Community Information

Newfields is a small village (less than seven square miles) located between Exeter and Newmarket. We like to refer to our town as "the small town with a big heart." Although we have grown considerably over the past 10 years, we have retained our small town charm with just under 1,800 residents. Our government is run by a three-person Board of Selectmen with a part-time administrator managing the day-to-day town business. Our school system is made up of the Newfields Elementary School for grades Kindergarten through Five. Our students then go on to the Cooperative Middle School and the Exeter Regional High School.
