Their school nurse SUCKS. She makes the injured students basically do everything themselves (get icepacks, clean up, etc.) One day my daughter came home with a bright red head from hitting it on the concrete while playing soccer. It was bad. I was mad because it was so bad she could've had a conclusion and the school nurse didn't even bother tote me know! Another time, the same daughter, came home with a total or 6 ticks in her hair. My daughter was scared when she found one in her head herself (which happened to be engorged) and went to the nurse. She checked through her head and told her there was no more. Which obviously there was! (and she still didn't call me about it!) UHGH JUST FIRE HER ALREADY

Almost all of the teachers are nice, knowledgeable, and more. But there are a few teachers I prefer not to work with because I either don't like the way they teach, or theyre just plain rude. But overall I love the teachers here and that's probably the best part of west newton.
While almost all after school things are free (except sports)

There aren't very many choices. They have tutoring but sports is not their strong-suit at all.
