Newtown High School Home


The mission of Newtown High School is to meet the academic, social and emotional needs of students. Our goal is to establish a nurturing environment where students from diverse backgrounds and ability levels will successfully make the transition from freshman to seniors who are college and career ready. We will provide an enriching, individualized and valuable high school experience, and set a precedent for academic excellence from the ninth grade to ensure that our students’ journey throughout high school is successful. Through our devotion to each student’s myriad needs, we will foster an environment of high expectations and a love of learning that will propel them through high school and beyond.
