Newton High School 5

Newton high school is by far one of the best in Sussex county. The young adults graduating from there are more than prepared for college and the real world. Newton had gotten a bad rep because of its location. People fail to realize it is a regional school with many different students attending, from many different walks of life which is a rarity in Sussex county. What some narrow minds see as a negative, I see as a positive. Learning is not linear. The most educated people know diversity in cultures and socio economics. Learning starts with an open mind. Which most in Sussex county undoubtedly lack.

My son attends this school. While the school,like most schools, has some very good teachers, some are less than stellar. My biggest complaint is the teachers refusal to hold their students to a higher level. The expectations are set low and as a result the students are actually encouraged to flounder.

I think this school is decent, but could be more challenging. You have got to be on top of your kids, as there are a few that run with a fast crowd, if you know what I mean. It is all of the things a parent worries about.

Newton High School is a great school. There is plenty to do and, because of it's relatively small size, great relationships can be build between faculty/parents/students. It's a great four year experience.

There is a lot of parent involvement and varied academic programs. There are good math and some good science programs, but in the areas of technology and agriculture, Newton distances itself. Sports and school groups are really well attended too.

Newton High School was probably the best choice that could've been made. The faculty and staff were intelligent as well as caring and the students really seemed to be fascinated by what they were taught. The music programs were top of the line and the sports programs were a nice touch too.
