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!

I loved this school. It greatly prepared me for college! There were a lot of friendly people, both students and staff. It was a joy to walk around and know a lot of familiar faces. It was a great way to find you passion with the vocational programs. I was involved in Culinary Arts, and this sparked my passion and helped me create a brand new a tightly knit family.
