I taught at this school for 10 weeks as a long-term sub. It s a great school because of its strong administrative team and the collaborative nature of the teaching staff. Principal Pete Schulz runs a tight ship, and he clearly communicates his expectations to the students. He and the two deans command respect from the entire student body because of their no-nonsense attitude toward discipline problems. In addition, the administrative team has worked hard to properly use intervention time. No matter where each student is academically, the staff pushes students up to the next level by providing appropriate, challenging enrichment activities. The eighth grade teaching team is a very supportive environment to work in. The eighth grade staff holds regular meetings, and the administration gives each team of teachers the power and the authority to function as an individual unit. New London itself is a somewhat small, tight-knit community, and this school mirrors the community that it serves. Students (for the most part) are proud of the school that they attend, they display school spirit, and they respect the building by keeping it clean. --- Tim Weldzius

I attended a 7th grade boys basketball tournament and the parents were extremely rude. They were laughing at our team and stomping their feet and just showed horrible sportsmanship. I was extremely disappointed in New London fans!! Not a good experience for the opposing team.

Bullying is a big problem in the School District. My brother has been bullied in school for years and the Administration has never done anything about it. It's been non-stop harrassment from day 1. Don't expect teachers to intervene, because they don't. My family has been forced to move out of state and put my brother in another school because it has gotten so bad.
