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.
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.
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.
