A new administration faculty is needed. Newburyport High School has a lengthy record of not taking care of its students properly. At Newburyport, half of the teachers are great, the other half of them hate their jobs. The biggest plus side is that the school is beautiful on the outside. There is no student parking lot. Newburyport's school lunch is not the best but they do have a sandwich/wrap/salad bar which is a good alternative. Newburyport High School does little to prepare students for standardized testing. The library at Newburyport is nice and so is the gym.

Amazing school, faculty, and extra curricular activities. And the sports are great! But the school is very stressful and puts a lot of emphasis on homework.
In my opinion, Newburyport High was an amazing overall experience. For the most part, every teacher really cares about your success. Some specific shout outs to Mr. Littlefield, Mr. LaChapelle, and Mr. Sheridan.
