The World Health Organization deemed 2011-2020 the Decade of Action for Road Safety, and noted that road traffic injuries are one of the top three leading causes of death for ages 5-44 in developing countries. In 2004, road traffic injuries resulted in more than 1.27 million deaths, which is almost equal to the number of deaths caused by HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria combined.

College Planning Guide
The Newton North College Planning Guide is designed to help both students and parents/guardians navigate the nuts and bolts as well as the subtleties of the college process. As with anything in life, the process of applying to college is as much about planning and preparation as it is about patience and persistence.
At Newton North, we understand that students take different paths after they graduate. Based on the fact that the majority of Newton North graduates go on to some form of post-secondary education, the Counseling Department felt that it would be helpful to students and parents/guardians to have a comprehensive written guide pertaining to the college search and application process.
This guide is a supplement to the direct and personal support given by the Newton North guidance counselors and college counselors in the College and Career Center through individual and group meetings, discussions and presentations.
Below are the various languages the guide is available:
Korean part 1
Korean part 2
Korean part 3
