Great school, everyone is very friendly and helpful. The small school gets along very well and offers a great amount of help in your academic journey. Some things aren't the most proper though, there are times of favoritism and the AP and dual credit classes aren't always credited to the students.

South Newton is okay, the administration doesn’t seem to stick to their word especially about bullying. But the teachers are caring and supportive.
Many teachers here genuinely care about the students and want us to strive to not only become more educated, but to also become a better person. They want us to be prepared for the real-world. I feel like some teachers are too strict at times, which honestly is not needed at times because we are old enough to know how to behave. Overall, this school is a great, small school which staff that genuinely care about everyone.
