I love Newton. While the workload can be stressful at times, the teachers are available for help virtually all the time, and are very flexible when it comes to moving assignments if a student does not have enough time. Newton allows for its students to pursue any activity that they are passionate about, whether it's a club, community service, a sport, the arts, or academics. Newton has many fun traditions and the dynamics between grades are very friendly. While the grades themselves can be somewhat cliquey (as most high school grades are), the girls all love each other. Newton has prepared me so well for college and I will miss it dearly.
I highly, highly recommend Newton Country Day to any prospective parents or students who want a loving environment where they can get a great education as well as loving and accepting environment.

Everyone is noticeably passionate and want you to learn the material. The teachers know that you're capable of mastering the complex lessons, so they don't give up on students despite complaints of too much homework or work that seems too difficult. Once a student builds a relationship with her teacher, she learns the benefits of going for extra help or asking for advice. Although, I have one aspect I dislike, which is how restricted the classes can be. For instance, information that is taught seems to be particularly targeted towards material on unit tests or the AP instead of being willing to surpass those limitations. Still, I understand the reason behind that format, for time is finite and this is not yet college. Otherwise, teachers are great at promoting discussion, at making students think more creatively, and at raising our capacity of learning. There's no doubt that the teachers at my school have contributed to the person I am today, and I am forever thankful for them.
Going to an all girls school for the first time changed my life. Coming in as a freshman, I thought that I had relative confidence in myself and could depend solely on myself for academics. Little did I know how much I had to learn and grow. Slowly I matured from a student who didn't participate much in discussions and didn't like to voice her opinions into one who verbally encourages her peers to persevere and is limitless in her numerous questions in class. Undoubtedly, Newton Country Day has taught me the power of meeting with teachers, leadership, and slowing down in order to make wiser decisions. As a new student, I had a great motor but one without direction, and now, with the guidance of my school, I am racing but in the right path. Indeed rigorous academics are a critical part of having a strong education, yet through my experience, I grew as an individual, contributor, friend, and teacher myself. Although many of the retreats contained many tedious reflections, those activities subtly helped me uncover how much more of the unconventional, resilient, persevering, creative, and curious person I am today. Thank you Newton Country Day School.
