Newton North High school has so many opportunities to put yourself out there and get involved. There are many sports and many clubs including Mock Trial, Italian Club, Archery Club and so many more and the best part is that if one doesn't fit for you that you were hoping they had you can always start your own! The teachers here are very open to meeting with you during the day to get extra help and they always want their students to achieve. Overall the school is very welcoming and always wants people to feel equal and comfortable by having many different days that bring attention to specific groups of people. For example; religious days, body confidence days, awareness of mental health days, BLAC day, and many more. You can also find our principal welcoming students outside the school with a motivation quote for the day whether it be in the rainy weather, hot weather or even when it's snowing!

Most defined by its well-equipt campus that allows for unique hands-on learning opportunities despite it being a public school. There are several "businesses" within the school (Café, Graphics, Auto, Theater, etc.) where students can learn trade skills, and gain work and leadership experience, in some cases with monetary compensation.

Teachers can be hit or miss; connecting with upperclassmen to decide classes to take it common and generally a good idea.

Given the *relatively* high-achieving student body, NNHS readily offers many APs and Honors level classes. However, student achievement is well varied.

The student culture is a mix of entitled and woke. The majority take their resources for granted, while those who don't shine very brightly. Student organizers are responsible for the myriad of events throughout the year including 6+ student-directed theater productions, cultural education days, and rallies in response to current events.
Newton North High School is a great school! The teachers are understanding and will help you with your problems. There are many clubs to help you find your community. The students here are nice and open minded. There is always a staff member that you can find who can help you with any problem you have. Newton North will help you prepare for college, you can find help from either your teachers or college counselors.
