Newton Country Day School Reviews

I have been at Newton for the past 8 years. The school encourages its students to be involved with clubs, sports, leadership opportunities, and service events. The curriculum is rigorous but enriching, and teachers are always available for help. I would like for NCDS to embrace political diversity so that students can be open about their opinions and engage in meaningful discussion. I also feel that the college preparation did not provide as much guidance and helpful support as I would have hoped.

Most of the teachers are incredibly friendly, helpful, and always willing to meet with you for one-on-one help. The school lacks in diversity but it is evident they are actively working towards this issue. Overall I've really enjoyed my time here, I've had amazing opportunities and the school really pushes you to be successful with rigorous academics and a supportive school community.
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.
