My favorite things about Northampton area school district was being involved. Northampton offers a lot of clubs you can participate in. Some of my favorite were winter track and volunteer club. Being involved and active made my high school experience one I will never forget. Along with being involved, Northampton shows good school spirt while making special days like school colors day And some fun dress up days like Hawaii day. Along with energy filling pep rally’s and A crowd cheering student section at football Friday night lights.
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!
