North Hills School District is an excellent place of learning and education. The building and the learning environment itself make for a great experience. The faculty to student ratio allows for you to make a connection with your teaching instructor and not become "just another number" in the school. The school offers many great facilities for students to use including basketball courts, weight rooms, and a swimming pool. The large variety of classes you can take allows for any student of any age to find their interests!
North Hills was a wonderful place to go to school! High school was fun, there was so much spirit, the student sections at sporting events especially, were always so energetic and fun! You really felt like you belonged. Most of the teachers I had from elementary to high school were awesome as well. Of course there were ones I didn't like, but that didn't get in the way of me earning a great education and still enjoying the atmosphere of the school. North hills offered me a valuable education, great friends, and college readiness. If you're looking to move into the area, I would definitely say do it!
