    "I don't really care about these reviews, they are just a lot of fun to read. If you are considering Newsome remember that all of these reviews are from people at either end of the crazy spectrum, and to find out what it's really like you must speak to someone who actually went here. Speaking as a grad who went to two other high schools, Newsome was the best, not perfect, but the best you will find aorund here."

    "Overall, a great school, but their front office staff (Christina) is not very helpful. Rather, than answering my questions, she simply said, "Here's the website that will answer your questions." The administration should probably review the quality of service that is being provided."

    "Newsome High School is in a great community with families that are committed to education. I commend the high rate of students that go on to college! The parts of Newsome that need improvement are the Guidance Department and extracurricular opportunities. The Guidance Department seems overwhelmed with the number of students that depend on them. I have heard of so many complaints of the guidance counselors giving little attention to what is best in individual students interests when putting together schedules. My Daughter and I specifically made an appointment with Guidance before she began at Newsome to discuss her last two years of high school. She could not have been put in worse classes for her future pursuits and academic level. It was if they chose the opposite of what had been discussed and changing a schedule is not easy, even when it is the fault of their department. Extra curricular activities and clubs are not encouraged at Newsome like they should be and are at other schools. With the difficulty of making a sports team at Newsome, clubs and groups should be more available BEFORE and AFTER school for the general student body to get involved."

    "I'll admit that it has many clubs,but you HAVE to pay at least $16 for every club you sign up for. Also the guidance is frustrating. I was still changing my schedule three weeks into the school year and had to change it seven times. It was my senior year so I needed my classes for graduating and for college applications. Half of the teachers do not know what they are teaching so you have to teach yourself and most are too stubborn to admit they were wrong or put a curve on the test. I have been to TEN school and this has been by far the WORST."
