    "Both of my kids went to Newtown High. From a extra curricular activity point of view, there is a tremendous amount going on, and all your teen needs to do is join. From an academic point of view, the teachers are excellent, and if your child wants, they can get a lot out of it. It really depends on the child, and you as the parent. The school really does have it all."

    "Newtown High has so much to offer. Having transferred my daughter from another high school to Newtown, I can honestly say NHS is a cut above the rest."

    "An Excellent School! I am very impressed with Newtown High School. I think that the most important factor of a good school is the staff. Having 1 child now in college and 1 about to graduate from NHS, I can say that the teachers are incredible and have prepared my children well. The teachers are motivating, encoraging, promote creativity, individuality, responsibility, and maturity. They respect their students and the students respect them in return. My children are polar opposites in personality (one quiet/the other outgoing; one into music/the other into sports; one a perfectionist/the other a great multi-tasker), yet they worked hard, are proud of their achievements, and enjoyed school. The class sizes are not large. The school and school board policies and procedures are reasonable and are adhered to. Although the staff turnover for Principal has been high in recent years, it has not negatively impacted the"

    "I loved Newtown High School, I never had one bad teacher. Every teacher made time to help their students if they we're struggling and knew their students as individuals. The athletic programs were phenomenal, I participated in cross-country, track, and lacrosse, and loved all my coaches. This was an amazing High School and they really help prepare you for college and a good successful future."
