  • Update - NHS Midterm Exams

    Newmark High School’s educational approach is to continually assess students’ performance through a wide range of methods including but not limited to observation, discussion, projects, classwork, quizzes and exams. It has become evident that midterm exams are no longer the most efficient or valuable method to ascertain student content knowledge and as such, Newmark High School will no longer require midterm exams. Teachers will continue to make instructional decisions based on their assessments and objective data with the goal of closing learning gaps and/or enriching mastered content.

  • Selective Service - Registration for Men 18-25

    Selective Service registration is required by law as the first part of a fair and equitable system that, if authorized by the President and Congress, would rapidly provide personnel to the Department of Defense while at the same time providing for an Alternative Service Program for conscientious objectors. By registering, a young man remains eligible for jobs, Federal student aid, State-based student aid in 31 states, Federally-funded job training, and U.S. citizenship for immigrant men.
     
    Who Must Register with Selective Service
    • Almost all men age 18-25 who are U.S. citizens or are immigrants living in the U.S. are required to be registered with Selective Service. U.S. law calls for citizens to register within 30 days of turning 18 and immigrants to register within 30 days of arriving in the U.S.
