As a parent of a student who attends NCHS, I am very pleased with the academic programs offered to help my student (students) prepare for college. My child has enjoyed attending NCHS and participating in the clubs and activities offered. I feel that NCHS helped to prepare my child to be successful in attending a four year university. The school offers a variety of sports programs, clubs and activities for students. Student safety is of high priority. Overall, I am very pleased with my child's education at NCHS.

This is my senior year at Newton-Conover High School. It has been quite a four years, but I am taking each event as a learning experience. Many of the teachers here love their students. They truly have helped encourage their students learning abilities and have tried to make Newton an amazing place. Although, there are some that do not seem to care. They let you do what you want, and if you fail you fail. It’s that simple. However, in my opinion this is a good school to go to, but like every school you will attend their are down falls.
My experience was good at Newton Conover high school. I wouldn't say great because every high school has issues. Our issues were the cliche groups for example for band geeks, preps, and so on, drama, drugs, disrespectful, and smoking. What I liked about the High school was that I really didn't see no kind or acts if bullying which was great. Overall everybody knew each other and was friends.
