Newburyport high school is a beautiful school in a picturesque town. Sits on high street just moments from the waterfront covered in it's ivy walls. The education is top notch and the facilities are in good condition. Offering up some sporting activities such as cross country skiing! The town has a lot to offer as well, safe neighborhoods and many excellent places to enjoy a delicious fresh caught meal.
Being an alum of the gorgeous school often makes me feel grateful having the privledge to grow up there.

Really enjoyed some of my teachers, they were engaged and engaging! Many available electives to suit any interest. If specific AP classes (or others) were not offered at the school, there were online HS courses available. I was able to take advantage of the online HS and enjoyed the opportunity. There are after school options for gym as well as arts, in order to allow students to fill their schedules with courses, these options are highly desired.
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.
