Preparing students for the next phase of their lives.
Newmark High School’s student population requires flexibility in terms of content and pace, so our academic curriculum is designed to serve as a general guideline.  We recognize that our teachers will make adaptations that are necessary to create learning conditions which are appropriate for individual student needs.  Our curriculum is designed to meet individual student goals.  We have the rigor required for the college-bound student, as well as the modifications and assistive technology necessary to help close educational gaps due to specific learning disabilities and lost school time.  All students will receive a comprehensive transition plan to help them prepare for life after graduation.

Newmark Parent, 2015

I just wanted to let you know how much we really love the Newmark High School and are constantly impressed with how they approach the students challenges.  Dr. Clemente has once again not just had the ability to understand Lucas but has also put in place some procedures to help him with his planning skills at school and his life.  She constantly impresses me!

You truly have found a terrific leader for our kids. There are also some other amazing staff as well and I find the high school to really have a number of passionate and dedicated people.  We really could not match this anywhere else.
