Great school! Really learned a lot over the years. Interesting clubs and activities on campus, and other students are very nice. Teachers are generally good, although there are a couple that probably shouldn't be going to NPHS. Overall though, recommend attending!

I had a overall pleasant time at Newbury Park High school! The teachers were always willing to help and give extra attention to you when you need help, and the staff loves their kids. I hope that the school gets a better handle on how to have better school spirit, because that's one of the best parts of High school.
Newbury Park High School is a very advanced, diverse, and student-centered school. The fact that this school has an IB program is completely outstanding! the teachers and staff care for their students and the students gain a significant amount of knowledge every day.
