    "Its a really great school. Lots of freedom, lots of amazing classes and the teachers really do care and teach you a lot. Teachers really want you to succeed. The diversity isn't AMAZING but you click and bond when you find the people like you. They have SO many support systems from college and career counseling (a place where i was at almost everyday.) to classes where they fit EXACTLY your level needs. The campus is actually really nice and has a lot of seating for each grade (the l-bench, senior commons, etc). But, the only thing is because the school academics are so amazing, there is A LOT of homework and A LOT of testing. Of course being a highschool, you can't really say "but i have a math test this day" because the classes don't coordinate that easily. Faculty is nice and you feel safe talking to them. But overall, you will learn a lot and you really enter college with more school experience than most high schools."

    "Overall, I am grateful for attending Newton South. The teachers and faculty care about your success and do prepare you well for furthering your education. The academic workload is rigorous and a sense of competition is present at South. If you take advantage of the resources and make your High School experience what you want it to be, then South won't be a stressful time. The food is not the best, but it does not need to be."

    "Newton South High School is home to a competitive environment, where the majority of its students strive to be well-rounded and successful. While, many students aim to take the highest levels of courses possible because it "sounds good," it's important to take a step back and truly enjoy the courses that are being offered-- that's what I'd like to see change."
