Principal's Message

“We will provide a safe a respectful environment in which staff, students, parents and community can work collaboratively to foster personal, social and academic growth. Together we will address new performance standards and provide the resources for all students, including English Language Learners, those who need Instructional Support and high achieving students, to meet high standards of excellence and be armed with the skills necessary to meet 21st century challenges and to be life-long learners and productive members of society.”
~Principal John Ficalora

In The Spotlight

For many generations since 1897, Newtown High School had been responsible for educating the young and eager minds of those who walk through its welcoming threshold. Newtown High School has a lot to be proud of. It has the good fortune of being located in the most diverse city of the United States, which gives the students a chance to discover and unite with those coming from another cultural background. It is also a school that consists of ambitious and intellectual students who are willing to do the best they can in order to accomplish their goals in life. It is truly astounding how Newtown’s vitality could go on for so long without becoming weary of the changing times, which is accompanied with new challenges. It is because of these striking aspects of our school that we are proud to say that Newtown truly “Towers above the rest”.
