This school is Unsatisfactory in all areas ...Teachers, Principles and academic programs are insufficient to severely poor Parents should pay more attention and be more involved
I attend Newark. Newark high never use to be so bad but now it is worse than ever. The schools are all way too crowded. Although there are some caring teachers, more than half only care about what they are getting paid. The whole district can't even spend there money wisely and the levies never pass.
Newark City Schools are or I should say are an embarrasement to this city. I have kids in the system and we as parents need to pass the levy so that they can bring back the things our kids need.
The teachers at Newark are very helpful and caring. Koodos to Ms. Braunt-Web, Ms. Loomis, Ms. Ralph, Mr. Duffy, Mr. Freidly and Mr. Mooney. Very accomodating and go out of thier way to help students.
I think that if your student is gifted, or high ability, then they will do fine at Newark. I have been with other school systems though, and Newark, overall, does not compare favorably with them. But while I had a high ability student, I also have a child who does not learn in the 'don't question, just do it' kind of atmosphere that is in place at Newark High. They do not seem to encourage analytical thinking, and if you have a non conventional learner, you are not going to find much support here. There are caring people on staff, but maybe due to size, follow through for any task that you are told will be done is less than 20% in my experience. Children fall through cracks, and a parent would have to actually go sit at the school at least once a day to get any follow through.
hi my anme is kati and this is my fisrt year at newark high since im a freshman.. my first year here is almost over.. we have 23 days left and im kind happy. my first year here..has been great and i hvae many good memories to share.i would definetely recomend any parent that wants their child in a good school to bring them here.
Fabulous teachers, great fine arts and athletics. Lots of opportunities for students.
The comment about teachers not caring, and only worrying about how much they get paid is ridiculous. Students and parents should quit bashing the teachers and take some initiative. Your success is dependant upon your effort and if you are willing to try then the teachers are willing to help. On the other hand, teachers (especially at the high school level) are not there to hold your hand. Everybody faces problems throughout their lives and everyone has to learn to cope. This is no reason to say that is a bad school. The majority of problems that teachers have come from a result of bad parenting. If parents would monitor their children more closely students may do better. NHS is a great place to learn.
I am a freshman at Newark High School. So far, the year has been basically pleasant. Most of the teachers that I have are good, and they do care. The Newark campus is beautiful, and is very safe. I would certainly reccomend Newark High School to any parent.
I was a student at NHS for 2 years. I am currently enrolled at Licking county C-tec, I do agree with all of the above comments, If you set your mind to it you will succeed. For those students who do not want to be there then they are not going to do well no matter how caring the teachers are. My freshmen year i had a surgery and when i was out before and after the surgery my teachers were very helping in getting me caught up. Newark High School does have some very caring teachers and I believe it is just the same if not better then most High Schools. We do have teachers that do not care but if you treat them with respect then they care and help you succeed.
Did you fail english? *****There are very few teachers at NHS that care about the children mostly they worry about how much they are getting paid and how hard they have to work.*****
I graduated from NHS in 1999. I felt that it gave me every opportunity from athletics to extra curricular to advanced classes that helped me excel in college. It makes me sad that voters have caused many of those programs that helped me to become obsolete. I believe that Newark is a fine school system and I hope that someday I am fortunate enough to enroll my children in the Newark City School System.
I attended Newark Senior High in 1977. I felt it was a great school then and now. I am an RN. Loved the setup of the school. I felt this school made sure it had the best teachers available.
I am not a parent to a present or past student at NHS, but I am an alum. I agree with the comment in concerns with students who wish to do well and apply themselves. On the other hand, you have students who feel they are forced to attend school and potentially pose a threat as problem makers. I feel that those who apply themselves will make something of themselves and others will continue to maintain mediocrity.
I don't agree with the last coment. The teachers are always there to help you. The only problem we find in NHS are students who don't want to learn. They just go to school to cause problems. People who want to learn are able to.
There are very few teachers at NHS that care about the children mostly they worry about how much they are getting paid and how hard they have to work. My son was asked when is he going to quit school. His father passed away and he was having a very hard time dealing with it, but he had no support at all.
