North Hills School District Reviews

All Categories
North Hills is a good school. Most of the teachers are awesome and caring, great academics, and great clubs. The only thing I hate is how obsessed the district is with our marching band. It's more talked about than our football team! It can be a little annoying sometimes. Also, I liked THON better in the middle of the night so my whole Saturday wasn't wasted.
Review North Hills School District
North Hills is a great school for anyone to go to. The teachers are good and try to conform to the needs of each individual student. North Hills offers a wide variety of courses and offers many challenging programs as well such as plenty of CHS and AP courses and 6 different Academies, each of which "afford students an opportunity to explore a career field and develop transferable academic and workplace skills, while earning both high school and possibly college credit." Another key feature at North Hills is the extensive list of extracurricular activities for the student body to become involved with, such as sports, academic clubs, and other interesting activities.
Growing up in the North Hills was wonderful. I still live here and have the same friend group I did in elementary school. The bonds and sense of community that North Hills has provided me will always be special. The schools are very nice and close together for commute times. They have great before and after school programs. The class sizes are perfect: not too large or small. I loved most of my teachers because they truly cared about the students. It was a great school!
