Newbury Park High School is a fantastic school. I'm not saying that it is perfect, nothing is, but I can say that it is one of the few places where I feel safe. The teachers that I have had have all been polite or funny. Some may be quite strict, but they all will give you any chance they can for you to succeed. It is a large campus, with a large open quad. The school dances are intense but so fun. I regret not going sooner! It is a good sports school, one of the best around, with strict but fun coaches. NPHS accepts who you are as a person and will help you fit in if you feel uncomfortable. I highly recommend going to Newbury Park High School.
Review Newbury Park High School
The teachers at this school are very invested in the students. They not only work to develop them as students, but also as people. The teaching styles are always very engaging and various tactics are used to aid students in learning and comprehending concepts. Most teachers at Newbury Park are encouraging to students and very approachable to communicate with. They are understanding and will work with the students if they ask for more help. Most teachers are accepting of students' ideas. Many teachers attend sports games or activities or work events to support students in their extracurricular activities. However, some teachers are very bias in their grading when it comes to social, political, or other views. They grade purely on whether the ideas presented in the assignment align with their opinions on the topic. Aside from this, the staff at Newbury Park is absolutely wonderful and works hard to give students the best education possible!
There is a wide variety of extracurricular opportunities at Newbury Park High School. After school, students can participate in just about any sport. From baseball to football to water polo to volleyball - we have it all. We even offer lacrosse, tennis and more. For a student that prefers a more creative outlet, we offer theater, choir, dance and band.

At lunch, there are a wide variety of clubs available to students - over fifty! Whether a student is interested in computer games or community service or faith, there will be a club for them. We also offer clubs that are not offered at most schools, like fencing, horseback riding and mountain biking clubs. Our students at Newbury Park High School appreciate all that our school has to offer and we take full advantage of these extra curricular activities.
