Reasoning for assessment: Barely a B-class. Needs more citations and references. Cleanup? — Calebrw (talk) 00:31, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

[edit]

This article appears to be written in the manner of promotional literature, rather than from an unbiased perspective. Sonicwav 15:16, 12 September 2007 (UTC)

I've read the page and several pages from comparable schools, and the only part that reeks of... brochurity... is the Mission and Philosophy section. Would anyone squawk if I revised that section and removed the advertisement style tag? Eshafto 15:17, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

By all means, edit, but I think there are problems with other sections as well, and so would disagree with removing the advertisement tag until the whole article can be revamped. For example, in the Campus section, there is currently phrasing like "a state-of-the-art computer facility" and "the wooded reaches of the Passaic River." I have a feeling that much of this text was copied straight out of Newark Academy's own language, or at least written by someone promoting the school. Unsupported statistics and countries of international students are listed in the Student Body section. There is too much specific information in here without citations. Even if the POV bias is fixed, this article is still going to need external links to back up that information. However, I would be against deleting the article outright, because it can provide a starting point for more neutral and supported text. --Sonicwav 20:04, 26 September 2007 (UTC)
