My experience was good. I had a lot of personal issues going on at home. I always had a person to go when I needed someone to talk to or give me advice on. I like how the teachers care about you and wants you to succeed in life. Most teachers would pass you just to get rid of you, but the teachers here at Newton High School care about you and your education. Two things I would like for Newton High School to change is the teachers need to be more prepared of themselves before they teach the students and go more into depth with information. The second thing is the teachers need to teach the students to be prepared for college and the outside world.

Throughout my four years at Newton High School, I have found that although the school itself may not be perfect however it is still a good school. Newton has different programs for students such as: sports for athletic children, band for musical children, and various programs like Beta for academic children. This school has a staff that wishes the best for your success and help complete any goal that need to be met. The teacher do more than just educate as they mentor the students and act as an educational parent by keeping them away from trouble. The school also has an administration that makes sure you are provided with every bit of information need to ensure that students pass their state tests and become successful graduates of the school and later from college.
Newton High School sports program is very successful program, but the children put more into it than their academics! I would love to see teachers that are trying to teach the students instead of being their friends. All together the school needs to be rebuilt.
