Northampton County Schools Reviews
My experience being in the Northampton County school setting is interesting. There is a lot of things that need improvement. During my last year of high school every decision is being made last minute. The guidance counselor has favorites and does not seem to be doing their job the best of their ability. The administration staff is always trying to keep us locked up like prisoners and always focusing on the wrong things. The food is terrible, I wouldn't even feed it to my dog. But overall extracurricular activities like band, was the best time of my life I had so much fun.
I like the diversity and the somewhat freedom that seniors get. I didn't like the surprise metal detectors, but overall the schools made learning fun sometimes.
I was educated on how to take tests. Poorly funded no effective changes, school needs teachers. Government involvement would be nice too. No hope here. Students lack because of poverty.
