My experience was interesting, not only did I learn a lot I experienced wonderful challenges. Made new friends, played sports, teachers were respectful, and most importantly had the time of my life. Basically, this school was my foundation, the root of my education, they encourage you, and don't get me started on the sports! The coaches put the education first and give thought in the athletes life.

Newcomb High School just isn't a regular high school, it's like a big family since everyone knows each other and everyone treats each other all the same. We all get along in one way or another, and everyone has something to do here. There are those who focus only on academics, those who play sports, those who are in clubs and those who participate in other activities provided at the school. Although the school is fairly small everyone is provided with the resources they need to help them achieve. And even though our school is "in the middle of nowhere", the teachers and staff all seem to enjoy being here which in return makes them eager to teach and change the lives of their students.
My experience with Newcomb High School is an experience you will probably not mostly feel at other schools. When people come here they tell us like we are all connected in a way life one really big family. My experiences were great we have great teacher/staff, good classmates, some good parents who will take you in as their child even though they are not but that is how strong our community is at Newcomb we all stick together and do not go anywhere. There is this saying that once you're a Skyhawk, you're always a Skyahwks.
