Newcomers High School is one of the worst schools I have ever seen in my life. Children complain about the way the security and the school staff treat them. students are discriminated through their race and ethnicity and gender by school staff and other students as well. Teachers have trouble in speaking English to the point where students don't understand them. The security uses nasty language with students and the administration staff deal with grave situations without following the disciplinary code. I asked one student what is the thing that you really hate about this school ? He answered : "Teachers give good grades to the students that come from their countries when they never show up to their classes, and I always get an average grade although I try hard, and also the administration staff always see discrimination and bullying and never do anything about it if you're from the same ethnic background " . Safety isn't provided to students by any staff member there.
Best school of this state of NY. As a former student i can say that for the first time in years, i was finally enjoying school and wanted to learn. the diversity is amazing and you don't hear trouble like the typical American schools. Very friendly and encouraging teachers and administrators and staffs.
A sterling school which always encourages students to go for the best.The teachers are courteous and always wish you good luck.
Im proud parent one of their students:) he is senior,apllied in to three colleges-he got in to all of them:) Many thanks to great teachers and all of coworkers
one of New York's great strengths is the education and success of immigrants. Newcomers is unique and special shool where motivated young immigrants can excel and thrive. The teachers are the most dedicated, creative and committed professionals. I am proud to vote for this most exceptional school. I am a counselor and I have worked with this excellent school.
Newcomers is a school of students from all over the world who learn to live together. I learn so much from the students every day. They are committed, caring and eager to improve.
My school,i like it, it has most respected teachers and nice student. it sure is america's best high school ever.
I love the diversity of its student body and the dedication of its teachers.
I have 2 daughters, 17 and 19 who are both starting their senior year. It has been a great school for them both. They came 2 years ago from Ecuador with limited English, now they are fluent. They are working on their SATs. It is nice to have a special school just for kids new to the country.
