Principal's Message

A Message from Mr. Bowman

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I am extremely proud to be the principal of Newark High School. This is a very special place and our school is the focal point of many positive activities and events within our community. I have had the privilege of working at NHS for the past 22 years. During this time, I have thoroughly enjoyed watching our young men and women grow up, graduate from high school and move on to college, a job or a technical/trade school.

Your children are important to you and they are important to me. Children will learn more and perform better when parents are involved in their education, and of course our children all enjoy having the support of their family members.

I believe that communication is the key to a successful educational experience. Together, we will continue to improve the quality of our school community and provide the best experience for all students at Newark High School. Education is truly a partnership between the school, students, parents/guardians, and community.

Students - I encourage you to become involved in your school and participate in a variety of academic and extra-curricular activities. Join the Newark High tradition and become a part of the rich academic, co-curricular, and extra-curricular programs that Newark High has to offer. Get involved, stay active and enjoy the high school experience!

During this 2019-2020 school year, we will continue to build upon and refine our foundation of hard work and tradition to help our students achieve excellence. Our teachers have some of the finest training and skills and are well prepared to focus on the basic skills as well as enrichment opportunities for our students. NHS is also fortunate to have a wide variety of options in the arts, music, drama, and athletics available to all students.

I look forward to working with our students, staff, parents, and community to continue to make Newark High School the best that it can be. Let’s have a great year---Go Cats!!
