Newton High School is a great little school. I have been attending Newton High School for four years now and it has gone by smoothly. Since it's a small school, the students and teachers are really connected. Teachers help you with any work you have and are always there for you. The staff is also friendly and makes the atmosphere comfortable and cozy. This really makes learning effective and easy. This school may be tiny but everyone is well connected and there are supporters all around you. The food is decent and there are plenty of clubs and organizations that you can be involved with. Overall, it's a great school and I am happy I got to experience it.

Newton High is a very close-knit school. There are over 2,500 students and we are all treated like family. The athletics are excellent. The teachers are very vocal and not too strict. We have fun, but we also get our work done as well. Our administration listens to the students, as well as the parents. Being at Newton for my 2nd year has been a blast, my senior year will be even better. Go Rams!
This school is not the best and it doesn't have much to offer its students. Most of the staff is disrespectful and unhelp. The only way I made it to my senior year and graduating with honors is to make the decision to go to Newton Collee and Career Academy. This school lacks respects and regard for students. If you are someone trying to succeed in life and you do not play a sport this is not the school for you, because it is biased towards athletes. It is especially not helpful when it comes to scholarships or trying to find funding for college. Yes, they do put up a scholarship list but most of them are expired and old. My senior counselor was not helpful at all. I spoke with her 1 time during my senior year and that was during my senior evaluation that was done in a group setting with other students(no privacy).
