I am former student and I have to say the school has made significant improvements from the time I graduated in 2002. It doesn't compare to the highly rated Mission San Jose for example BUT it has everything a student needs to succeed. I would say it is up to the student to make the most of their experience here as the teachers and staff are great and supportive. From what I understand, there is a big reduction in issues such as fights, etc.

i am a student at this school currently and i am a freshman. i play two sports at this school and this school's sports program is awesome and well organized. The teachers are okay. overall do i feel safe at this school 80% of time yes but the gang affiliation with this school is kinda scary.

I feel like the responsibility to inform teachers and to make sure teachers follow my sons 504 falls on me. 1 month into this school year and his teachers were not aware he even had a 504. I received the new 504 in the mail to approve and sign a month after that. It seems like every year we have new administrator who takes over. Last year we had a meeting and it seem like the district tried to intimidate us by sending the head of special education to the meeting. They were not prepared, and I was glad I had my binder with copies of EVERYTHING. After that my son was pretty much given all the accommodations I asked for (as advised by a parent advocate I spoke to). I think the intentions are good but there is a lack of follow thru by NUSD.

Really good school. I didn't go here but my mom taught here and I got to meet some students, and they were really nice :) Wish I've gone here...

As a junior at NM, I must say that this school has provided me with all the articles of virtues and knowledge so far to advance me into my ultimate ambition. In all honesty, it is up to the STUDENT, I cannot stress that enough however, to extract the knowledge given by the teacher, and then study what they have inquired. There are a few notable teachers, specifically the honors and AP teachers, that only tolerate the best. The non-competitive environment allows the students to challenge themselves, rather than their peers, thus giving them the motive to succeed without stressing about the accomplishments and/or challenges others may seem to impose upon them. As for the teachers, they translate their awareness of the students into somewhat challenging tests. A majority of students, as I struggle to remain neutral, fail primarily due to the lack of ambition or that students share much in common in terms of lacking the alacrity of succeeding. These negative factors contribute to the school's overall standing as far as academics go, Above all else, education is an opportunity; a private school may compel the child to acquire certain accomplishments, but they cannot coerce the desire.

Compare this to most of the school, they are no where close. Generation is changing and so are the morals of students and the Newark community. I would definitely say this school is cooperative with it's students. I'm a Senior rightnow and I've seen this school transform to a much more safer and supportive school. Ofcourse thanks to the new principal Mr. Marquez.

I am a sophomore in this school. From what I've heard, compared to other schools, NMHS has 'everything.' From a broad range of athletic opportunities, to excellent Honors courses, and many extracirricular activities, Newark Memorial High has proven to be a great school. While it is, of course, not the best, you could certainly do worse. One problem would be, in a school of 2200, that it is hard to excel here. You are always challenged by other students who have the same dream as you.

Children get what they need from schools and a great thing about NMHS are the teachers and staff members who recognize that not everyone learns at the same pace!

I am a Sophomore in NMHS and I came from Elk Grove HS in Elk Grove, CA. I would say that NMHS is academically more challenging in that I came to my honors classes and was floored by the higher level of skills demonstrated by my classmates. I was at the top of my class back in Elk Grove, and I sure am not here in NMHS, students are kicking my butt and this is good because I am being challenged. In addition, the Media Communications Academy, MaST, Marine Science, Arts, and Theatre/Drama Programs are only a few of the programs offered here that aren't present where I came from and many other districts in the area. I am so thankful I transferred here as I can see myself getting better opportunities, and exposure to subjects and career options.

I think this school is a great place to get a great education. The staff works very hard on educating the students and the students are very welcoming as well.

as a sophmore at NMHS i can say that this school is not the best, but definitaly not the worst. Some teachers and staff members don't really seem to care much, but the ones that do, they care a lot. its not the best school, there are some fights and some achidemics are not that great, but for the most part, it is a fun schoot. the MCA and MaST programs are 2 of the best programs in the school. Definitaly look at the drama department too. NMHS is changing for the better, and trying to improve.

Newark Memorial is going in the right direction. They are beginning to implement Smaller Learning Communities, so that students are taught in a more meaningful way. The Media Communications Academy (MCA), Marine Biology and Drama departments are a some programs that have already been in place. My son is doing much better and enjoying his classes more since joining MCA. If your child goes to NMHS, get them into this program.

I'm currently a sophomore at nmhs and i think that this school is pretty good. Though it does has some flaws like, some of the teachers whom don't teach anything yet expect you to actually do good in finals, and the problem with gang related fights. I mean i'm not saying that this school is the worst, im also not saying that its the best. But coming from a girl who came from Oakland, this school is pretty good.

Newark Memorial is, objectively, not the greatest nor the worst high school. It has its appealing points and its scary realities. However, I find that the administration does listen to the teachers and students, and that they do, or attempt, to make vast changes in the environment.

Posted February 10, 2008

as a student in my junior year at nmhs, i have yet to see any significant changes with how things are being run. there are still 'gang related' fights yet nothing is ever done. the teacher i have this year havent done much teaching at all, and when it comes to cheating, oh buddy. many students have informed the teacher and he has yet to do anything except joke around with that group even more.

My son is doing fairly well in the school. Lots of parents show up for open house. They have a good variety of extra curricular activities and also the counselors are great. They even help the students with college prep.

Parent involvement is anemic when compared with high achieving schools such as its neighbor Mission San Jose in Fremont. We've witnessed parent participation at both schools and it's night and day. The lack of parent participation at Newark has contributed to lower SAT test scores, lower high school exit exam scores and fewer students attending top tier schools. The situation has not changed for over a dozen years and the outlook isn't bright.

Posted May 7, 2006

We took our child out of Newark Memorial HS (NMHS) last year and sent him to a $20,000+ a year private college-prep high school in Atherton, CA because the majority of NMHS parents and students simply aren't focussed on getting all its students into top tier colleges. Lastly, we don't have to argue anymore with the Newark School Board and the majority of the district's parents about the importance of excelling in standardized tests.

NMHS has been through a rocky period but has emerged with a strong desire to get back on track and provide quality education for students. A less than desirable WASC review has spurred staff to create and participate in a school-wide effort to review and update school programs and policies. A new energy and enthusiasm is present on campus. As morale all over improves, discipline and extracurricular activities have improved. The issue of safety is being addressed and improved. The campus is a much nicer place to visit or be.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
