Newark Memorial High School Reviews
NMHS leaves a lot to be desired. Although many of the teachers were great, there were several which ruined my confidence and desire to learn. Unfortunately the success of their students is not always priority #1. Sadly, a couple of terrible teachers can ruin a kid. So glad I'm done with that part of my life.
