Newfield Senior High School 4

Posted May 07, 2013

The strengths of this school are its small size, involved community & parents, & staff/faculty that care. A new principal has raised the bar for the students academically, behaviorally, & increased pride & self respect. Weaknesses are that it being a small district somewhat limits some of the available elective courses. For example, no German, etc. The school district has, however, partnered with local colleges to get high school students college courses while in HS. Regarding the comment made by another about consolidation of districts. This is not an interest of the Newfield district but rather something the State Ed department is exploring for all its rural districts as a way of cutting costs. In my opinion, there's little chance of this happening unless there is significant change in the community's desire to remain independent. I would like to know more specifics regarding the comment that the management lets things get "worse and worse every year." By several measures, things are improving educationally. I do know of some grumblings because of recent changes encouraging the students to achieve their best -- sometimes changes take some time getting used to.

I've been around this school for a while and it is the center of the community. We are very involved and watch closely over things. I hate to see how teh management is lettng it get worse and worse every year! And now they talk of consolidation with Ithaca district. Why do they want to throw out our school?
