Northampton Area School District Reviews
I liked the teachers and counselors. They are friendly and patient. My teachers helped me in so many various ways I cannot list them all. My counselor was amazing and always available to me whenever I needed him. I felt safe in my school and any bullying problems that were presented were taken care of immediately. I would change the fact that because our Ice Hockey team is not a part of the PIAA, it is not recognized as a school sport even though we play as the KIDS and use their logo. It something I've been fighting to change. My overall experience with my school has been excellent!
Northampton Area School District does a great job of providing AP classes as well as honors classes in order to produce students that are competitive with those of other schools. The only thing that I would change is that it does not seem as though students are prepared for the overall college life so that is something I would change. Great facilities, and an awesome sports culture that is far better than other around town!
The academics and classes offered are really good and they give everyone a good opportunity to take any kind of class they want, with a large selection to choose from. However, book worms like me feel as if the school spends most of their money on sports. Instead of building a new parking lot, there is yet another soccer field, baseball field, or something else related to sports. Often times, clubs struggle to be noticed by the administration and have to work 10 times harder to be heard. Overall, Northampton is average and could improve on a few things.
