They are the best school in the entire East Allen County Schools and they have a great purple gym that represent the color of the school. Go New Haven
students are not encourages to be involved in extracurricular activities and there is little selection. the classrooms are dark and most have no windows making it feel similar to a prison. desks are falling apart and some of them are dated to the 1960s. I'm embarrased to say i'm a 'bulldog'
I really do not think that this is a good platform to judge a school. Most people that complain about a school complain about everything. They need to look within and see if they themselves need to make a change. Children learn most from the parents as it should be. Set a good example. If there is a problem with a teacher set up a meeting and discuss the problem. I mean discuss not complain. If you go in complaining of course the teacher will be on the defensive. Honey gathers more bees than vinegar.
New Haven High School has a good enviroment but everything else is terrible. The food isn't that good the teacher's have terrible justice and disciplining not to mention the fact that the school is far below the state average on +ISTEP testing.
To much politics in school system. A lot more than any others. Very poor teachers with little teaching ethics. Teachers that dont want to teach!
The activities were great. I loved the coaches especially the track coaches. The teachers were awesome! I loved having The Habisch and Goeglein! I'm definitely visiting this school when I'm on break!
I think the world of NHHS! I am a 2002 graduate and I would go back in a heart beat. People who do not think the extracurricular activities were good is probably because they were never involved. There is something for everyone at NHHS! It ranges from student government academic clubs band and sports. NHHS prepared me for college. Administration was good. Parents that wanted to be involved were involved and those who did not care were not involved. It's all about what you are willing to do and how involved you want to be. GO BULLDOGS!
If you have any alternative school for your child to choose from please do so! While high schools are supposed to be involved with the community from which it receives children this school is ridiculous. Whatever the oldest child of a family was like each successive child will benefit from or pay for. If your family is of longtime residence then you can probably coast through the entire four years. Sports here have been back and forth on being worthwhile. Other problems stem from the administration. Children who at no other school would be disciplined are cited for small to pointless 'violations' of the rules. I spent some of the worst four years here ever. The upside is that Fort Wayne has so many schools that once you walk out the doors at 3pm you no longer have to associate yourself with the students or the faculty.
My daughter attends this school and so has my older son and both of them recount their previous and current experiences as less than memorable. Many of the teachers are biased helping the students with whom they believe have the academic potential to succeed or whose names are just well known around the school. My daughter has trouble in math and each teacher she has had for this subject has been of no aid to her whatsoever. She said the teachers got frustrated with her when she didn't understand material and often seemed as though she annoyed them with her questions. I do not advocate this school in any way and if you have any alternative choice for your child's education I would advise seeking it out. If I had any other choice in schools my daughter would definitely be switching ASAP.
The teachers here are wonderful; they're willing to help and want to see the students succeed. However the administration within the school is less than efficient. There is little response to input from parents and on more than one occasion parents have simply been ignored. They are more concerned with making and enforcing petty rules than they are with the quality of the students' education. Like I said though the teachers are great; they were extremely helpful to me throughout my 4 years there and I felt as though I learned a lot. This school has potential but they need a principal who is there for the kids not for his own glory. Once they take care of that problem the school will improve drastically and teachers and students alike would all be happier.
Great School. Academics is the focus. Has community involvement.
