North Newton Junior/Senior High School Reviews

Administration is hit or miss at our school. Several unnecessary replacements seemed to just be for the school board's personal gain. It's like our small town school is just dictated by the big names in the area without the students' best interests in mind.
As for academics, we have had both the best and worst. Teachers have left on extended medical leave which has hindered many students in the long run in the math department. Some teachers were rather uninterested while others were rather involved and dedicated, resulting in an average score.
We are a mostly white population thus diversity is lacking.
I personally feel unprepared for college despite counselors' efforts to send scholarships out to juniors and seniors. It is difficult to meet with them, and concerns about scheduling college affordability have been overlooked.
Despite it all, school spirit is high, sports are going great, and many of the clubs are involved in the community.

This school and the entire school corporation has made several changes for the better! The curriculum is changing, school safety has improved, and so has technology. The cafe/kitchen is brand new, and over the summer there were several upgrades to all of the schools.
This school is great with the experiences from the dances to seeing the staff and administrators out at the games supporting there students and others is great also, seeing that the staff is getting involved in convocations with the students such as a volleyball game between teachers and students to help raise money or just to have fun. I would choose this school again, just because there is so many memories from bad to good, there is just so many that make you want to restart and relive it all over again.
