Awesome school! My son just graduated and he is so intelligent he is getting offers from the top 3 schools in the world! I owe it all to Newsome! If I could Id give it 17 stars!

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 ...  Read more

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 ...  Read more

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 ...  Read more

At first I thought this school was going to a OK, I was wrong. Teachers are poor, students are stuck up. Also it is an outdoor school.

Last year I was a freshman, (sophomore next year). I believed the rumors that Newsome was a preppy/"Sweet Valley High School". But they're wrong. There are some stuck up people but that is expected. People are nice. I came from a small school and I only knew maybe 4 people. I leave Freshman year with ...  Read more

I graduated from Newsome in 2008, and I absolutely loved my experience there, even as someone who wasn't a part of the "in crowd". Academically, Newsome is great, but I think there is too much emphasis on AP classes, even for those who can't keep up. I'm graduating from a good college now with honors, ...  Read more

My daughter is currently a senior and loves Newsome's academics and athletics, which she participates in. The AP classes offered are excellent and there is a wide variety of elective classes to choose from. The teachers are wonderful, only one or two over the past 4 years that weren't very good. The ...  Read more

I attended Newsome High School from 2006 to 2010. It has an expansive course catalog, including numerous Advanced Placement and Honors classes. Many of my Advanced Placement teachers were outstanding and very experienced with teaching the content and engaging the students. The administration often took ...  Read more
