Newcomers High School was created to provide immigrant students with an academic program geared to achieve excellence by responding to their unique needs. Our school has designed a rigorous instructional program, while at the same time providing our students and their parents with a supportive environment in their new country. A unique feature of our school is that students have the opportunity to transfer to a variety of educational options and specialized programs available to high school students. The school identifies abilities, strengths, needs and interests, while offering programs that meet these needs. In addition to promoting academic and athletic excellence, our instructional program emphasizes important learning objectives such as the acquisition of English with an intensive English as a Second Language Program, the developing of native language skills, and the appreciation of cultural diversity.
