Newfield High School Reviews

What I will always remember about Newfield is our school spirit. Our bleaches at our football games were continuously packed out, students had to sit on the ground. Everyone went wild for the halftime performances- cheer and kickline, which I participated in. The teams were like family, I will never forget the tradition of our group chants and pasta parties before every game. The teachers will always have a special place in my heart. They really care about their students and want to see them succeed, they're really helpful. If I could change one thing, it would be how administration deals with situations. My friend was getting harrassed by an ex boyfriend, and she thought the school would help her. Instead our grade administrator made them sit in a room together and sign paper saying that if one of them talked about it, they would get suspended. I didn't think that was right or fair. However, Newfield High School was a great school to me, I wish my senior year wasn't cut short.

I enjoyed my years at Newfield, I had many excellent teachers over the years. The staff is very caring and always there to help with anything. I have been on varsity cheerleading the last 3 years and it has been amazing. We have competed in Florida at the espn center and got to go world! I also belonged to varsity leadership group, and that has given me a chance to participate in great activities. I have made many great friends along the way. I am proud of the the school I come from and are going to miss my days there.
My experience with Newfield was overall very well. The teachers are for the most part very supportive and teach the material good. They are very caring and respectful. Although the lunches can be on the weird side sometimes (Last weeks hot dog cheese tacos), they always keep you on your feet. The new gymnasium, library and windows help the schools appearance. But most importantly, my education was incredible. As a sophomore, I am already able to take part in a college class as well as an AP. Next year i can take an array of different classes that cater to my interests. We have the option to take free PSAT's in order to prepare for the SAT's. The opportunities are amazing and it was a very nice environment.
