Newton Country Day School Reviews

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.

I am entering sophomore year, my 6th year at the school, and I am beyond grateful for the opportunities I feel that Newton Country Day has given me. I think this school has so many amazing things to offer and all the faculty are constantly trying to make it the best that it can be by addressing many complaints or issues. Not unlike any other school, NCDS does have its troubles, although the students are competitive, the school does not foster a very competitive environment, which I find seems nice at the time but allows me to slack off in aspects of my work. They are also horrible in addressing disciplinary issues, the magnitude of the punishment given out hardly ever matches the issue they are trying to correct, small issues have unnecessarily large punishments while larger issues like bullying are sometimes swept under the rug, although bullying is not at all a common occurrence. Other than those two things, it's a very wonderful school and I would suggest it to anyone.
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.
