    I graduated from Newcomerstown over a decade ago. While I don't live in the area anymore I would love to find a school like Newcomerstown for my children to go to. The teachers cared there was a great sense of community and I feel they did a great job preparing me for college and beyond.

    I am currently searching for a school for my daughter as I grew up in the NCT school district. I did not have the appropriate last name there for didn't get the same opportunities as the other students. I was not allowed to go to post secondary although I was on the honor roll my entire schooling. When I told them what I wanted to be in high school I was told to pick something else because I probably wouldn't make it. Thankfully I didn't listen to them and have been working in my profession for 4 years now. I was the only student out of 6 in my class that actually graduated in my profession. The students are not this schools priority it is only their wallets. I will do what ever I have to not to send my daughter to this school
