I honestly love my school. I love every single one of my classmates, and I'm incredibly happy to have spent the last 6 years at NCDS. The community is really the best part of the school, and the sisterhood you form with the rest of your grade (and the school, really) is so unique and special. Although the teachers can be somewhat hit-and-miss, there are plenty of excellent teachers (Dr. Tam, who has retired, Mr. Adair, Mr. Szilvasy, Ms. Krier, Ms. Rock, Ms. Tyler to name a few!) that are always around after to school to help. The resources at Newton are amazing, and I've made great relationships with my teachers. The college guidance office is also great, and because of the small nature of the class sizes, you get personalized and one-on-one time with the CG officers, and they get to know you quite well! Overall, amazing experience and I wouldn't trade it for the world.

As a senior, I have a love-hate relationship with this school. I love the traditions, retreats, and small grades/classes, yet I am not impressed with a lot of what NCDS does. They put their political beliefs on display making the environment uncomfortable at times, fail to provide good lunches, have a mediocre college office, and has recently put diversity at the center of everything. I understand diversity and inclusion is important but NCDS had taken it to a new level by not accounting for middle-class families by raising the tuition to an unrealistic amount and only providing financial aid to minorities. Little by little NCDS has taken away the fun aspects of it, for example making the juniors and seniors sleep over the school after prom, revoking senior traditions, and over exaggerating small incidents, especially in younger grades. However, I do love the teachers, my friends, and the memories I have from NCDS. I truly believe I will miss this school when I leave.
Newton Country Day has great academics, kind girls and teachers, and a structured curriculum. It lacks in diversity, awareness of other races and classes, mental health awareness and advocacy, and a wider variety of courses. I sadly do not remember a class that was taught by a person of color. I also witness segregation in groups of girls. White, upper-class girls make up a friend group and minority, financial aid girls make up a completely separate friend group. Everyone is congenial and friendly, but intermixing of these groups has not been addressed.
