    "Newtown High School has never had the greatest reputation among High Schools. It is always discredited as a "problem school" or incompetent. Although this may be true to an extent, I believe this school is still a wonderful place. Not because of it's academics, but the environment and the people in the school are easy to accustom to. The students have been nothing but friendly to me throughout my entire High School career. Most of the faculty staff are friendly as well. Every morning the same teachers and I exchange our good mornings and hopes of a better day. The negative aspects of this school are easy to overcome when you embrace the brighter side of life at Newtown High School."

    "This school is wonderfully diverse. Hundreds of countries and ethnicities are represented. There are people of different sexual orientation and they seem to be accepted. There is little to no racism, since everyone is different."

    "Very few AP classes, which are scheduled on the same periods. I begrudge the fact that I had to give up an AP class I was recommended for because it was on the same period as another AP class that I wanted more. The other classes are relatively easy, and they don't challenge me very much. There are a few good elective classes but they could benefit from offering different classes. My workload is above average, kind of tiring at times, but I think that's because I take some of the more challenging classes offered."

    "Some teachers are amazing. They teach really well and go out of their way to help or listen to students. They inspire and mold their students to be better. They're also very fair and reasonable. But a lot are not. Thankfully I haven't been under a lot of these kinds of teachers, but I've experienced unfair grading. And poor teaching skills, like they don't even know what they're teaching. I have had a few who complain so much, about their job and the students, even so much as to insult their students. They make you feel like they don't care about anything past the measly paycheck they get."
