Newton County Reviews

Newton is nice in some ways but then in others I feel Newton County neglects kids futures by not giving more to the community for these kids in Newton County to really grow from, it's all about a hearsay or a connection. These kids here are very limited to what they can obtain or what some authority thinks that child deserves instead of the child having the resources and choosing what they want to do with that information.

Newton county is a nice place to raise a family and have a nice quiet are to live. But if you are looking for diversity and a community willing to grow and go with the times, Newton county is not it.
I love this history here. The fact it’s called little Hollywood.. you never know who or what is being filmed here! The fact we get together and have awesome Christmas and New Years traditions!!
