Newton High School has helped me become the person that I am today. Staff and administration make it their goal every day to give students the best possible learning environment. With abundant opportunities to take honors and AP classes as well as get involved in CTE pathways, I have discovered my loves of journalism and medical science. Aside from academics, counselors and teachers encourage students to get involved in clubs and activities, resulting in my title of Editor-In-Chief of the school newspaper. Due to supportive teachers, administration, extracurricular activities and academics, I believe that I have received the best possible education to prepare me for college.

Newton High School gave me a great education, and provided me with plenty of opportunities to expand my learning outside of the classroom, volunteer, and become a leader. Newton offers all sports that KSHSAA offers, and has over 40 clubs for you to choose from. Clubs are also easy to create, which is what some friends and I did while creating ping pong club. That is one example of the many opportunities one had. The school has an amazing fine arts (mainly Band and Jazz) program, as well as CTE programs. You can connect with teachers, of which know the source material very well. Although the non honors/AP track students are sometimes seemingly left behind.
I have enjoyed so far the opportunities of the diverse courses available in the school such as the engineering, music and language departments. As well as the school's robotics team and scholarship awareness opportunities for high school seniors. Lastly, the availability of reaching out to the community via the clubs and organizations available in Newton High.
