Newton North High SchoolBringing Down the House – the City of Newton Says Good-Bye to an Era

Next September the new Newton North High School will open after many years of delay and controversy. Over the past few months, a new mayor was voted in and a new superintendent will start on July 1.  This is a pivotal time for The Garden City, Newton. To mark this occasion PTSO and alumni volunteers, with the cooperation of the school department and city hall, are crafting an amazing city-wide event. http://www.northptso.org/.
