New Egypt High School is a wonderful school for students that wish to achieve their personal best. The teachers care about their students and make an effort to know them. Quality athletic programs keep students involved. The environment is one of pride and spirit in a small town. I love that students feel safe. The school staff and curriculum has prepared my daughter well for college and the challenges beyond.

I am a student and i feel like our school is a great environment to be in. Although i do agree with the other comments about the 'special' treatment for school athletes, we have young teachers that think nothing is wrong with it.

I am appalled by what I have read. We currently have no administration and that is why I could not comment on principal leadership. Our Board of education is dispicable and have chased 9 administrators away! Yes...9! In order for children to get into the top schools, sports and extracurricular activities are extremely important. Whether you agree or disagree...that is the truth. As a former administrator in a University, colleges want everything...the full package in a student. New Egypt is an extraordinary enviroment. The teachers value these students and it truly is a family atmosphere. We have an amazing teaching staff. We also had a top notch superintendent, assistant superintendent,curriculum administrator, business administrator, lawyer, 2 vice principals, principal and athletic director...unfortunately....they have all resigned or been removed within a 6 month period thanks to the new BOE. NE schools are great...it is the board we need to get rid of!

Far too much emphasis is placed on extracurricular and sport activities. There are some great teachers. There are also some that are playing 'school politics'. We need a change here if we are ever going to have true excellence at our High School

I would like to disagree with these comments- New Egypt schools are great in EVERY single way. Here at New Egypt, the teachers KNOW the students- they are not just number. Sports and clubs are great for college applications and many students are involved. New Egypt has great teachers, a great administration, and many successes that should be recognized.

Many wonderful caring teachers, but many who are too young and too anxious to be friends with students instead of an educational leader. WAY too much emphasis on sports, but lets get real here folks, after high school, sports for most becomes 'history' and education is what takes you places in life. I agree that the guidance department (while trying) needs LOTS of improvement and additional resources...maybe one less football coach and we can get some extra help there? Overall, not a bad place for your child to go to high school. Help your child and keep on top of everything - esp. the college search/application process - and you will be ok. My biggest gripe is the Principal - sets a very poor example in his personal life and during many situations that I have observed over the course of four years.

NEHS has tremendous potential but unfortunately it is not being realized. I agree with others here that the school is far too focused upon sports achievements. Guidance dept. is sorely lacking, needing more interest/action from counselors. Better leadership/vision is sorely needed to help this school become the star it can be.

New Egypt High School touts itself as the school of the future: prepping its students to be productive adults later on in life, while offering opportunities others don't get. What NEHS has instead done is this- prepped its students to be freidns with the teachers, perform lower than the already low standards being set, and percieve excelling as being an athlete. If half as much emphasis was placed on studies as in our football team, NEHS would be a wonderful place.

sure there are small classes, and the student to teacher ratio is good, but the low class offerings hinder a students real growth. students are either not challenged enough (being allowed to take lower level classes so they can be lazy) or they are forced in higher level classes because the middle ground is not offered. for example, there was no honors history class, therefor everyone who would have taken honors was forced to lower their GPA by taking a lower level class, or struggle in a more difficult class. some of the teachers their are not proffesional at all, they try more to be the students best friend instead of a role model, or someone to look up to. some of them are just as bad as the kids themselves. the people in the office are really unorganized and their people skills are horrible.

Principal does not practice what he preaches and is not a good example for the children attending. The school can be so much more. It does not expect enough from its students so it gets what it asks for.....average work!

This principal does not practice what he preaches. This school had such promise but has failed to give even 1/4 of what it promised to the community. The numbers are so much lower the expected quality of education had fallen short. Perhaps it is time for the powers that be look to make some changes to accomplish what they promised.
