hispanic certain kids and sometimes teachers can be a little racist and rude. Especially with inappropriate comments for example telling kids to go back to their country and asking them for their green card and that they are in america so they need to speak English. Some kids don't have respect for others or themselves. Overall the school is good.
Newberry High School is a good school because it is small and everyone knows everybody. Newberry High School is not a perfect school though because there is a lot of disrespect but that is due to the disrespectful children. The food is not the best, it could easily be better. The overall staff is good because the teachers are kind and they listen to what the students have to say and they do not talk down on the students. Overall, Newberry High School is a 4 out of 5 stars.
