Improved graduation rate

We are pleased to see, after further investigation, that officials at Newton High School found the right records and now know that Newton High School’s graduation rates are indeed up, and, in fact, exceed state averages.

All of us who pay taxes or have children attending our local school system have a right to expect our county's namesake high school to lead the way in academic excellence.

We also hope that lessons have been learned by school administrators about keeping accurate records that affect our local schoolchildren.
