Northern Burlington County Regional School District Reviews

I've been to eight different schools and Northern has honestly quite an unsatisfying experience. There are some great ap teachers that prepare you well for the test and the lunch is actually pretty good with a salad/sandwich/burrito bar. It's super hot during summer since there's no AC, the hallways are super small and cramped, and the school is split into two buildings so during bad weather its terrible crossing. Administration seems like they're always looking for something to reprimand the students about. There's clear favoritism for the FFA club as well since they have a whole spirit week dedicated to them. Not gonna even mention other stuff but it's overall been a negative experience.

Average school experience, some good teachers, can improve on diversity, college readiness, modernize facilities, etc. The upcoming renovations should help, but I’ve found there to be somewhat of a lack of academic rigor and a culture focused on school spirit/sports events over education. I would’ve appreciated a stronger focus on preparing students for college and academic success rather than indirectly encouraging kids to not give 100% and keep their hopes low in terms of post-high school plans. With that being said, the school-sponsored events and school culture activities were great. Overall solid experience with some good memories and several very impactful teachers over my four years.
A good but strange school, there is no finals so it does not prepare you well for college, the education system is by far the easiest out of all schools I have attended making it easy to get good grades with out doing much. Great for a quick pass by, but sure if it’s all the good for people with bigger plans, it does not challenge enough. Seniors at max can get a half day, you can never leave campus. There have been a lot of racist issues through the school with students threatening to shoot other students, there is hardly AC in the building but the kids seem to have fun. Prom is overalls expensive compared to most schools.
