If you wish to be in an academically competitive environment with amazing facilities and resources and are interested in pursuing higher education, Newton North will prepare you amazingly well. The counseling staff is great and most teachers are very committed and dedicated to making sure their students are mentally and socially healthy and prepared for life after high school. On top of this, there are many opportunities for extra curricular activities from JV and Varsity sports to theatre, art, music, computer programming, social activism and community involvement. In terms of diversity Newton North is very accepting for anyone with disabilities all kinds and of differences in gender orientation, gender expression and sexuality. Although in terms of race, and religions other than Atheism, Christianity and Judaism, the school has some room for improvement. Over all I have found myself extremely prepared, both academically and socially in college and in the "real" world.

Overall, Newton North High School provided me a strong secondary education. There was ample opportunities, extracurriculars, classes, and clubs to join. There was always something going on, from sports games to theatre productions. The proximity to Newtonville was also extremely convenient, as there were lots off-campus food options. While there were some faults with the school, such as with the minimal guidance counselor meetings and help, overall it was a great experience.
Overall, great school. Library's policy could improve... As a senior currently undergoing the college process, Newton North has prepared me very well and helps everywhere possible. Though it is a fairly competitive high school, it challenges students to do the best they can and take difficult courses. With the availability of many Advanced Placement courses, students are prepared for college early and, on average, do well on the SAT and ACT standardized tests.
