I have been there for a few years now, and its really not as bad as people make it seem. Yes there are pot heads and stupid fights but all schools have that. What i got from going here is helpful and supportive teachers, who dont put alot of pressure on you to be an a+ student, great electives and fair rules. Granted yes the schools a bit crammed, ecspecially in the halls. But all in all its a pretty nice place to be.
Please do your family a favor and don't send your children here. As a former student, let me tell you, all this school is 60% wanna-be thugs, 20% drug addicts, and the rest are the normal students who barely get by as it is. THERE ARE SECURITY GUARDS EVERYWHERE. Why? because they're fights almost every week, if not every two weeks. There was once a day when 4-8 fights happened in one school day alone, nicknamed "fight day". more than half of the fights are staged because they "want to go home early" seriously. not a fan of this school, glad i moved.
No air conditioning and lots of students do drugs. Not a fan. School needs serious updating. The hallways are cramped and classes are overcrowded. Teachers emphasize on getting by instead of excelling. No motivation..
This High School provides the sports, education and challenging academic programs that creates a rich environment for a kids to succeed.
I have to say I love Newfield High School. My son is a straight A student and was often not challenged in the past. He is doing wonderfully now. The teachers are great.
the staff and teachers here really care and do much for the community,
this school is very unorganized and it's punishmets for student's in my opinion is not acceptable
My son was in school here, and wasn't doing well. There is too much emphasis on getting by and discipline, and not enough emphasis on excelling and goals. He is now in a different district and is doing great. Midlle Country District is not one that I will miss.
I love newfield its a fun safe enviornment every school has the problems but newfields problems are nothing compared to other schools in the area!..GO WOLVERINES
nice small classes? thats a good joke. theres about 32 kids in many of my classes. this school is a joke it looks terrible, we have no money, the kids are higher then the grades. no pride or motivation whatsoever
Newfield High School is a wonderful environment for students -- a place where it is not difficult to feel at home. There are tons of wonderful elective classes available, and not enough periods in the day! The budget doesn't give a lot of room for improvement of the arts departments (the focus is mainly on sports, unfortunately), but department leaders are fantastic at making do with what the school does have. The teachers are excellent, intelligent, and top notch. Not only are they great educators, but great influences as well. They're extremely friendly and open to parent involvement. There could be more parent involvement, and I really wish some parents would take some time to get involved with Newfield. Newfield is a great school and my daughter's experience there was amazing, and something she will never forget.
There are many academic classes to choose from, especially electives and honors classses. The teachers are enthusiastic and very eager to help the kids succeed. They welcome communication from the parents, which is something I did not find at the Middle School. The Music department is in the top 100 in the country and there are also many other extracurricular activities to choose from. I would like to see more parents involved in the school.
Large enough school to emcompass more elective classes, marvelous music department with many extracurricular activities that give students the opportunity to be student-run.
Middle Country and especially Newfield could use some more community support and a little sense of pride.
Great school, security high, teacher are one on one with parents. Sports are good and my kids say the teachers are nice. School is very clean just upgraded, and new wings have been added.
